RSC Predator GT

The RSC Predator GT is the updated version of the Raptor GT, a car that got some heavy criticism due to the fact that it looked a lot like the Ferrari 599XX. The company ditched that styling and opted for a new one that it too is similar with an Italian supercar, this time something coming from Lamborghini.

Under the hood it will have the same engine, which is a 4-rotor Wankel unit, based on Mazda’s 13B MSP, producing 1184 hp (1,200 PS / 883 kW). This very powerful engine will be mated to an 8-speed sequential gearbox. With a curb weight of only 2,425 lb (1,100 kg), the RSC Predator GT will be able to do the 0-62 mph sprint in less than three seconds.

Unfortunately we don’t know when the car will enter production phase. They were supposed to present a prototype in late 2010, but since that didn’t happen, we probably won’t be seeing a production version this year. But this project does look promising though…

I’m really looking forward for a car that could take down the all-mighty Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, but I guess we’ll have to wait…

Dartz Prombron Nagel

Imagine this: you just bought yourself a brand new yacht but you don’t have a car powerful enough to pull it. Well, your problems will soon come to an end as Dartz Prombron, a specialty Russian marquee, teamed up with Gray Design for this Dartz Prombron Nagel, which is an armored sportback that was developed for hauling yachts.

How is this thing capable of pulling a yacht? Easy, if we look at its engine that produces a whopping 2000 hp (1471 kW). It can easily tow a yacht that has a curb weight of up to five tones, measuring 15 meters in length. Also, it can hit a top speed of 155 mph (250 km/h).

The car is named after Andrey Nagel who won the 1911 Monte Carlo Rally, along with his co-driver Vadim Mikhailoff, in a C24/55 Monaco RussoBalt. RussoBalt is the company from where Dartz Prombron derives from.

Even though it might hurt, here are some photos of the first known crashed Nissan GT-R. Apparently, the incident took place in Hong Kong and the brand new GT-R looks pretty banged up. Probably the dude driving that thing wasn’t really aware of what 480 hp are really capable of. Anyway, we feel really bad for the car.
