    Powering the Laraki Epitome is a heavily revised version of Chevrolet’s 7.0 litre V8. All the engine internals have been upgraded, and a couple of turbochargers bolted on for good measure. Lakari say that the engine is good for 1,200 horsepower on regular gasoline. But that’s not the end of the story. It has two gas tanks. One for normal pump gas, the other for 110 octane fuel. At the flick of a switch the Epitome will start to consume a combination of the two fuels, while at the same time the ECU map changes to make the most of the more potent blend. When using the higher octane fuel the Epitome’s engine produces a massive 1,750 horsepower.

    Laraki say they only plan on building nine examples of the Epitome, each costing $2 million. But as this is the third time the company has tried to get a supercar into production, don’t start writing those checks just yet.

    Power: 1200 HP - 1750 HP

    The Aston Martin One-77 meets Transformers. I feel bad for mentioning Aston here in relation to this horrendous machine.

    Why is the steering wheel melting? Nice figures but it is seriously and horribly over-designed.

    wasn't this on Top Gear a few years back and they laughed at the "we will not stop until this is produced" bit at the end of the spec sheet?

    And it's sad that the duplicate thread got more votes than the original.
