O7 Spyder into production
When the K.O7 Spyder was presented at the Geneva Motor Show, it was looked as one of those great raw cars that was more of a design study than a real car. But that’s all about to change now that the company has announced that starting November 1st it will take orders for the car.
The spartan light weight car is constructed in limited production with aerospace dry carbon, stamped aluminum panels, milled alloy pieces with almost no paint. It will be powered by the Toyota 2.0-liter engine that also is used in Lotus’ Elise and Exige. It is rumored to make between 200 and 240 hp in this car.
The car is trying to create a precision image by being assembled by craftsmen in Ichinoseki, Japan, where samurai general Yoshitune lived and died 800 years ago.
