Australian Supercar Arrives

This past weekend at the Australian International Motor Show, Australian supercar maker Joss has debuted their JP1 prototype. It's light weight 6.6-liter V8 engine gives it a 3 second acceleration from 0-60 and a top speed of up to 224 mph.

This past weekend at the Australian Motor Show, Joss released its prototype of the JP1 supercar. The JP1 was fully designed and engineered in Australia, and while it has a very conventional supercar design, it is clearly built more for aerodynamics over style. The JP1 has a pure carbon fiber and aluminum chassis and weighs around a light 2,200lbs. The Australian automaker has given the JP1 a nice 6.6-liter V8 engine that gives it a total 500hp output.

The key to the JP1's speed, however, is not only its low weight but its Albins Zeroshift Automated Manual Transmission. Currently, the Albins' transmission is one of the fastest and lightest in production. Performance numbers are solid, putting up a 0-60 acceleration of 3 seconds flat and is capable of hitting up to 224mph. For comparison purposes, that's faster than a Ferrari FF or a Lamborghini Aventador. Pricing for the JP1 supercar is expected to begin around $500,000 with only 25 units scheduled for production.
