The Mosquito Supercar promises to deliver 600hp and 650Nm of torque with the help of naturally aspirated V8 engine. If we take lightweight of the supercar, it can achieve stunning performance figure. Performance Solutions business development manager, Ryan Thoma said that they have chosen an engine, but they are leaning towards American made powertrain. To keep the weight further down, engine will be mated to a single-clutch racing gearbox operated by paddle shifters. Mosquito Supercar claims to take 0-62mph in 2.9 seconds and will reach top speed of 199mph.
