When designing the TKR, Barabus put drivability on a wide variety of road conditions high on the list of on the list of objectives. And, while the TKR would be at home on any racetrack, it is also a car that can be driven with pleasure on motorways, autobahns and back roads.

The car is to be made in Italy and the power plant is built in the United Kingdom. While the TKR is a true Italian supercar, the vehicle itself reflects a "best-in-practice" philosophy, where Barabus has incorporated superior components from around the globe in order to manufacture the best vehicle possible.

The Barabus TKR architecture begins with a full carbon fibre body and chassis. Suspension is fully independent unequal length "A" arms.

Common........even the Veyron does 0-60 mph in 2.5 secs.
& for that it needs a 1001hp produced by a 8L W16 engine Turbocharged FOUR times.......
How can this V8 Bi-Turbo producing 1005hp, do 60mph in 1.67secs??
The Veyron is a 4WD (More traction).......but this is a rear wheel drive.....when u step on the throttle @ 0 secs, the wheels Will definately spin, the car will skid n drift.......no car can do 60 mph in 1st gear....so 2nd gear (manual).....u think all thats gonna be done in 1.67 secs???
I DON’T THINK SO.....
If i have proof i would believe....

Give me videos!! Give proof! that car cant go 1.67 secs!??? It will flip or something.

mommas comin to kill u

That seems impossible to go 60mph in 1.67 because you drift and stay in the same place for a while. That would only be ture if the car was really heavy. What is the truth?

Give me videos I need to see it

theres no way this car can go 0-60 in 1.67.
i would like to see those tires last 10 seconds.

iya i really really really love you and the car so please give me that car for free ppplllleeaazzzzz

This car never does 0-60 in 1.67... so sort your heads out and tell everyone the truth.

Why not prove the amazing design and get it on top gear to show everyone what it is really made of?

Not much. so it can’t get much traction and probably will do 0-60 in 2-3 sec. instead of 1.6

what is the weight of the car?
