Weber F1 (FasterOne) supercar with 1184bhp revealed

Weber Sportscars from Switzerland has unveiled the production version of the F1 (FasterOne) supercar. Weber Sportscars claims the F1 is the world’s fastest and lightest street legal four wheel drive supersports car ever, built by engineers coming from the former BMW and Sauber Petronas Formula 1 team.

Power comes from a 1184bhp 5.6-litre twin-turbo V10 with 1250 Nm of torque at 4200 rpm linked to an in-house all-wheel drive system and a 6-speed, semi-automated sequential gearbox with steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters.

0-62mph comes in less than 2.5 seconds, 0-186mph in just 16.2 seconds, while the top speed is more than 248mph (400 km/h).

The F1 features a full carbon fibre chassis and a monocoque body. Other highlights include Automatic launch control, active all-wheel drive systems, and an adaptive hydraulik wing, which works also for breaking, deploying into fully vertical position in just 50 milliseconds.

The F1 is 4500mm in length, 2040mm in width, 1150mm in hight and weighs 1250kg.

Weber has also produced several components for the KERS (Kinetic Energy Recovery System) which is used in Formula One and soon this technology will also be used on another variant of the Weber F1 supercar, which will have more than 1600bhp.

Production starts next month and pricing is available upon request.
