Video: Jay Leno Reviews a Deronda Sports Car
In the latest episode of his show, Jay Leno reviewed a car most of us have never heard of before: a Deronda Sports Car. The model was developed by British manufacturer, Deronda, and was originally offered with an Audi-sourced engine, but this particular model received a few updates.
According to Jay, all these updates have transformed the Deronda Sports Car into a striped out Corvette. Without the extra body panels and all those unnecessary gizmos, we bet this is one disgustingly fast machine.
To find out just how fast this V-8 powered superlight is and whether Jay approves or not, check out the above video.
Hit the jump to learn a few more things on the standard Deronda Sports Car.
About the Deronda Sports Car
The standard Deronda Sports car is built on an aluminum spaceframe chassis and is powered by a 1.8-liter Audi engine. Deronda offers three different levels of power output: a relatively tame 200 ponies, a slightly more crazy 250 horse or an insane 300 horsepower.
The Audi powerplant mates up to a five-speed manual transaxle, which is also sourced from the Audi parts bin. With a total weight of just about 1,600 pounds, the Deronda will sprint from 0 to 60 mph in less than 4 seconds.
Yup, that sounds like fun to us!
