If you’re wondering why this car looks familiar, the answer is very simple: because it is based on the K1 Attack Roadster unveiled by Oliver Ashley back in 2010. Ashley had his chance to bring Slovania on the super car map, but now Aljosa Tushek from Tushek Supercars has taken the K1 Attack and morphed it into the Renovatio T500, or as they call it "the ultimate supercar."

While the standard K1 Attack is powered by a 250 HP Honda Civic Type R 2.0 liter 4-cylinder engine, the Renovatio T500 is powered by an Audi RS4 sourced 4.2 liter V8 engine that delivers a total of 450 HP at 7900 rpm and a peak torque of 315 lb-ft at 3200 rpm. As a result, the car will sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.7 seconds and to 124 mph in 11.5 seconds. Top speed goes up to 192 mph.

The Tushek Renovation T500 will sit on a new set of 19" aluminum forged wheels with center locking and will come standard with a detachable storable hardtop, an adjustable carbon fiber rear wing, adjustable pedals and steering column, adjustable seats in length, carbon ceramic brakes, power steering, power brakes, and extra 4 point seatbelts for track use.

The Tushek Renovatio T500 will debut at the 2012 Top Marques Monaco Show which starts on April 19, 2012.

Easter Special: Easter Eggs of the Car World

Easter Special: Easter Eggs of the Car World

Have you found where these cars are hiding?

In a world that has more supercars and sports cars than you can keep track of, it’s pretty easy for those that don’t go mainstream to get lost. It’s sad when you think about it. Over the years, there have been some interesting concept and production cars that never got the attention they deserved. Take the Tushek Renovatio T500, for instance. Have you ever heard of it? I’m guessing you probably haven’t, but it was a remarkably beautiful car with distinct styling that should have made it a favorite among collectors.

These days, we’re blessed with every supercar manufacturer dropping a new model on a regular basis. In fact, we’re spoiled, when you think about it. And like any group of spoiled children, as soon as we get what we want, we immediately start asking for more. It’s not that the supercars we all know and love, like the Koenigsegg One:1, Bugatti Chiron, or the Pagani Huayra BC aren’t special, because they certainly are. They’re just well known, and even if you haven’t seen one in person, you’ve seen one on TV or Youtube.

So, in light of Easter this year, we’ve decided to look back at a few cars that are very much “Easter eggs” of the automotive world, and that’s if you can even find them at all. I’m talking about cars like the aforementioned Tushek Renovatio T500, or the Tramontana XTR. Some of these car’s never made it into production, while others were produced and fizzled away into automotive history. Either way, let’s take a look at a few of my favorites.

Slovenia has never had its very own true supercar, and despite Oliver Ashley’s best efforts to create the K1 Attack Roadster for the small European nation a few years back, no such car existed until Aljosa Tushek from Tushek Supercars showed up.

Using the K1 Attack as a donor car of sorts, Tushek Supercars redesigned the car inside and out with the largest change being the upgrade to the engine. Where the K1 Attack featured a tiny 2.0-liter 4-cylinder Honda Civic Type R sourced engine producing 250hp, the recently launched Renovatio T500 packs the same 4.2 liter V8 engine as the Audi RS4 and therefore delivers 450hp at 7,900 rpm and 315lb-ft of torque at just 3,200 rpm.

Tipping the scales at just over 2,200 pounds, the T500 can hit 60 mph in just 3.7 seconds, up a top speed of 192 mph. In the latest Autocar test, they took this lightweight supercar for a spin to see just how good the car really is.

To our surprise, the result seems to be quite good considering this is the very first car produced by Tushek. Furthermore, the test vehicle was only a prototype, but if Tushek aims to turn the T500 into the world’s greatest supercar, then it better be good straight from the get-go.

Sound interesting? Well, check out the video, but before you get out your checkbook, keep in mind that the T500 will cost over $450,000!
