Based in the Czech Republic, Innotech has revealed its Aspiron race car, weighing in at 1,680 pounds with the potential of having 1,000 horsepower.

The Aspiron can be had with a variety of motors plucked from a Chevrolet Corvette, with the range varying from an LS3, LS7, or the LS9 from the Corvette ZR1 which Innotech can tune to deliver 800 horsepower. But those looking for even more, Innotech will offer a 1,0000-horsepower package but those racers will have to run ethanol rather than standard gasoline. The entry-level Aspiron model pumps out 500 horsepower.

Power is delivered to the rear wheels through a six-speed manual transmission from Ricardo, while the limited-slip differential has been taken from Ford. Making it extremely lightweight is a carbon fiber body with few components inside. The cockpit features two carbon fiber-backed seats along with six-point harnesses and adjustable pedals. In the dash is a touchscreen datalogger since it is a race car after all.

The Innotech Aspiron starts at $149,000 and will make its first public appearance at the 2013 Goodwood Festival of Speed which runs from July 12 to July 14.
