Silvermine cars

Posted on by Simona  

In the past year, we’ve seen cars coming from nearly every corner of the globe and 2014 is kicking off with yet another performance car hailing from a part of the world we typically wouldn’t expect: Netherlands. Meet the Silvermine 11SR, which happens to be the first car to come from the Netherlands.

The 11SR was created from scratch by Frank van Rouendal — a marine engineer and machine constructor — who wanted to design his ideal track-day racer . In his imagination, this car needed to be a two-seat sports car, powered by a mid engine, with a very low weight and built from high-quality materials.

The Silvermine 11SR was built on an unique chassis that was specially developed just for this little racer, and it features an F1 -style safety cell for added safety. The first prototype tested by Silvermine is powered by a Subaru-sourced, 3.0-liter, six-cylinder engine with an output of 225 horsepower, but the final car will deliver up to 325 horsepower.
