Tushek Renovatio T500 is a Slovenian Supercar with Attitude

Video

Slovenia may not be known for making supercars, but one outfit aims to change that with the car you see here.

After racing cars for a living, Alijosa Tusek started work on selling a car called the K1 Attack. To cut a long story short, he didn't do a great job of it. So apart from keeping its tubular spaceframe chassis, the car was completely rebuilt. The Ford V6 was replaced by a mid-mounted 4.2-liter V8 from the Audi RS4, and an imprecisely molded fiberglass body was replaced by one made of carbon fiber. The result is the Tushek Renovatio T500.

Weighing a tad over 1,000kg and with 450 horsepower and 316 lb-ft of torque at its disposal, the Solvenian supercar is super quick, and with the roof down, not bad looking either. Power is sent to the rear wheels via a six-speed manual, propelling the supercar to 60 in 3.7 seconds and on to a top speed of 193 mph.

If you're questioning Slovenia's supercar-making credentials, consider that Ferrari and Ducati have their composite body panels made there, and Porsche makes its ceramic brakes there as well. Tusek plans to utilize the country's expertise in carbon fiber, ceramic composites and titanium in creating a modest run of 30 models, the first of which have already been sold. Bespoke tailoring including seating position and a host of options such as a sequential Hewland race gearbox come with the track-biased supercar that's priced at a cool 300,000 Euros.
