(from Orca Press Release) Chassis (Monocoque)

All chassis-parts content 10 ? 12 layers of carbonfiber/nomex, which are baked in the Autoclave oven. The chassis (5 parts) are glued together after the first time in the oven, hardened and go back into the oven again.

The entire chassis-construction can be disassembled in three sections (front, mid and rear). All fitted
elements are made of corbonfiber as well as stiffened with aluminum. There is a fast-lift attached to the

aluminum by CNC machining and are covered with a layer of carbonfiber. Ventilated and cross-drilled carbon composite brakes front and rear. Eight-piston brake calipers.

heard about this a long time ago, not really impressed. however it will supposedly break the 250mph mark.
and i doubt it will weigh that much.

The specs are amazing, but in the looks department, it seems kind of outdated.

I like the way it looks too. Wicked. Much like the Gumpert Apollo.

I am a big fan of function dictating form. (McLaren F1, VW Beetle, RS200, a bunch of BMW's, Mazda Rx-7 (FC&FD)... They always look better to my eyes when they look like they were made for a specific task.

Homologation cars = perfection.

Lets hope this one makes it into prduction.

[edit] OOOoooo.... I just realized MTM is helping in th engine dept. Me likeeee! :D 8) :D
