We again missed the Barcelona motor show due to a mixup between our trophy wives and the Spanish embassy, which wasn't anything a few hundred thousand 10-year Spanish government bonds couldn't fix. As such, we missed eyeballing Spanish motorsports firm Sunred's prototypical GT1-class racer — the SR08 — in the flesh. It's powered by a V10 producing 500 hp, with zero to 62 mph (100 km/h) taking only 3.5 seconds. Estimated top speed is 186 mph. It's a good time to be one of the Spanish Bourbon royals; the SR08 is going into production next year. A run of 10 will be built to satisfy FIA homologation rules. [Grazie to Stefano for the tip.]
