An Orange for Track-Day: Hayabusa-Powered Zolfe

Visitors at the Autosport International show in the UK earlier this month got their eyeballs flushed by a a new, hyper-orange track-day car: the Zolfe Orange. Powered by a 1300cc Suzuki Hayabusa motor, the 1300-lb Orange has a composite body built on a tubular spaceframe chassis. The Hayabusa mill, hooked to a six-speed manual, produces 175hp of juice — which, with all the lightness, offers up zero to 60mph times in the 4.5-second range and a top speed of 135mph. Oh wait, there's also a turbo option, which boosts horsepower to 350 and turns the little coupe into an orange pavement eater — zero to 60 in 3.5 seconds and a top speed of 150mph. The Orange starts at the equivalent of $44,653.29. Street legal? Uh huh.
