Meet the Inferno. A Mexican supercar set to be built in Italy, unless we are dealing once again with a case of vaporware.

Meet the Inferno. A Mexican supercar set to be built in Italy, unless we are dealing once again with a case of vaporware.

A press release is not available right now, but reading through the captions on the pics posted on Facebook we managed to find out it has been in development for seven years. In charge of styling was senior automotive designer Antonio Ferraioli and he apparently worked on the Lamborghini Asterion, Veneno Coupe & Roadster, Aventador SV, and Reventon Roadster.

Getting back to the car at hand, the GTA-like design is overly busy and makes the Veneno look like it’s actually quite tamed. The vehicle’s construction will consist of a mixture of zinc, aluminum, and silver to create a metal foam. This “exclusive material” is said to offer a level of security compared to an armored vehicle while being substantially lighter.

As for technical specifications, the Inferno will apparently have 1,400 bhp (1,044 kW) and 670 Nm (495 lb-ft) of torque coming from an unknown bi-turbo V8 engine. The immense power is expected to enable the supercar hit 60 mph (96 km/h) in less than 3 seconds before topping out at more than 245 mph (395 km/h).

A showcar was exhibited recently at an event in Mexico, but until we’ll see a running concept, we will just put this in the drawer labeled “vaporware.” Even if somehow it will eventually hit the assembly line, the odd styling in the same vein as the Mitsuoka Orochi will be a major downside.
