A New Supercar – De Macross GT1
The automotive niche of supercars is getting bigger day by day as two days ago we’ve mentioned the Shayton Equilibrium and now we have news from Canada where another beast is under development. Dubbed De Macross GT1, it is the work of Jahong Hur and comes with a lot of exotic materials and some technology inspired from F1 cars.
It will feature F1-style Dynamic Suspension Spool Valve dampers that Multimatic developed for many of the teams in Formula One. The 4-way adjustable pieces have the ability to crop the car’s ride height by over an inch in order to allow for both a track and street set up.
The car will feature a mid-mounted V8 5.4-liter Roush Yates supercharged power unit that will develop about 800 ponies and 700 pound feet of torque. All this power will be sent to the rear wheels via a 6-speed manual gearbox. The company says that with these hardware specifications, the De Macross GT1 will hit 60 mph in 3.4 seconds and will do the quarter mile in 11.5 sec.
As far as the design is concerned, I can’t say that it is pretty or original. The car looks like a Ford GT40, with the exception of the headlights that remind me of the Ferrari F430. Plus, that paintwork is just horrible, along with those wheels that don’t really are suitable for a supercar or whatever the GT1 promises to be.
Unfortunately they didn’t reveal when will the car be available and what price tag it will wear, probably not affordable for common people.
