Sportec has announced plans to introduce an upgraded SPR1 M at the Salon Privé Motor Show in London.

Dubbed the SPR1R, the car features composite (carbon / Kevlar) body panels, a flat carbon fiber under floor, an active suspension, carbon ceramic brakes, and a roll cage. While this is all standard on the SPR1 M, the SPR1R weighs 50 kilograms (110 pounds) less and has an adjustable traction control system (which doubles as a data logger and lap timer).

Under the hood, the bi-turbo 3.6-liter engine continues to produce 858 PS (631 kW / 846 hp) and 642 lb-ft (869 Nm) of torque. It enables the car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.0 seconds, 0-200 km/h (124 mph) in 8.6 seconds, and 0-300 km/h (186 mph) in 18.9 seconds. If you keep your foot planted, the SPR1R will eventually exceed 236 mph (380 km/h).
