American Startup Wants to Make a 680 HP Supercar for $75K

PSC Motors wants to shake up the supercar market by offering “the biggest bang for the buck.”

Earlier this year, the Las Vegas-based American automaker revealed its plans for the SP-200 SIN, boasting a 9.0-liter V8 engine mated to a pair of electric motors to deliver a combined system output of more than 1,700 horsepower. But those vehicles aren’t going to sell in big volumes and are probably expensive to produce, so PSC Motors will target more of the mass market with an SP-150 model boasting a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 engine with 680 hp. The craziest part? The company wants to offer the model for around $75,000.

From there, the company intends to offer an SP-150S with 750 hp priced around $130,000 and an SP-150R with 820 hp and a $130,000 price tag. Topping the range will be an SP-150 Mugen with 900 hp but a $210,000 price tag.

Of course, the SP-200 is still in development, but it will be limited to just 45 units and will be priced around $1.8 million apiece.

In a recent interview, CEO Antonio Calva confirmed that the company has the funds to produce both vehicles and has “a group of 32 engineers working around the clock all with previous automotive history to produce the SP-200.”

Expect both cars to bow next march at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show and if they do become a reality, other supercar automakers might have to keep an eye on their rearview mirror because PSC Motors is coming.

  • And apparently they’ve decided to build an Acura NSX with the badges scraped off.

  • johnls39 .

    I wonder what type of feature comforts and racing technology this car will have compared to a Ferrari and Lamborghini. Will be interesting to see if coming out in production.

    Riiight … good luck with this venture …

    Or just get a 700 HP Hellcat for $13k less. Granted, you’ll be driving a car and not a scaceship, but still……..

    Elio Motors has a MUCH better chance of actually getting off the ground.

    I didn’t think NSX at all when I saw this. It looked more like a Ferrarghini to me. The PSC 488-Aventador. Pull up the NSX, 488 and Aventador images side-by-side with this PSC and see where the influence comes from.
