Quantum GP700 from Australia packs 700 horsepower and weighs 700kg

If you are into lightweight stripped-down open drive vehicles like Ariel Atom or KTM X-Bow, then here’s something interesting for you all the way from Australia by Quantum Performance Vehicles.

The GP700 does not look like your typical street car, but nevertheless it is street legal and according to Quantum Performance Vehicles in addition to dominating the track, it is equally at home on the roads thanks to its low speed tuning and suspension balancing.

Powered by a 2.7-litre four-cylinder engine with twin superchargers producing 700 horsepower and 482 lb-ft of torque linked to a six-speed Holinger sequential gearbox, it is a real beast.

Weighing just 700 kg it has the same power-to-weight ratio as the Koenigsegg Agera One:1.

0-62mph takes just 2.6 seconds and a custom aluminium and carbon chassis delivers excellent mechanical grip allowing the GP700 to pull 1.9G’s in slow speed corners and maintain its supreme drivability from low through to ultra-high speeds.

At 174 mph it’ll theoretically drive upside down!

Pricing details haven not confirmed yet, but different sources claim it is expected to cost below the £450k mark.
