Dagger GT will try to achieve the unthinkable. It is a 2000HP hyper car, which will be created by TranStar Racing. The team includes aerodynamics experts formerly with NASA and the designer of the Saleen S7. The car is specially created to break just about every record, top speed, acceleration and lap times.
The design is based on the Corvette Cheetah concept with carbon fiber body panels on a 4130 Chromoly Steel chassis.
The hyper car is powered by 572 multi-fuel twin-turbo racing power plant from Nelson Racing Engines with 2000BHP (1491 kW). The maximum torque will be around 2710Nm (2000 lb-ft) and the gearbox is a TranStar/Mendeola 6-speed. If this is not enough, TranStar has recently added that a 2500BHP option, NICE A?
0 to 60 mph is expected to be just 1.5 seconds and the top speed – the unbelievable 483 km/h (300mph). 1/4 mile in under 6.7 seconds.
Price will be $450 000 (€360 000) and only 5 units will be made available in 2011 and 10 units will be assembled and sold in 2012. We will be happy to see that.
