Wikispeed has just unveiled their new SGT01 at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. It is envisioned as a futuristic four-seater that will cost $20,000.
If you're rich and love investing in risky projects, Wikispeed wants to hear from you as the automotive startup has just unveiled their new SGT01 and is looking for backers to get the car into mass production.
While we certainly have our doubts, the 1,300 lb (590 kg) vehicle is envisioned as a futuristic four-seater with an extruded aluminum chassis and a carbon fiber body.
Powertain details remain mysterious, but the car reportedly uses a mid-mounted 1.8-liter four-cylinder Honda engine and a five-speed automatic. This theoretically allows the car to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 5.5 seconds, hit a top speed of 149 mph (240 km/h), and return 114 mpg highway.
If you're feeling lucky, you can pre-order one for $28,800 but the price is expected to drop to $20,000 when (or if) mass production ensues.
