Arrera Automobili plans to put the 840-hp supercar into production.
Despite there being a huge range of supercars out there, more and more are on the way. In the virtual world, Jaguar is bringing a new car to the party, but there are plenty of real-life offerings coming soon too, among them the Maserati MC20. The car you see below is something of a mix of the two, as it is a render of a car that is intended to become a real machine sometime in the near future. Designed by visual artist Quendrim Thaqi, this new machine aims to be the first Albanian supercar ever and based on its looks, it's off to a good start.
Thaqi has worked on renders before, having designed his idea of a successor to the Porsche 918 Spyder in the past. With his new company, Arrera Automobili, the artist aims to blend the best of his favorite design cues into one machine. It does look a little like the sort of supercar you'd find in a video game like Grand Theft Auto, but that makes it no less of a head-turner.
Vertical LED headlights encased in carbon fiber tie in with vents on the front wings and a massive air dam with a separate splitter. The rear arches have a hint of Lamborghini Gallardo to them, while the massive rear diffuser, dual-exit exhaust tips, fixed rear wing, and taillights seem like a mashup of a Le Mans racer and a Lykan Hypersport.
This new supercar will be called the Illyrian Pure Sport, and will be powered by a 6.2-liter twin-turbocharged LT2 V8, with a little under 840 horsepower going to all four wheels via an eight-speed Tremec dual-clutch automatic. Thaqi claims that his creation will be capable of doing the 0-62 mph sprint in just 2.7 seconds, and will be able to achieve a top speed of around 233 mph. Thaqi claims that he does have engineering and body production teams in on the project, but there doesn't seem to be too much detail about when such a machine might see the light of day. Here's hoping it'll be worth the wait if/when it finally arrives.
