Simbol Design reveals their Lavazza GTX-R V12

Article file under

Remember the K1 Attack revealed a few months ago? Here’s his non-related bigger brother: the Lavazza GTX-R built by Simbol Design. It’s not exactly a supercar that is worthy of the title yet, but at least it has the looks of one, even though the attempt to mirror the Ferrari Enzo fell incredibly short.

The Lavazza GTX-R is powered by a BMW sourced V12 engine and, as with its aesthetics, its performance figures still fall a little short than those of other current supercars. Both versions are powered by a 5.3 liter BMW sourced V12 engine, but the GTX develops 400hp while the GTX-R produces 620hp. Lucky for us, the Lavazza GTX-R will be the only one coming to our side of the pond. The GTX-R will sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 4.6 seconds which is not exactly a figure that is worthy of the supercar title considering that a lot of the supercars now are succeeding at getting these sprints down to the three seconds mark.

The Lavazza will be offered in both coupe and roadster versions and will be built in carbon kevlar. This will help the car get its weight down to about 2381 lbs. On the exterior, the GTX-R will get fixed front diverters and rear venturi intakes with adjustable side diverters, an adjustable rear wing, and a roof scoop.

The front of the car may look a little like a Pagani Zonda (or a Zonda on drugs), but the price tag shouldn’t as this car is definitely not fitting into the ranks of the Italian supercars of today. Of course, if you wanted to ride around in a supercar without having to pay the grandiose supercar price, then this knockoff should appease quite nicely.
