A new supercar/hypercar maker has arrived on the scene and we will oblige them a hearing, of course.
Shayton (falcon in the Sioux language) is the name of this Slovenian brand by parent company Provoco. The model is called the Equilibrium and it promises to be up there with the best. Yes, the likes of Pagani and Lamborghini.
The Shayton Equilibrium was designed by Andrej Stanta and Dominik Cernelic and the intention was to create a perfect storm of a supercar. The Equilibrium will be made of a carbon-titanium chassis tacked onto a forged aluminum alloy suspension. Weight will also be kept down by means of the carbon-titanium wheels and carbon body panels. Total curb weight will be 1200 kg (2640 lbs).
The specs on this not-yet-built car are big and ambitious. Power will come from a V12 of unspecified displacement with an output of 1084 bhp (1099 PS / 808 kW) and 930 Nm (686 lb-ft) of torque. Transmission will be a sequential gearbox. The press release isn't specific on those two points beyond that.
But the performance numbers Shayton is happy to supply. 0 to 100 km/h in 3.1 seconds, to 200 km/h (124 mph) the sprint from a standing start takes 8.9 seconds. Top speed is over 400 km/h (249 mph).
Bremo carbo-ceramic brakes will help reign in those thousand plus horses while the aerodynamic design will put 750 kg of downforce on the car at 300 km/h (186 mph).
Weight-distribution will be 47/53, front/back. A carbon/titanium sport exhaust will be supplied by Akrapovic.
Those carbon-titanium wheels will come sized 9 x 20-inch at the front and 12,5 x 21 at the rear. Tires will be Pirelli Pzero 255/35/20 and 365/30/21 front and rear, respectively.
On the inside will be a finish in leather and Alcantara with trims in carbon fiber and brushed aluminum.
Shayton will build just 20 units a year of the Equilibrium plus a handful of special editions.
Price will be over €,1,000,000.
