Russia has started building its own 550hp sports car. Called Revolt, its produced by a Moscow-based company named E-Go on a Mitsubishi platform.

A new Russian revolution is fast approaching. Said revolution goes by the name of E-Go Revolt, E-Go being the name of the company that manufactures the Revolt, the Revolt being the sports car fully designed in Russia. E-Go is a new coach-building company that’s located in Moscow and they have already started producing the Revolt. Their car, the Revolt, is based on a Mitsubishi platform but unfortunately we aren’t too sure which platform at the moment. From its name you might expect an electronically-powered car, but alas, not.

Pursuing this dream with feverish motivation, E-Go has acquired the services of a 3.0-litre V6 engine, pushing its 550 hp through a set of twin turbos and paired to a 6-speed manual gearbox. The suspension is of active pneumatic form which is very modern as a concept. At the wheels E-Go runs on 19-inch alloys with tyres measuring 245/40/19 up front, and 325/30/19 at the rear.

In what may turn out to be quite an innovative yet very risky move, E-Go has placed all the Revolt’s electronic systems controls at the centre of the steering wheel, with touch screen monitors for control.
