Motor Authority said:
Artega GT Coupe headed for Geneva
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.

Very nice - I like that a lot. Great to see someone not just throwing sheer motor at it too.

Is that now mid-engined or rear-engined, looks more like rear-engined to me, especially considering it was developed by a former Porsche Engineer.

But with 300bhp :evil:

Depending on how luxurious it will be, it could be pretty light as well. I like the idea, just have to wait and see what it will look like at Geneva in a few days.

That's sweet - I mean it just looks like a great drive, nice and compact. Yeah, I'm liking it a hell of a lot.

I like it, but it's not really thrilling to look at.

You can find a more exciting looking coupe for $20k. For $90k it hd better either be more elegant or more absurd in its design.

Or it should be able to space travel.
I hate it. I hate the looks. It should probably replace the Boxter I think.





























But I still don't like the looks.
