The initial word is that the car is called Jota and will be a supercar that has a new direct-injection V12 engine stamping out at least 700 PS (515 kW / 690 bhp). Information coming in says that from standstill to 100km/h will transpire in around 3.0 seconds, while top speed kicks in at 370km/h (230 mph).

Sources say that the car weighs in at less than 1,500 kg, and the body monocell on the Jota will be similar to the McLaren MP4-12C. Design will be along the lines of the Reventon, with new scissor doors that will corkscrew out and up. Word on the pricing is that it will in the same range as the LP 640.
