If we talk about radical sports car design, one of the leading brands is certainly Lamborghini. The Italian firm develops an aesthetic cars impossible to overlook, but it also provides a permanent source of inspiration for novice designers.
The same has happened with the Mexican Daniel Chinchilla and Alberto Fernandez, who created the Indomitable Lamborghini supported by the Italian manufacturer itself. It is inspired by the F-22 Raptor (like the Resale ), and liked the product so much that even a U.S. company has bought the rights to manufacture.
This is the company’s 215 Racing (based in Pennsylvania) that will manufacture the model on their own, and although they have the patronage of Lamborghini not be able to put that name at the time to market, will be called Mostro Di-Potenza SF22 .
This “brute power” has not been named in vain, as promises to the power of 2,000 hp with maximum torque of 2,700 Nm. That is really bestial figures. It shall be provided with an engine of 9.4 liters and eight cylinders in V, with two turbos. Will also have a sequential automatic transmission No 6 speed can reach a speed of 426 km / h.
The obligatory question is can they accomplish all this? The company is not an expert in these matters, and these benefits are not playing anything. But they’re determined to complete the project. Plan to build 50 units of Mostro Di-Potenza SF22 since mid-2012 at a rate of 2 per week.
It will cost 950,000 dollars (about 670,000 euros) and can reserve a copy by paying a thousand dollars. Hopefully this supercar so promising, but uncertain, got to see the light.
The McLaren MP4-12C is a supercar that will come to stand up to the most mentaditos the segment, including Porsche and Ferrari. Be marketed in a limited number of units, franchised dealers around the world, and has a price that does not seem so exaggerated considering its many virtues: starts from 200,000 euros. Not cheap, of course, but other brands tend to show higher rates for similar vehicles and sometimes even lower.
The MP4-12C finally shows its technical data and features, which only confirm what a great car it is. Equipped with a twin-turbo V8 engine of 3,799 cc displacement, located lengthwise and made of aluminum. It delivers a power of 600 hp at 7,000 rpm, but can stretch up to 8,500 rpm. With its maximum torque of 600 Nm constant between 3,000 and 7,000 rpm, comes the power to the rear wheels through a seven-speed transmission.
This car also has a low unladen weight of 1,336 kg, thanks to a structure made of carbon fiber and aluminum. To make matters worse, with options for weight reduction can reduce 35 kg extra. In terms of dimensions, the length is 4.5 meters, width 1.9 and height of 1.19 meters.
Pirelli PZero tires take in dimensions 235/35 R19 at the front axle and 305/30 R20 at the rear. Your brake discs (370 and 350 mm) are conventional, but very effective as a braking 100-0 announce Km / h in 30.5 meters and 200-0 km / h in only 123 meters.
Performance of the McLaren MP4-12C are not far behind. The maximum speed is 330 km / h, with acceleration from 0-100 km / h in 3.3 seconds, 0-200 km / h in 9.1 seconds,0-400 meters in 10.9 seconds and 0-1000 meters by 19.6 seconds. The average consumption stays at 11.7 litres/100 km, while the average CO2 emissions are 279 g / km.
