Bulleta Motors unveils their Lotus-based RF22

California-based Bulleta Motors has unveiled their upcoming RF22 sports car.

Named after Lockheed Martin's F-22 Raptor, the RF22 is based on the Lotus Evora and has unique composite - carbon fiber is optional - body that was created by Samir Sadikhov who has previously penned the Aston Martin DBC and Cadillac C-Ville concepts.

While the model is instantly recognizable as an Evora, it has been equipped with an aggressive front fascia with bi-xenon headlights and a front lip spoiler. The RF22 also has a stylish rear end with a prominent diffuser and a center-mounted dual exhaust system. Other highlights include a roof scoop, carbon ceramic brakes and 19-inch carbon fiber wheels with Michelin Super Sport tires.

Motivation will be provided by a supercharged 3.5-liter V6 engine that develops 505 bhp (376 kW) and 410 lb-ft (555 Nm) of torque. This should enable the 2,920 lb (1,363 kg) sports car to accelerate from 0-60 mph in just 3.6 seconds.

There's no word on how much the RF22 will cost but each buyer will receive a "custom made, individually numbered, Swiss mechanical chronograph time piece, matching the serial number of its companion car."
