Veno Supercar from Poland or Simply Put, Lamborghini Reventon Replica

| |

Veno Automotive is a new car company from Poland controlled by the UK-based private equity fund Heros Capital. In spite of being a newbie, the Polish firm has revealed an ambitious plan to build a limited production supercar that has yet to be named. We’ll simply call it the Reventon Replica as despite Veno’s ramblings about a unique design inspired from jet fighters, it doesn’t take a car guru to see that it’s a total Lamborghini knock off.

According to Veno Automotive, the supercar will compete against the best of the best including Ferrari, Lamborghini, Aston Martin, Koenigsegg, Ascari and Pagani. And how do they intend to that – apart from forging the Reventon’s design that is? First of all, the Polish firm says that it has developed a high-tech chassis capable of handling over… 1,000 HP.

Moreover, the Polish supercar that will be available in coupe and roadster versions will also feature a carbon fiber body parts and brake discs along with an array of gadgets like a night vision camera with pedestrian detection, onboard computer with internet access and doors that open with the touch of a button. Power will come from three versions of the Audi’s 4.2-liter V8 engine developing 350, 450 and 700 HP.

Vento supports that in 2009 it will also offer the ability to choose from an array of Corvette C6 engines including the Z1’s LS9 6.2-liter supercharged V8 (did anyone ask GM?). And since it’s all talk, allow us to inform you that Vento has also begun research on an electric-powered version of the supercar equipped the latest generation batteries. The Polish firm says that it plans to hand build a total of 50 examples (up to 10 - 12 units a year). As they say, a little day-dreaming never hurt anyone – that is unless Lamborghini's execs take a look at these designs…

Thanks for the tip Robert!
