Exclamation Barabus TKR: An Exotic 1005-Horsepower Super Car

Not really the nicest looking Italian exotic car, but it's sure fast... :corn




Barabus TKR: An Exotic 1005-Horsepower Super Car
Source: Barabus | Published: July 21, 2006



Designed, engineered, certified and marketed by a company called Barabus Sportscars Limited, TKR was conceived to combine more power than a Formula One racecar with the driving pleasure of a road car. Working with some of the world’s most respected and technologically advanced automotive suppliers, the TKR should put power and looks to the front of the motor industry.

Barabus Sportscars, a specialty engine and vehicle manufacturer, has created one of the most powerful super cars available. The engine is designed and built by Barabus and incorporates modern racing motor technology and engineering. Based on a V8 all aluminum block re-engineered by Barabus, the twin turbo dual intercooler engine generates 1005 horsepower at 6800 rpm; redlining at 7500 rpm.

According to Barabus, the TKR is capable of 270 miles per hour and 0-60 mph time of 1.67 s.

The styling was clearly inspired by other super cars, especially the Saleen S7 TT (front) and the Pagani Zonda (back).

The car is to be made in Italy and the power plant is built in the United Kingdom. While the TKR is a true Italian supercar, the vehicle itself reflects a "best-in-practice" philosophy, where Barabus has incorporated superior components from around the globe in order to manufacture the best vehicle possible. The TKR utilizes ceramic brakes as well as numerous high technology pieces from companies located in Italy.

The Barabus TKR is available for sale worldwide. Built in Colonella, Italy, the company wants to sell the car through select Barabus certified dealers specializing in exotic automobiles. Worldwide volume is projected to be 300-400 cars over the estimated three-year production run.

The first vehicles are expected to be delivered to customers in four months. The Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) is $660,000.

Sweet, but one thing, if I'm paying that much money I would like to have some type of exotic engine and not some GM special.
