• Zoleco Sports Car

If you have never heard about Zoleco before reading this news, don’t worry, you are not the only one. We haven’t either, at least not before we received an email from them in our inbox. Zoleco is a new start up company which is creating the Zoleco sports car. The company, and the car, is a combination of the founder’s name (Zoltan Bod) and the cars main theme which is to be friendly to the environment... eco.

The new Zoleco "is combining the scientific approach with practicality and common sense in creating a means of personal transportation that addresses energy conservation through research and implementation of a variety of energy efficiency technologies."

Zoleco will be built using light weight chromoly tubing in a full perimeter space frame configuration including a full roll cage embracing the body structure. The car’s base engine is a 3 cylinder turbo charged gasoline engine mated to a 5 speed manual transmission.

Initial details suggest that with only 8.2 HP the car can maintain a top speed of 65mph and deliver an impressive 91.4 mpg. With 80 HP the car can hit a top speed of 145 mph, but Zoleco is also talking about a top speed of 200 mph.

The new car will be making its television debut on the Discovery Channels on Oct 17 at 8:00 PM, Pacific time.

Wow! Seriously, is really a sports car? I also noticed that it looks like no wheels. I am wondering if what will really be the engine specs of it and even the interior features of this one?

It’s more looks like a boat, for me! smiley Anyway, it is absolutely so unique on its platform and it seems that it doesn’t have a wheel. I’m also wondering if what will be the figure performance of this one.

Are you sure that this one is really a sports car? It more looks like a cocoon for me that in any moment the butterfly will come out! smiley Anyway, I can say that I am absolutely so amazed on its looks.

Well, even if Soleco is new, I am sure that this newest sports car will be on every car racer’s wish list. It is unique and different. It is like a shuttle with wheels being a king of the roads.
