Among the many irresistible classics showcased at Pebble Beach, there was one newcomer that really grabbed everyone’s attention. Called Laraki Motors Epitome Concept, this is a true beast that many of you have probably never heard of before. However, the boutique company that makes it is very confident that it will soon become quite famous.
Truth be told, any 2,800-pound supercar with 1,750 horsepower has the potential of becoming world famous. Yes, the numbers are correct, and they come from a magnificent vehicle with a breathtaking design. Carbon fiber body panels ensure its lightness, while the power comes from a huge 7.0-liter Chevy V8 engine with twin turbochargers.
One really cool feature of the powertrain is that it is connected to two fuel tanks. One of them holds 110 octane and it can be summoned at the simple touch of a button. This will change the car’s ECU map and the engine will get juice from both tanks, thus resulting in the dizzying 1,750-hp figure. When only the Regular tank is used, power is limited to 1,200 hp, which isn’t little either.
This beauty will reportedly sell for $2 million, and its makers intend to manufacture only nine units. The guys at Larakiare working on other future product plans as well, but they are probably waiting to see how the public will react to this first stunner of theirs. So what would your reaction be if you came face-to-face with the menacing Epitome Concept?
