Inferno Is A 1,400 HP New Mexican Supercar

Forget about the Mastretta MXT, because something hotter came out of Mexico.

This is called the Inferno Exotic Car, it was led by Mexican engineers, built by Italian specialists and officially presented a few days ago, during the Expo Bancomer, an exhibition that specializes in high technology.

The Inferno has a “love it or loathe it” design that’s full of creases and hard lines. Other styling bits include a double-strip on the rear acting as taillights, a large rear wing that seems to be made from carbon fiber, five-tailpipe exhaust system and five-spoke wheelsy ADV.1 covering the small brake discs with red calipers. The exterior is finished in a silver-red two-tone color with black accents.

Its design work was carried by Italian chief designer Antonio Ferrarioli, who is behind a number of Lamborghini supercar components, including the Asterion, Veneno, Aventador SV, Gallardo Super Trofeo and Reventon Roadster.

The bodywork was constructed using a zinc-aluminum-silver alloy, known as “metal foam”, and the company behind it apparently owns a patent to the material, which is described as stretchable metal, being able to stretch up to 100 times its original size to absorb impacts. Its density is 4,300 kg/m3 while the density of steel is 7,600 km/m3.

The most interesting part of the model is found in the engine bay, where a V8 bi-turbo engine rests. The unit is capable of developing 1,400hp and 670lb-ft (908Nm) of torque, which is enough to allow the supercar to go from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in less than 3 seconds and up to a top speed of 395 km/h (245mph). Apart from these impressive numbers, the Inferno’s creators didn’t give out other specifics about the powertrain.

Whether this is a fully functional concept is not known at this point, but what we can tell you is that production of the Inferno Exotic Car should apparently begin in 2016.
