Dimitris Korres may not be a famous name in the auto industry these days, but give it some time and he just might be more than that. The Greek architect and inventor is about ready to showcase his first venture into the auto industry.
The Korres Project 4.
If you’re wondering what that is, the Project 4 is a supercar and a pretty impressive one at that.
The full details about the Project 4 will be unveiled soon in Greece, but there’s already a steady amount of information that’s been disclosed to the public. Chief among them is the powertrain, which takes the form of a 7.0-liter naturally aspirated engine that produces an impressive 505 horsepower, allowing it to hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.8 seconds with a top speed of 186 mph.
Translated in any language, those numbers are impressive across the board.
Another important bit of information about the Project 4 is its dimensions.
It’s 3,920 mm (154.3 inches) long, 1,960 mm (77.2 inches) wide, and 1,250 mm (49.2 inches) tall with a wheelbase of 2,560 mm (100.8 inches). Taken all together, the Project 4 weighs 1,600 kg (3,527 pounds).
Be sure to check back here in the coming days. We’ll have the full details of the Korres Project 4 as soon as it makes its public debut.

Mexico is becoming a hotbed for enterprising businesses looking to build sports cars these days. One of these cars is called the SST-77.
It comes from the mind of Mexican businessman, Miguel Jimenez, who wants to build a re-imagined Alpine that was designed along the same veins of the original Alpine A110 . The looks of the renderings seem to suggest as such, particularly the sweptback headlights, circular fog lights and those wide-open air intakes.
No performance numbers have been given, but the car is expected to be made using some lightweight materials, including fiberglass, Kevlar and carbon fiber.
