Gillet Automobiles has unveiled the new Vertigo .5 Spirit sports car. The new model is described by the company "pleasure of driving sensations in a work of art object." And judging by the look of the car we have to admit, the car looks quite impressive.

Built on a carbon-fiber chassis the car weight only 950 kilos. Under the hood there is a Maserati sourced 4,2 liter V8 engine that delivers an impressive 420hp. The engine is mated to a 6-speed Sequential gearbox. However, Gillet did not revealed any performance numbers just yet. But stay tuned! The car sits on 19" wheels.

The new Vertigo .5 Spirit is a 100% customizable car. Upon command, each element is discussed, studied with the client and then decided. This will help you create the Vertigo you like, in both colors and interior treatments. Gillet did not announced the price for their new model, but they did promised it will be "the most accessible of Supercars."

I like the front and rear, not sure how I feel about the side.

That car is about 1,000 lighter than most of other super cars!

I had the exact same thought when I first saw the picture. I was expecting a V20. What is the rest of that gigantic compartment for?
