Catalonian supercar manufacturer Tramontana Group have just released their new update on the a.d. Tramontana. The R-Edition was announced today just before its official unveiling in Girona, on Spain's Costa Brava.

We're not really sure what to say about the look of the car. In black with gold tones, the new supercar has a distinct Batmobile appeal. The cabin covering almost looks like the bubble domes on a car designed by Homer Simpson. Inside it looks very cool, with a special head-up display, and all other controls within easy reach.

Weight distribution on the new edition is a perfectly split 50-50, after engineers cut 92 kilograms off the already lightweight 1,360 kg car. We're not really sure where the workers found 92 removable kilos. The chassis and body are made entirely from aluminum and carbon fibre, while the light carbon fibre wheels are also utilized. More details about the weight savings should come tomorrow, but it may have something to do with the 50 millimeter shortened chassis.

Despite lightening the supercar, it will now come with both power steering and a traction control system. A front splitter was added, and the front and rear spoilers were replaced. New steering wheel, and gauges greet the driver.

All these changes give the a.d. Tramontana R Edition a 0-100 km/h (62 mph) time of 3.6 seconds, on its way to the 200 km/h (124.3 mph) mark in just 10.15 seconds. Top speed is electronically limited to 325 km/h (202 mph), but we bet the 5.5-liter Mercedes V12 engine could push the rear-wheel-drive car even faster. If this is the same V12 from the Mercedes-Benz S600, which normally produces 510 hp. Maybe its the new bi-turbos, but now in this car, this engine should produce well over 550 hp.

But a push of one button in the car supposedly whips out a full 760 horsepower from the V12.

Simply amazing. We will hear more about the a.d. Tramontana R-Edition, and its supposed 385,000 euro price tag tomorrow. Hopefully, it has a horn that plays "La Cucaracha."

i'm absolutely in love with this car. its like a closed cockpit F1 car. and yes, its a 2 seater. can't wait to see how it performs on the track.

There's a time in your life when you realize that there's absolutely nothing else to live for and you just want to die.....that time is your wedding day.

Does it have a boat throttle?


It looks really, really ugly. So ugly it's actually not terrible looking. A little too over done though.

Too many cars to list with only 300 characters, I'm up to 10 now. Smiley
