    Japan's Secret V6 Supercar

    Maybe somebody of u know something about this?

    "You'd be forgiven for thinking that this striking supercar was the work of one of the prestigious Italian styling houses. But it isn't - this is the Le Mans CL-1, and it has been created by a Japanese designer who wishes to remain anonymous. We can't work out why, as the high-performance machine is stunning!
    The roof and flanks have echoes of the Ferrari 360, while the tail-lamps hark back to Nissan's classic 300ZX Turbo. The car will be built by Le Mans Co of Tokyo, a small independent manufacturer which maintains track vehicles for Japan's Formula Nippon racing series. However, it also makes bespoke prototypes for big-name marques. The CL-1 name comes from the collaboration between Le Mans Co (the "L" and US tuner Caldwell Developments (the "C", which supplies the 3.5-litre V6 engine."

    "The powerplant is taken from the America-only Oldsmobile Intrigue. Boosted by 65bhp to 280bhp, it is mounted on a race-style alloy spaceframe chassis, and the car is clad in lightweight carbon fibre bodywork. Inside, the prototype's cockpit is hand-finished in leather, but to create more space for the driver, the selector for the standard four-speed automatic transmission has been replaced by a knob which is no bigger than that used to tune a radio.
    A more suitable gearbox, boasting as many as seven ratios, is currently being sourced by Le Mans Co, and will appear in production versions of the CL-1. The newcomer is expected to go on sale next month, and it will be available worldwide to selected customers. The price tag is anticipated to be approximately GBP 350,000."

    Aren't the front lights of Ford (in Europa)/ Mercury Cougar (in USA)?
