Ascari KZ1-R

From Ascari press: Unveiled at the 2008 Goodwood Festival of Speed, the Ascari KZ1R is the latest and most exciting Ascari production car to date. Essentially a road-going version of the KZ1-R GT3 race car, the car’s 520BHP takes it from 0-60mph in an unofficial 3.0secs and up to an unlimited maximum speed of 200mph.

Its 5.0-litre naturally aspirated engine drives the back wheels via a 6-speed manual gearbox, with enhanced performance and handling derived from the car’s featherweight carbon-fibre monocoque and improved aerodynamics.

Despite the inclusion of a luxurious leather interior, soundproofing, remote central locking, electric windows and climate control, the car’s unloaded weight is a mere 1350kg.
