ISIS AM01 – Ugliest Sports Car Ever? – rpmGo.com

ISIS AM01

Most of the sports cars we talk about here on rpmGO are beautiful, but today we are going to make an exception. This ISIS AM01 has to be the ugliest car I’ve seen lately. However, all is not that bad with this car as it’s powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged boxer engine borrowed from a Subaru Impreza WRX STI. This 4-cylinder power plant produces 275 hp and has a peak torque of 258 lb.-ft (350 Nm). This power is transmitted to the rear wheels via the 5-speed manual gearbox.

It is the creation of a Dutch company called Isis Cars that is managed by Anton van Nunen and Max Alting Siberg. The car is actually based on another coachbuilt from Holland, the Saker. It has a curb weight of only 1,874 pounds (850 kg), and can do the 0-60 mph sprint in 4.2 seconds, before reaching a top speed of 162 mph (260 km/h).

The looks are awful; the engine is not that powerful, the gearbox is ordinary, so you would expect that the price tag is reasonable, right? Well, it isn’t. Priced at $174,000, you’d have to be pretty insane to spend that kind of money for this AM01 sports car, when there are plenty of more attractive, faster and affordable alternatives to choose from.

But wait, there’s more. Isis Cars is working on the AM02 model, which will have a 3.0-liter engine that will deliver 400 hp. Price? $203,000.
