John Misumi started off his career with a dream similar to the millions of car fanatics in the world: To build his very own supercar. Ten years and $2 million later, Misumi is finally ready to unveil his SZR supercar, except there’s only one production unit to account for all that time and money. One. What started off as a mission to create an "American muscle car for the next millennium" has been strung out into a long and tedious journey leading to one unit and hopes for a brighter future.
The Vision SRZ was originally called the K/2 when it was conceived in 1997. Then, in 2005, Misumi overhauled the K/2 with modified body panels to incorporate a longer wheelbase, wider greenhouse, and other changes present on the current SZR. The new model is built on an aluminum chassis featuring a carbon fiber body.
The Vision SZR was originally tested with a 6.2 L V8 engine producing 630 HP, but a 6.0 liter V12 with 700 HP will be joining the fold sometime in the near future. The two engines will be mated to either a six-speed manual or an electronically-controlled dual-clutch automatic.
It’s taken a lot of time and money to make his dream a reality, but Misumi is now ready to see his hard work come to fruition.
