Minerva J.M. Brabazon supercar from Belgium announced

Belgian luxury automobile Minerva produced cars from 1902 until 1938 and became defunct in 1956. Now the company is planning a comeback with a supercar called J.M. Brabazon, which is named after a British racing driver.

The J.M. Brabazon features a carbon Kevlar body and carbon fibre monocoque chassis.

The car’s styling is quite interesting resembling a bit of Audi R8 and Porsche 918.

Power comes from a twin-turbo V12 engine that works together with two electric motors that power the front wheels. The car also has a sequential transmission, a limited slip differential, regenerative brakes and an intelligent drive controller offering five different driving modes: economy, normal, sport, race and safe.

Top speed is reportedly in excess of 248 mph (400 km/h).

Minerva is also name of a Roman goddess of wisdom and sponsor of arts, trade, and defense. Lets hope the company has enough wisdom to take this new supercar from a virtual world into production.
