    engine, but those cable look a bit mess

    Re: is this going to be the next british super car!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Is the car super light or something? B/C the HP doesnt seem overwhelming. Looks like thye are buying some steering wheels from Ferrari. Its a cool car though.

    Yeah, it's 2,300 lbs, so 355hp is great (same as 997S with 40% less weight).

    Re: is this going to be the next british super car!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Any indication of the price for the n/a and Turbo versions?

    Yep, light weight is the key to cars like this and the Noble.

    Check out the steering wheels in the latest Elise as well. They are sourced from Momo.

    Re: is this going to be the next british super car!!!!!!!!!!

    ahhh nice car

    please post driving impressions ASAP

    Re: is this going to be the next british super car!!!!!!!!!!

    That looks like it has great potential. Let us know what its like.

    Re: is this going to be the next british super car!!!!!!!!!!

    there is a video on their website, and this car only weight about 1000kg which is very light weight ,

    anyway , they said you can upgrade the car to 580bhp of cause will cost a lot more.

    but this is the first british car that i impress about their styling!!

    Re: is this going to be the next british super car!!!!!!!!!!

    580bhp and 1000kg, that's interesting.

    Re: is this going to be the next british super car!!!!!!!!!!

    That's a great looking car. I can see a clear influence form other manufacturers. The front looks very Carrera GT to me, and the rear seems to hint at the McLaren F1. That wheel looks like a tribute to the Ferrari Enzo.
    The numbers are impressive, especially the weight.
    Thanks for posting.

    Re: is this going to be the next british super car!!!!!!!!!!

    interior is not bad, i'm quite impressed by it as well

    Re: is this going to be the next british super car!!!!!!!!!!

    its an audi rs4 engine. they did not use the tuned version of 500+hp beacause they though nobody would buy it for 150k price range. they said people would much rather buy a ferrari.

    its going to be offered at 70k. performance aint that good aswell. if it was they would have posted on the net.

    btw this car is made by a rich kid.

    Is $70k for the twin turbo 355hp version or for the non-turbo version? I think it's a great deal if you get the TT for that!

    Re: is this going to be the next british super car!!!!!!!!!!

    70k US dollars?

    I got the price list for the small version, the standard GTS with 275 HP, and that's 48k GBP (= app. $84k) without extras, so I doubt the TT will cost $70k.

    Re: is this going to be the next british super car!!!!!!!!!!

    yes ! they just reply that the car is ready for test drive in novemenber!

    Ente - the prices for cars sold in UK and US are never just a matter of currency conversion. You folks pay far more for the same car (due to taxes or other reasons?). So, it would not shock me if the car you pay 48k GBP only costs about $50k-$70k here. However, I agree that the Turbo probably would have a relatively higher jump in price from the base car than this...

    Sounds like the TT version will cost more than the price of a Noble here

    Oh so true. I moved from the US to the UK last year and I wasn't happy when I learned what cars cost over here.

    Still, $70k for the TT would be a tad optimistic .

    BTW: Filling out the customer feedback form on the website also renders a spec sheet and price list with the reply email.

    Re: is this going to be the next british super car!!!!!!!!!!

    Carrera GT's lost twin??? Especially in the 2nd pic.
    Its OK though.
