Jalopnik has a great image gallery of the new Marussia B2 supercar, the fruits of recent Russian mobster tactic illegal weapons dealings oil wealth. Revealed at the Frankfurt Motor Show now underway, there aren’t many details to share at this time (other than it was penned by Nikolai Fomenko, of Top Gear Russia fame), but I dig how it sorta looks like the bastard lovechild of a Zonda raped by a Lambo Reventon, which was then molested by an electric hair clipper.
I’m gonna hold out for the Audi e-Tron , however, even if it doesn’t really exist. Yet. What is there not to like about an electric Audi R8 juiced up with nearly 3,320 lb-ft of torque (10x that of the original V8)? Simply retarded. According to Audi:
“Four motors – two each at the front and rear axles – drive the wheels…the two-seater accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (0 – 62.14 mph) in 4.8 seconds, and from 60 to 120 km/h (37.28 – 74.56 mph) in 4.1 seconds. The lithium-ion battery provides a truly useable energy content of 42.4 kilowatt hours to enable a range of approximately 248 kilometers.”
Not sure how I feel about Audi’s version of the 1000 Spoke Dayton rims, but the effect on the grill and intakes is nice…
