Coming out of Mexico is a new hypercar called Inferno. As the website for the car describes, this car was created by “entrepreneurs, scientists, engineers” and international brands from countries like Italy, Mexico and the United States. One person that played an important step in creating Inferno was Antonio Ferraioli, an automotive engineer that has collaborated at Lamborghini, and is currently employed by Lotus Cars.
Being designated as a hypercar on their website, the car is stated as producing 1,400 hp and 670 lb-ft of torque. According to the Facebook page México Top Spott, it will be powered by a turbocharged V8 engine. Wondering about performance? The creators note a 0-60 mph time of less than 3 seconds and a top speed of 245 mph. Could this pit the Inferno against cars like the new Bugatti or Koenigsegg? Only time will tell.
One main reason as to why this car would be able to achieve such speeds is its light weight, thanks to the use of what they are calling “metal foam.” This material is comprised of elements such as zinc, silver and aluminum, and it provides strength that is comparable “with that of a commercial armored vehicle, but with a big weight difference,” their website states.
As far as actually production goes, there is no official word as of yet, but stay with us to learn more as information is released.
