Performance should be very impressive

A company called Innotech has unveiled a car built specifically to destroy race tracks called the Aspiron. The car will be unveiled at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in a few weeks and the car is designed specifically to appeal to track day enthusiasts. The vehicle will start at $149,000.

The car has a very angular nose that looks a lot like a Radical and features a large rear wing for downforce. The car has little interior and no roof featuring six-point harnesses and a digital instrument cluster. The car will be powered by various GM V-8 engines including a 6.2-liter LS9.

That LS9 engine can be tuned for 800 hp. The company will also offer a version powered by ethanol able to produce 1000 hp. All engines use a six speed manual transmission and a limited slip differential. The entry-level $149,000 version has 500 hp.

Oct 8 2014 4:03pm CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Car Buying, Classics, Convertible, Performance, Videos, Chevrolet A few years back, I was catching up with my childhood friend Adam, who told me he had stumbled upon his late father's tow truck in the used-car listings.
