South Korean company Oullim Motors has announced plans to offer an electric version of the Spirra in Europe.

The handmade Spirra sports car was originally introduced in South Korea back in 2005 and upgraded at the beginning of 2007 when Oullim Motors took over. At home the model is offered with a Hyundai-sourced V6 2.7-liter engine in four states of tune: 175 PS & 245 Nm, 330 PS & 471 Nm, 420 PS & 490 Nm and 500 PS & 539 Nm. In the most powerful configuration, 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) takes 3.5 seconds and tops out at 193 mph (310 km/h).

Now, Oullim Motors is working on an electric version which will be sold in Europe. Unlike the KDM-spec Spirra which has a rear-wheel drive layout, the Euro-spec model will adopt an AWD system and will offer just about the same performance levels as the range-topping conventional-powered model.

The design will be slightly altered for the Euro version which will be unveiled next March at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show with a steep price tag of 200,000 EUR. Production of the model will be conducted by startup company Spirra Europe from Friesland, The Netherlands.
