Designed and built in California, the new American supercar is based on a Lotus Evora.
California’s Bulleta Motors has revealed its RF22 sports car, named after the F-22 Raptor stealth fighter plane. Using a Lotus Evora as a base, designer Samir Sadikhov, best known for penning the Aston Martin DBC and Cadillac C-Ville concepts, created a unique composite body that buyers can order in carbon fiber. An aggressive front fascia and stylish rear end set the RF22 apart from the Evora with notable highlights including bi-xenon headlights, front lip spoiler, prominent diffuser, center-mounted twin exhaust, roof scoop, carbon-ceramic brakes and 19-inch carbon-fiber wheels.
Power comes from a 3.5-liter V6 rated at 505 hp and 410 lb-ft of torque, which is enough to propel the 1,363 kg sports car from 0-60 mph in 3.6 seconds. Price for the RF22 has yet to be revealed, but the car will come with a Swiss time piece individually numbered to match its serial number. Update: Kevin Smith, Lotus Cars USA Marketing and PR Communications executive contacted us to refute Bulletta Motor's claim. "I'm writing to inform you that the story you've posted about the "Buletta RF22" is based on nothing but VAPOR. I work for Lotus Cars USA, Inc. and can tell you Lotus is NOT selling Evora Chassis to this outfit for their vaporcar."
