The analog hypercar isn't dead. Here's proof.
A couple of years ago we learned about a Las Vegas-based boutique supercar company called PSC Motors and its SP-200 SIN concept. It has since been renamed Casil Motors and its production-spec new car is described as “the ultimate enthusiast driven supercar, uninterrupted by modern electronic aids and built from the ashes of Bugatti.” That’s right. It's got Bugatti origins before it became a part of the VW Group. The SP-110 Edonis is that supercar. Here’s its backstory.
When Bugatti went bankrupt in the late 1990s, a group of its then newly laid off engineers pooled their money and resources together and bought 17 leftover EB110 carbon fiber tubs. They called their car Edonis and it was revealed in 2001. After that, little to nothing. But the new Casil Motors, headed by CEO Antonio Calva, is will now build the Edonis nearly 18 years later. Calva claims he acquired the rights to the project last year and got the ball rolling. The reborn hand-crafted aluminum-bodied Edonis will be powered by a twin-turbo 3.8-liter 12-cylidner engine with 720 hp and paired to a six-speed manual transmission, sending power directly to the rear wheels. The company claims a 0-60 mph in just 3.4 seconds and a top speed in excess of 220 mph.
Casil Motors further adds the car you’re looking at is exactly what the final production version will look at, though the car itself is in the “final stages of development.” Production will begin very soon and the plan, as of now, is to build 15 examples at a price of $849,190 each.
