2005 was the year that Proto Motors revealed their first Spirra sports car, a very admirable sports car. Early 2007 Oullim Motors bought Proto Motors and upgraded the power train to a turbocharged and supercharged 2.7 liter V6 engine good for about 400 hp and called them the Spirra Turbo and Spirra S respectively. Last week at the 2008 Auto China motor show in Beijing the new Korean manufacturer presented the production version of the car.
The company also has a race version, the Spirra GT270 with 2.7 liter twin turbo engine producing around 600 hp, and a drag race version called the Spirra GT460 which uses both a turbo and supercharger to produce around 700 hp.
The Spirra is mid-engined and uses a carbon-fiber body covering a space-frame chassis. The Oullim Spirra is set to go on sale in Korea later this year for about USD 100,000. Oullim Motors hopes to build and sell 100 units this year and bump production up to 300 of the hand build sports cars by next year.
