Cool Cars You Have Never Heard Of
Some cars you have never heard of are cooler than an Eskimo's fridge-freezer.
Some cars you have never heard of are cooler than an Eskimo's fridge-freezer. Check- out the GTA Motor Spano for proof. This Spanish supercar has an 8.3-litre V10 engine that propels 820bhp through seven-speed transmission to the rear wheels. The result is 0- 62mph in 2.9 seconds and a top speed of about 217mph. And guess what? This predator - which also knocks-out 960Nm of torque - is rarer than an Eskimo wearing a thin cardigan. Why? Because only ninety-nine will be produced. But that is still considerable compared to the Tushek Renovatio T500, as it is limited to a production run of thirty. This beast is inspired by the legendary Attack Roadster kit car, and has a potent 4.2-litre 450bhp Audi engine and six-speed transmission from the S5. These send the Renovatio T500 to 62mph in 3.7 seconds and on to 193mph. Great stuff, as are its scissor doors and removable roof.That brings us to the Mitsuoka Orochi which – apparently – is supposed to look like a snake and fish. Err, okay then. This Japanese supercar has a Toyota 3.3-litre 230bhp V6 engine that propels it to 62mph in about 7 seconds. Not particularly fast, but at least it has a reasonable ride. But please, sort out the styling. It is enough to put an Eskimo off his fish supper. In contrast, the Zenvo ST1 has sharp purposeful lines to inspire confidence. This is hand built in Denmark, has a 7.0-litre V8 engine, and a monstrous 1,104bhp. It, therefore, hits 62mph in 3 seconds and accelerates to an electronically limited 233mph. Only fifteen are likely to be built, making it rarer than hen teeth at the North Pole. The Vertigo 5 looks tremendous too. This was developed in Belgium by Tony Gillet, and an earlier version held the world record for the fastest 0-100kph sprint. The latest incarnation has a 4.2-litre Ferrari engine, and is hand built. Equally thrilling, ownership grants access to tracks where owners can thrash their cars. That sounds cooler than an Eskimo's air-con.
