After successfully building the world’s fastest street-legal supercar - the Maxximus G-Force - back in 2009, partners Marlon Kirby and David McMahan are back in action. However, this time, they have gone very green with the new Maxximus LNG 2000.
Not many details have been released for the LNG 2000 as of yet, but we do know that it is breaking the walls set up by petrol engines by running on compressed natural gas and liquid natural gas. That’s right supercar owners; no more getting ripped off at the pump! We still don’t know what kind of performance it will provide, but it is being pegged as the second generation G-Force which clobbered the 0-60mph sprint in 2.1 seconds. The G-Force was by no means green, though. It was powered by a 1,600-horsepower, 7.0-liter engine sourced from Chevrolet which boasted if additional performance times of 0-100 mph in 4.5 seconds and 0-100-0 mph in 8.8 seconds.
Development for the LNG 2000 is still ongoing, but the company was kind enough to reveal the first image of the "green" vehicle for us to ogle. They are also currently working on another model model - dubbed the Prodigy - which will come with 2,000 horsepower and a $1,000,000 price tag. Considering the G-Force costs $3,000,000, the Prodigy will actually be a steal! No pricing information for the LNG 2000 has been revealed as of yet.
Stay tuned! We’ll be following this development of the LNG 2000 closely!
UPDATE 02/13/12: Despite not knowing comprehensive information about the Maxximus LNG 2000, we do know enough to conclude that this is one insane supercar that packs an ungodly 1,600 horsepower. Recently, the folks over at Maxximus Technologies took the LNG 2000 out to stretch its legs and in fairness to the insane expectations set out on this supercar, it performed incredibly well in the drag strip, hitting 0-60 mph in just 1.9 seconds!
