The power comes from the Volkswagen borrowed 5.2 litre V 10 engine mounted onto a modular Carbon Fibre cum Aluminum chassis with complete Carbon Fibre bodywork, which pushes the car to a top speed of 205+ mph, cracking the tonne in a mere 3.2 seconds. That’s fighting waters with the Porsches and the Ferraris!

Customers will have an option to customise it according to their own needs- anyways the rich are spoilt for choice! The full unveiling of the exotica will be done during the Geneva Motorshow.
