With all that open land, and a possibly bigger love for V8s than even the U.S., its surprising that it took the Aussies this long to get back in the business of making home-grown supercars. Bolwell first made the Nagari sports cars in the late 60s and early 70s, and now its back. Australia’s domestic sport car will go on sale at a price of $198,000 AUD (about $130,000 U.S.) The Nagari is powered by a mid-mounted Toyota-sourced 3.5-liter 24-valve quad-cam V6 engine that delivers 295 hp and about 250 lb-ft. of torque.

The features list is pretty long for the Nagari. It comes with a carbon fiber composite body, 19-inch alloy composite wheels, ABS brakes, an underbody aero kit (front and rear), sports exhaust, UV-protected windscreen, Recaro seats (with Nagari emblem), leather trim, a Momo steering wheel, remote central locking, cruise control, air-conditioning, electric windows/mirrors, height- and reach-adjustable steering, door sill scuff plates, and a Polaris GPS stereo comprising sat-nav, rear-view camera, DVD/CD audio system.

Although the regular version of the Nagari has not actually hit the streets yet, Bolwell is already working on variations. As reported back in September, there is already an electric-powered sportscar in the works.
