The Spirra - Korean super sports car

The car is powered by a 2.7 liter V6 engine from a Hyundai , which deliver 175 ps and 245 Nm of torque at 6000 rpm. The second version of this engine features turbocharger and it is boosted to 330 ps and 471 Nm of torque. The third option is 400 PS and peak torque of 490 Nm of torque, thanks to a huge turbocharger.
The top-of-range features two turbo-chargers and power of 500PS and 539 Nm. Combined with 6 speed manual gearbox, the car catapults itself to a 100 km/h in 3.5 seconds and top speed is 310 km/h.
Spirra stands on big 19" wheels fitted with 225/40 R19 front and 275/40 R19 rear tyres.
The bodyshell is made entirely from carbon fibre around a tubular spaceframe. The construction has incredible strength and in the same time it is super lightweight. Although it is the first super car, which comes from South Korea, it is a real monster on the road.
