JOSS will present its Super Car, the first Australian... you know what

There are cars that have names that may not seem very creative, but at least they leave no doubts about what is their mission. This is the case for JOSS Super Car, the first Australian supercar. It is not only beautiful, but also incredibly mean.

First of all, although it is a not a small car (4.15 m long, 1.86 m wide and 1.05 m tall, with a wheelbase of 2.56 m), it is very light, with a weight of only 940 kg. This is due to the lightweight materials used in its construction, which are aluminium (both for the chassis and for the 6.8-litre engine) and carbon fibre (for the body). Considering the engine, produced exclusively for this car, generates 500 bhp at 5,750 rpm and 650 Nm at 2,800 rpm, its performance puts this car into the very exclusive club of supercars. And not only because of its name.

Accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h in this machine took only 3.7 s in its first test, but the final figure is expected to reach something around 3 s. Top speed is 320 km/h. At first. JOSS also expects it to get even better, to something over 340 km/h.

There will only be 25 units of this car every year, at a cost of around US$ 500,000. Since the first 15 units are already bought, anyone interested in the car will have to wait in line to puts hands on the steering wheel and the right foot down on the gas pedal.
