Surely cars can’t get any more powerful?
A lightweight racing car made good for the road, it is a sublimely styled, monstrously powerful supercar which – if it’s as good in real life as on paper – should put shivers up the spines of Ferrari, Lamborghini, Aston Martin…and any other supercar maker on earth.
The ‘base’ model is powered by a 7-litre Corvette V8 producing 550bhp, which is perfectly acceptable.
But Arash told us he was working on a twin-supercharged V8 which should produce over 1,200bhp.
Surely, that’s just too much?
The Bugatti Veyron was nearly laughed out of Wolfsburg when VW announced it wanted to build a 1,000bhp motor – but thanks to ruthlessly efficient engineering and a stack of cash, it’s the most driveable 1,000bhp+ motor on earth.
Sure – there are others, and we don’t doubt for a second Arash’s ability. But does the world really need another 1,200bhp supercar?
