Default Artega GT Coupe headed for 2007 Geneva Motor Show

Artega GT Coupe headed for 2007 Geneva Motor Show

Quote:
Former Rolls Royce boss Klaus Dieter Frers and a team of auto-industry experts have developed the new Artega GT Coupe. The car, which will be officially unveiled at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show, is roughly the same size as Volkswagen’s small Polo hatch. It measures just 3.95m in length and 1.87m wide, and with a height of only 1.18m, is no taller than a Lamborghini Gallardo.

The car’s lines were penned by none other than former Aston Martin designer, Henrik Fisker, while its running gear was developed by former Porsche technical designer Hardy Essig. Under the hood is a 3.6L V6 engine borrowed from Volkswagen that develops 300hp, enough to propel the Artega to its 270km/h top speed. Production will start in November this year at a plant in Delbrueck, Germany, with sales expected to begin in the middle of next year.

The creators hope to sell the car in markets as diverse as the US, Eastern Europe, Japan, Asia and in the Middle East, however, sales will be limited to Germany initially. Only 500 units will be constructed per year, and according to Auto Motor und Sport, it should sell for roughly €75,000.

Humm.... Lets see what we got here.

Rolls Royce = Treating the customer right
Aston Martin = Styling
Porsche = Engineering

Small, lightweight, looks to be mid-engine, 300 HP car.

The only thing I don't like, besides the price, is the VW motor. Although I have been hearing some decent things from the 3.6 motor.
