If you thought that Hyundai was the only automaker from Korea capable of stealing sales from the competition with models like the Genesis Sedan and upcoming Equus then think again, because the small coachbuilder from South Korea, Proto Motors has been building the Spirra S sports car since last year and from the looks of things the little super car that could is doing just fine. Originaly intended to offer outstanding performance on a budget, the original $100,000 Spirra was powered by a 4.6 Liter DOHC 32 valve V8 engine from a mid 1990s Ford Mustang Cobra with a maximum output of 320 HP and 312 lb-ft of torque. This allowed the Korean super car to go from 0 to 60 MPH in under 4.3 seconds and reach a top speed of over 200 MPH.
In 2008 the Spirra S was introduced with 400 HP in the form of a 2.7 Liter supercharged V6. Despite the newfound power, the Proto Spirra was only able to go from 0 to 60 MPH in just 4.8 seconds and reach a top speed of 190 MPH. So later on that year the automaker released the Spirra Turbo, priced at a slightly higher $129,000 the blower was swapped out for a hairdryer and the same 2.7 Liter V6 now makes 500 HP. In true super car fashion the Spirra is outfitted with luxuries like a full premium leather interior, Brembo brakes, Recaro bucket seats a MOMO steering wheel and even wireless broadband. The Spirra Turbo can go from 0 to 60 MPH in just 3.8 seconds and allow the 2,205 lb super car to go as fast as 217 MPH depending on trim level.
