Laraki, the eponymous pet project of the yachting industry’s Abdesslam Laraki, is a true super car built up on the chassis of a C6 Corvette. Those aggressively styled body panels have been crafted entirely of carbon fiber, helping to bring the curb weight of the car down to around 2,800 pounds. How much for all this power and carbon work? …. Asking price is a cool $2,000,000 !
Of course the most impressive part of this concept car is the 7.0-liter Chevy V8 has been given all new internals and hooked up to a pair of identical turbochargers. With that rig, the company spokesperson tells us the Epitome is good for 1,200 horsepower on pump gas. But wait, there’s more. The Laraki actually has two gas tanks with one chamber meant for Regular and another intending to hold 110 octane. At the touch of a button, the Epitome will change its ECU map, allowing it to burn gas from both tanks, and raising the output to a nearly unbelievable 1,750 hp.
