Innotech Aspiron: Czech-Built Lightweight Track Monster
One may think that with makes like Pagani, Koenigsegg, KTM, and many more, the market for extremely limited-production supercars would be satiated. A Czech Republic-based company apparently believes otherwise, as it's just announced the production of a track-ready racecar, with a curb weight of just 1,680 pounds and output capable of over 1,000-horsepower. The Innotech Aspiron is a two-seat, open-air track machine. Offered with one of three Chevrolet Corvette engines, including the LS3, LS7, and LS9 from the range-topping Corvette ZR1. When equipped with the latter, the Aspiron puts out 800 horsepower, but if that's not adequate output, Innotech offers a tuned version of the LS9 which is capable of 1,000 horsepower, running on ethanol fuel. It should be repeated that this vehicle is a scant 1,680 lbs (762 kg).
According to Innotech (which should not be confused with the fictional "Initech," from the film Office Space), the Aspiron was conceived with Porsche and Ferrari customers who want a more hardcore driving experience. The base price of the 500-horsepower ‘entry-level’ model is $149,000, and considered a bargain compared to the typical price of a Ferrari or an upper-level 911.
The world will get its first live look at the Innotech Aspiron July 12 at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. We’ll be sure to bring you any videos of this wild machine in action.
