Default Slovenia's Aventador rival

Quote:
Slovenian supercar maker Tushek Supercars is planning to build a rival to the Lamborghini Aventador. Called Tushek Forego T700, the new model has a target kerb weight of less than 1000kg and power in excess of 700bhp.
Aljosa Tushek, founder of Tushek Supercars, also confirmed the new car would be able to pull up to 3.3g in extreme cornering. That's double the figure claimed for Tushek's first production car (and thought to be Slovenia's first supercar), the Renovatio T500, which made its world debut in Monaco at the Top Marques supercar show last weekend.
Powered by a 444bhp 4.2-litre Audi V8 engine, the Tushek Renovatio T500 hits 62mph from rest in a claimed 3.7 seconds on the way to a top speed just short of 200mph. Pricing starts at about 245,000 and Tushek plans on making just 30 units before focusing on the new Lamborghini rival.
Tushek told Autocar: "We only plan to make 30 pieces. Our two prototypes are sold and this is our first production car. It is 100 per cent made in Slovenia and is designed as a compromise between everyday use and track use. We expect the first customer cars to be ready by the end of the summer."

Not going to be the Aventador's rival. But it looks like a cool car.

A 700hp engine in a K1 Attack kit car? Does this seem like a death wish to anyone else? Not to mention an un-credited copy of someone else's design?




I don't think Tushek Supercars in Slovenia, originated the K1 Attack. K1 Attack was from K1 Engineering, in Slovakia. They are two different countries, that don't even share a border.

Car&Driver Specialty File: Build Your Own Supercar: K1 Attack



Slovakia was formerly half of Czekoslovakia. Slovenia was in the former Yugoslavia.


Additional note: the URL on that pictured K-1 lapsed registration earlier this month, and is pending renewal or deletion. I wonder if Tushek has acquired K-1 Engineering and it's resources.

I wish some company would just re-release the K1 kit. I would love to build one of them.

+1, although he could have purchased the rights, without a need to advertise that.

There is a Kit car magazine, or something similar and couple years ago I was reading the story of someone that imported a kit and built a car, was very entertaining.

Yeah, I read those all the time. The K1 was always a PITA to get in the US. There are a few floating around, sometime kits come up for sale, but they always seem to be pretty expensive.

I think the DDR kit would be a pretty cool and inexpensive exotic kit build.
