Revenge says it will be powered by a 400-horsepower Hp2g Hybrid engine that runs on E85 plus “its own recharge energy” and will feature “magnetically driven pistons,” netting the supercar an alleged 100 mpg at the pumps. Oh, and it’ll be available late this year for $190,000 in “American and European markets.” If you’re not into the top-secret engine scene, you can have your Revenge (no pun) with Ford or Chevrolet power. The car will use General Motors’ 631-horsepower V8 (as found in the Corvette ZR-1) as well as a 605-horsepower crate engine courtesy of Ford and Roush Industries.
Regardless of your engine choice, you can pick either a conventional 6-speed manual transmission or a 6-speed sequential paddle shift from Master Shift, and your supercar will have either a 3.7:1 rear end or a 3.5:1 unit, which company President and CEO Peter Collorafi says will propel the car to a top speed of 240 mph. Oh, and the car will run purely on unicorn dreams and be capable of space travel. OK, that last part wasn’t true (just our way of saying, “What?”). But is any of this?
The body is carbon fiber, and the doors, hood and trunk are made from aluminum. Despite that, the new supercar weighs a portly 3,500 pounds. The supercar does in fact feature Brembo carbon ceramic brakes. Those stoppers will be nestled behind massive 20-by-9-inch and 20-by-12-inch black chrome aluminum wheels, which are in turn wrapped with 255/35R20 and 305/35R20 rubber.
