Not a huge fan of the Veyron, but I stumbled upon this rather cool photo. For anyone wondering, it is a Super Sport with the same exterior spec as the Sang Noir editions.

Here's something new from Croatia.


A bit of info. The owner, Mate Rimac, had a e30 BMW with a normal engine and all, but a couple of years ago the engine had gone. And he thought it would be a good idea to make an electric car for fun. So he bought the parts, the engine, batteries, electronics etc etc, and made an electric BMW. And that was fine and all, but he quickly found that he could make things better. The electric engine wasnt all that good, the batteries were too heavy and didnt have enough capacity, the electronics were faulty . . . So he started to modify all of those things, and eventually got to the point where he made all of the components by himself and his crew from scratch. The latest info i found is thats his engine has 1088HP, more than 3800Nm torques, 0-60mph in 2.8sec and a top speed of 305kmh (electronically limited). He ordered the diff. from BMW, cause he was constantly breaking them, cause none of them could handle that torque. The battery has 92kWh of power and a range of 600km.

Found this vid today, and apparently he has made an entire car now. WOW! Cant wait to see that. Here's some more older vids about the e30 BMW, this one has engl. subtitles:

And another older promo vid :


This is the official page of the new concept : LINK
Great post, looking forward to seeing their creation.

I don't know. Crazy bodykits on cars like that just make me think it's a replica of some sort. Like it could be a Mustang or a S2000 underneath.
My first thought was "why is a Supra with a Ferrari bodykit in this thread?" Then I noticed the EDO plates and realised it's a carbaged Ferrari.

What is this shite, he's saving the car so much... not even properly accelerating, lifting in the middle of the straight...
