Swedish Firm Prepares New "Baby" Supercar

A new Swedish supercar? Yes, please. It's called the Quercianella, after the hometown of famed Italian car and engine builder Giotto Bizzarrini, whose work provided inspiration for the small, lightweight sled. Founder Clas M ller started with a prototype, the P1, which led to the production model set to be introduced later in 2006. It's powered by a high-revving, 2.4-liter V8 producing between 380hp and 525 hp (at 10,500 rpm) linked to a six-speed transaxle — pushing a carbon fiber semi monocoque structure with steel subframes and composite crash structures, and carbon fiber body panels. All of that adds up to a 1,157-lb mini supercar the company says will go from zero to 62 in 3.0 seconds and hit a top speed of 186 mph.
