This year’s Geneva Motor Show has played host to a number of world exclusive premieres from the automotive industry’s biggest names. It has also played host to a number of debuts from small, niche companies including a little firm called Engler.
Engler was conceived in Slovakia and the company has unveiled its F.F Superquad at the Palexpo center on Geneva. Not only is ‘Engler F.F Superquad’ yet another name you’ll have to add to your auto vocabulary, but the ‘car’ also happens to be unlike any other vehicle we’ve seen before.
As the name suggests, the F.F Superquad is a mix between a supercar and a quad bike. Consequently, there is no cabin and the ‘driver’ simply straddles the center of the car much like a quad bike or motorcycle. The only difference is that instead of a compact vehicle that can be easily flicked around through corners, the operator has to control a car-sized vehicle.
Engler claims that the F.F Superquad is powered by a 5.2-liter V10 engine, likely sourced from the Lamborghini Gallardo, Huracan, or Audi R8, that delivers 850 hp. The vehicle itself tips the scales at a mere 850 kg (1873 lbs), giving it a perfect 1:1 power-to-weight ratio.
The company has made some audacious claims about the vehicle’s performance. Apparently, it can reach 62 mph (100 km/h) in 2.5 seconds and achieve a Lamborghini Aventador-equalling top speed of 217 mph (350 km/h). That doesn’t seem very safe…
The company behind the F.F Superquad claims that customers will be able to personalize many of the vehicle’s components and have a number of different colors to choose from. No pricing details have been announced.
