2015 Genty Akylone
The Genty Akylone is the first vehicle producted by Genty Automobile, a small venture specialized in the design and conception of high-performance automobiles. Although not yet available to the public, the Akylone project promises to deliver a potent, track-ready supercar that will rival state-of-the-art offerings from iconic brands such as Ferrari and Bugatti.
Born from the will to create a state-of-the-art supercar devoted to the principles of "driving pleasure, high power and weight reduced to the minimum," the Akylone is said to become reality in a few years and Genty is burning the midnight oil to make it happen.
Two years after Genty Automobile introduced the Akylone in virtual form, the France-based start-up company has revealed an updated version of the supercar with even more efficacious performance figures. However, the vehicle is not yet ready to go into production as Genty still has to raise funds to fuel its ambitious project.

A new supercar was recently revealed Genty Automobile and it true to its boastful teasers, the car, called the Akylone, is promising a whole lot of performance capabilities.
Whether it lives up to its promise or not is still a matter of conjecture.
Genty Automobile is an independent French design company that seeks to produce high performance vehicles that go back to the basics of optimum power encased in a lightweight design. Their first offering is the Akylone, a supercar Genty is claiming to be a serious threat in the industry’s uber-competitive "supercar arms-race".
Despite being officially revealed, the Akylone appears to still be far from a finished product, which is a real bummer considering that we were expecting much more than just CAD renderings.
Nevertheless, new supercars are always worth their time on these pages, and it’s going to be very interesting how Genty follows up their official unveiling of the Akylone. Hopefully, we’ll get to see a live one up close real soon.
