Joss Developments Limited from Australia has released additional specifications for the JP1 supercar.
Riding on a composite honeycomb sub-frame, the two-seat JP1 measures 4450mm long, 1860mm wide, and 1100mm high. It is decked in carbon fiber body work which produces 200 kg (441 lbs) of downforce at 241 km/h (150 mph).
Power is provided by a mid-mounted aluminum V8 engine with more than 500 hp (373 kW / 507 PS). It is connected to a six-speed manual transmission which allows the 940 kg (1,411 lb) car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in less than 3.0 seconds. When a driver keeps his foot planted, the JP1 will rocket through the quarter mile in under 11 seconds and hit an estimated top speed of 340 km/h (211 mph).
The company declined to release a launch date, but stated the JP1 will cost approximately $500,000 AUD (€345,555 / $455,875 USD).
