Ferrari, McLaren, and Lamborghini are in its crosshairs.
As India grows into an economic powerhouse, one man couldn’t help but notice that the country does not yet have its own supercar. After all, the country does have over 100 of the world’s billionaires. This man is Sarthak Paul, owner of Mean Metal Motors, a company yearning to build its M-Zero supercar. Paul has been trying to raise money for his venture by releasing pictures and information on the M-Zero, but he now plans to drum up more funds by releasing a model of his concept at the 2016 Paris Auto Show.
On top of the M-Zero’s crosshair shaped rear end, Paul plans to debut his supercar with a fingerprint unlocking system and a new smart composite material called “carbo-flax.” The Indian entrepreneur says that carbo-flax is lighter than carbon fiber and a tenth of the price. Paul has many skeptics but he refuses to be swayed and even says that his young company has acquired some of the best automotive engineering talent in the country. With the car predicted to make a 0-60 sprint in less than 3.0 seconds, have a top speed of more than 200 mph, and be powered by a hybrid system like the one from the LaFerrari, let's hope that Paul’s Paris Auto Show appearance can drum up the needed investors.
