Lamborghini’s New Rival from Slovenia - Tushek Renovatio T500 and Forego

The Renovatio T500 has made its world debut while a lighter, faster Forego T700 model was announced.

The automotive pride and joy of Slovenia, Tushek Supercars, has given their Renovatio T500 its world debut at the Top Marques Monaco show. The powerful, fast and lightweight supercar was being ogled from every direction while Tushek was telling anyone that would listen about a brand-new Forego T700 model, set to rival the Lamborghini Aventador. Ask a quick refresher, the Renovatio T500 runs on an Audi-sourced 450hp 4.2-liter V8 engine which can propel its sub-2,500lbs curb weight from 0-62mph in just 3.7 seconds.

It can hit a top speed of over 193mph. The supercar features a removable hard-top roof, large carbon fiber rear wing and scissor doors. Along with an aerodynamic design, carbon ceramic brakes have been added to handle the Slovenian car's power.

Tushek has said that the Lamborghini Aventador-rivaling Forego T700 will have a curb weight of under 2,205lbs (1,000kg) and pack power numbers of over 700hp. The Slovenian company has said of their Renovatio T500, currently on display in Monaco, that "We only plan to make 30 pieces. Our two prototypes are sold and this is our first production car." They continued "It is 100 percent made in Slovenia and is designed as a compromise between everyday use and track use. We expect the first customer cars to be ready by the end of the summer."

Tushek has said pricing for the Renovatio T500 will start at around £245,000 and with 30 units planned, potential buyers will need to act fast. The Tushek Forego will finish development and head into production in late 2012.
