Brokernet Silver Sting

The Silver Sting was designed by Zoltan Peredy, who a couple of years ago created a Smart-size city car with gullwing doors. The coupe is powered by a 3.6-liter, 437-horsepower six-cylinder engine lifted from a Porsche 911GT3, and is of extremely lightweight construction. Bodis plans to race it both in Hungary and abroad. 0-100 km/h: 3.8s

Apparently only 2 have been produced at a cost of over 800.000 euros.

It looks like it's trying too hard.. a bunch of excessive lines and vents. Then again, it's not terrible.

wow, bar the price tag and the gullwing doors that is a very appealing idea for a car imo

It does seem to be trying to hard but yeah pretty cool. Couple of things that spoil it a little: Headlights. Oh Dear. Needs to dish the multi-piece deep dish rims, that type of design makes them look tiny. And it's too low at the back, looks rubbish.

I like the lines, at least I would in a silhouette of the car. The sides are waaay too busy. That said, it's got some serious potential. I like the idea of that engine in a super lightweight body.

It looks quite a bit like a Jaguar XJR-15 if you ignore the busy bits.

Here's what I presume to be a prototype or a production version of the racecar using the engine from a NSX. I don't know anything else, my Hungarian isn't all that fluent.

The design of the sides has some potential...but the front and rear induce sleep.

the guy can sell only one of them and he doesn't have to worry about the money for the rest of his life

but there's a great risk nobody will... same situation as with many companies in the 90's

As has been said, way too many vents and lines.

It seems that lately everyone is launching a new car...
