Blows from 0-62 mph in just 2.7 seconds.
French supercar-startup Genty Automobile has been floating around on our radar for some time now, with promises to produce the Akylone supercar originating in 2011. Now, the company has revealed some more details about this model - which is due to become a reality at some point in the future, maybe after their next summer vacation. Sarcasm aside, the Akylone looks to be very promising, should it ever make it into production.
Firstly, Genty promises that it can build bespoke engines able to produce up to 1,200 horsepower and 961 lb-ft of torque. Mated to a six-speed sequential transmission, the car will be able to sprint from 0-62 mph in 2.7 seconds, and 0-124 mph in just 7.2 seconds. The car will be built with an emphasis on carbon-fiber and aluminum, allowing it to weigh in at a mere 1,100 kg. Of course, these numbers have yet to become a reality, with the company still working to raise funds to build a full-size prototype Akylone.
