It seems that the end of the week is dedicated to hypercars as besides the SSC Ultimate Aero XT, we've got news from Spain where the local automaker Tramontana is working on the XTR which will be the successor of the R model. This is going to be a two-seater, but the driver will be positioned in front of the passenger, and both of them will be enclosed in a glass bubble.

Behind them there will be a huge Mercedes-Benz-sourced V12 5.5-liter bi-turbo engine that will produce no less than 888 hp (662 kW / 900 PS) and a peak torque of 722 lb.-ft. (980 Nm). That entire horsepower will be sent to the rear wheels via an "ultra-rapid competition gearbox." With a curb weight of approximately 3,000 lbs (1,360 kg), it will need 3.6 seconds to do the 0-60 mph sprint, before hitting 214 mph (344 km/h).

The car will also receive several aerodynamic and chassis upgrades, while these renderings tell us that the hypercar will get an entirely new front end with different headlights and spoiler, along with a different a rear diffuser and a restyled spoiler.

The Tramontana XTR will have a starting price of $514,000 (420,000 Euros) and it is expected to come out towards the end of the year.
