Keating Bolt supercar prototype revealed

Keating Bolt is a new British supercar capable of speeds of up to 300 mph. Designed by University of Bolton graduate, Anthony Keating it was unveiled yesterday at the University of Bolton’s Backstage Academy.

Details are limited, but the exterior design is quite generic and nothing to really be amazed about. According to Anthony Keating, there are some XJ220 influences in the car, which is the car where his passion for all things automotive came from.

In case the production model gets a green light it will have a carbon/Kevlar body and an aluminum space frame, good for a projected weight of 990-1200kg.

Power comes from a GM-sourced 7.0-litre LS7 V8 engine that produces approximately 640bhp. A more powerful 800bhp variant will reportedly go from 0-60mph in two seconds.

Keating also plans to set a world speed record for a production car by using a highly tuned twin-turbo variant with that can exceed 340 mph (547 km/h).

Pricing and actual production details are limited, but the 800bhp version will reportedly cost £750,000.
