The minds behind Tushek & Spigel seem to have a good grip on what an exotic sports car should be. The supercar startup introduced its first concept, the Renovatio T500 at Top Marques Monaco back in 2012. After that, there was a bit of radio silence, but some things are worth waiting for. Now the boys are back with new investors and a new plant, and are touting the Tushek TS600. Supercar startup Tushek was founded by Slovenian racing driver Aljoša Tushek a few years ago.
The Tushek TS600 was also revealed in Monaco, a fitting venue for the introduction of lavish goods. Tushek & Spigel is dedicated to developing lightweight speedsters that are not slacking in the appearance arena. While some may downplay the talents of a newcomer, there is certainly some praise to be awarded in many areas.
- Gleaning some basic knowledge from the Renovatio T500, the TS600 improves on aerodynamics and performance.
- She boasts a lightweight chassis comprised of carbon and titanium with a curb weight of approximately 2,470 pounds.
- Carbon ceramic brakes possess the ability to stop on a dime and also serve to keep the weight down. With all of the focus on weight and power, the center of gravity is ideal and offers an impressive ratio of 1 horse per 3.55 pounds. It may not be the perfect Koenigsegg One, but it is a great start.
- It is speculated that the engine will be a revamped version of the Audi-sourced 4.2-liter V8 from the Renovatio T500. It should produce 695 horses, bringing it quite close to the stunning beast that is the award-winning Lamborghini Aventador LP700.
There will be two versions of the Tushek TS600 produced, the Strada and a track-focused Pista. The Tushek TS600 Pista only produces an additional 50 horsepower, which may surpass the likes of the Aventador. There is no word on the pricing or the price difference between the two options. The initial production run is said to be just 60 units, half Strada and half Pista.
