Mexican startup supercar manufacturer Inferno has engineered a vehicle that boasts 1,400 brake horsepower dubbed as the Exotic Car. The car is said to have a voluptuous look and inspired by Lamborghini designer Antonio Ferraioli.
Mexico's fast car industry is kicking up. In the not-so-distant past, the country boasted the Mastretta MXT, a sports car with international recognition. A couple of years after that, the country's fast car industry doubled as the Vuhl 05 was unveiled by the Echeverria brothers. At present, a third Mexican automobile manufacturer enters the supercar industry known as Inferno.
Startup Inferno announced its first supercar model dubbed as Exotic Car at a recent Expo Bancomer tech event. The car is like a life-sized version of a Hot Wheels toy car and boasts top speeds of up to 245 miles per hour.
Other car specifications include a twin turbo V8 engine with 1,400 brake horsepower and 670 of torque. With the numbers from the torque and the bhp, Inferno states that the Exotic Car can go from zero to 62 miles per hour in less than three seconds. On top of that, it has top speeds of up to 245 miles per hour.
Car designer Antonio Ferraioli is said to be the mastermind behind Inferno's Exotic Car exterior. He is also the man behind Lamborghini's specially designed components. The slashy and futuristic design of the car would sure bring smiles to kids as it looks like a life-sized Hot Wheels toy collectible. However, adults might find the car's styling a bit exaggerated.
The car's exterior is made up of metal foam, a revolutionary metal hybrid that is the outcome of mixing zinc, aluminum and silver alloys. Not only the metal foam is as strong as an armor but it is also stretchable. It can stretch up to 100 times from its original size. The foam armor also allows impact absorption without denting the physical properties of the car's exterior. In other words, it is indestructible.
