The Irmscher Roadster Turbo Sport 45 is a new model by the German tuner to celebrate its 45th anniversary. Featuring a massive power-to-weight ratio, this petite racer can hit 60 mph in less than 4 seconds.
Irmscher is among the first automakers to start preparations for the convertible season. The new Roadster Turbo Sport 45 has been built to pay tribute to the company’s 45th anniversary and will be limited to only 7 units.
The model features an aluminum-plastic body and has been developed on a solid steel tubular lattice frame. Under the hood, the model receives a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-pot that delivers a total of 265 horsepower and a peak torque of 295 pound-feet. With a total weight of just 1,598 pounds, the new Sport 45 will run from 0 to 60 mph in under 4 seconds.
The model is equipped with a waterproof soft top, five-star Revo rims and for the interior, high-quality leather offered in a color that matches the exterior look. A special "Sport 45" logo on the dashboard and a certificate both confirm that you are indeed driving a unique model.
We may be imagining things here, but this sure does look a lot like a tuned up Caterham 7 Roadsport or Superlight...
