The Iconic GTR tips the scales, if you could call it that, at 2,200 pounds. Engine is a whirlwind of over 800 bhp, with fine jewellery-like interior detail. Iron fist in a velvet glove? Sounds like it.

Iconic, the all-American exclusive super car maker, implies it has gone to the future and seen what a proper sports car should look, drive, and feel like. The company is as concerned about its GTR’s catwalk looks as it is about its bravado in the engine department.

The latter department offers, through its 6.9-litre aluminium V8, a whopping 800 bhp/ 597kW at least, in a car pounding the scales at a mere estimated 2,200 pounds/ 998kg curb weight. According to our estimates, such stats give a 0 - 62 mph sprint of under 2 seconds! Iconic says over 200 mph is possible down a quiet freeway some place like the Pacific, outback, karoo or autobahn. Sounds manic? You betcha! And we like. Very much we do!

Such is the attention to detail Iconic has put into the GTR that dashboard finishings like switches are said to be of jewellery-like finesse. The bling you see in these interior pics is stainless steel, not some lowly brushed aluminium made at a backyard factory.

We aren’t too sure what will become of the GTR, if it is indeed to be made, since 18 of its patent applications are pending in the US of A. But the mere idea of this thing, the dream alone puts anticipatory smiles on our faces. Production is to be limited to 100, and therefore pricing will probably be just as picky.
