Mexico's Latest Supercar Looks Like A Confused Alien

And sounds too good to be true.

The majority of high-powered, good-looking supercars comeout of Italy or another European country. Mexico’s latest supercar—the Inferno—isled by Mexican engineers but is being built by Italian specialists. Interestingly,Italian Chief Designer Antonio Ferrioli is heading the design of thesupercar and has worked on various concepts for Lamborghini. The Infernosupercar is set to enter production in 2016, but there’s no word on whetherthis concept is a running example. With Italian styling and Mexican engineering, what could go wrong?

The interesting bodywork utilizes a mixture of Aluminum,Zinc and Silver, which is being referred to as “metal foam.” The company behindthe project of the supercar owns a patent to the material, so this will mostlikely be the first and only supercar that utilizes the mix. The material iscapable of stretching up to 100 times its original size to absorb impacts. Themost important aspect of the supercar is that it features a V8 engine capableof producing 1,400 hp and will be able to propel the Inferno to 245 mph. Zeroto 62 mph should take less than three seconds thanks to the Inferno’s aerodynamiccomponents. All of this sounds way too good to be true, but we’ll have to waitand see if this Mexican supercar can play with the best from Italy.
