There is a growing market for exclusive sports cars at the moment, and just
about everyone wants to have a go at it. The previously unknown Dutch company
Hansen has released first details about their upcoming GT-R track car, as well
as a milder GT version, intended for road use. They plan to release the GT-R this year,
with the GT following later.
The GT-R is powered by a 5-liter V10 engine, developing 500 bhp and 369 lb-ft. The power is sent to the rear 18-inch wheels through a manual six-speed transmission. The car is made from lightweight materials and weights only 2424 lbs. The suspension system features independent front and rear double wishbones with anti-roll springs & dampers, and the brakes include six-piston aluminum alloy calipers up front and a four-piston set-up in the back.
The most interesting thing about the Hansen GT is that it will not have any electronic aids, putting the driver in complete control over the car.
The price tag is expected to be set around $300,000.
