It seems the supercar world is expanding every day, and the Pagani Zonda better watch out, as this new supercar aims to match the Zonda in performance and price. It’s a an admirable goal to attain; if they can pull it off. The new supercar comes from Canadian based company, De Macross Motors Corp (DMMC), and is called the GT1. The De Macross GT1 was developed in cooperation to component manufacturer Multimatic.
Although we are all used to seeing supercars with the usual GM-sourced V8 engine, the GT1 will be featuring a mid-mounted supercharged 5.4-liter V8 engine sourced from a little American company named Roush Yates Racing Engines (they also create engines for Ford’s Nascar vehicles). This project is mostly funded by Korean businessman Jahong Hur, who seems to have enough money to dabble in projects like this without fear of his bank account running low.
The GT1 will be built on a chassis made from carbon fiber and aluminum. The supercar also benefits from Multimatic’s F1 dampers and the inboard Multimatic Dynamic Suspension Spooling Valve.
The first full-scale De Macross GT1 is set to be completed in November 2010 with the first orders being taken in 2011. Production will be limited to 200 units.
