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.
