The german text says that there are only 21 cars of this model. They are real raceing cars and are not street legal. Weight was reduce by 300kg to now 1300kg.

Ha ha, probably they removed the electric seats and aircon.

What a waste of time.

That said, that engine is, in road tune at least, very reliable so perhaps endurance racing will suit it. Although it seems you need a V12 diesel these days.

I dont mind it.... the rear diffuser could look and work so much better on a road car... the racing unit just looks ugly .... other then that, I don't mind this body-kit at all

As far as needing a v12 diesel to win in endurance racing.... lest we forget how the LMP2's in ALMS have totally DOMINATED the LMP1 Audi Diesel's this season with their smaller displacement, n/a engines

Never heard of this car either, but it looks pretty mean. I'd love to see this on a racetrack. Any info of any mods to the engine?

I'm most impressed that this cars shows up at a dealer and nobody, not even rumour came up before ( at least to my knowledge, also carpassion didn't had a clue)

respect to keep it "confidential"

about the car,
let's race them together
Fxx vs MC12 Corsa vs ZOndaR vs LSR GTR vs R-GT

Heh, nice touch of plaid on the interior

and all this for the low price of 775,000 Euros! :shock:

I'm assuming this car isn't street legal?

Laut ihm ist der Wagen deutlich lauter als die normalen SLR und man hört nun umso besser das V8 Bollern
