Swedish supercar will turn heads – the Quercianella

When I think of Swedish cars, I think of dull but safe. That may change if Laboratorio Bebi, a new Swedish carmaker, gets their new car, the Quercianella, onto the road. It is definitely not dull. At first glance the 2.4L V8 engine might seem to be a bit small. But when you read that it can do 0-100 km/h in 3 seconds, top out at 300 km/h and kick out 525 bhp, you probably won’t mind the size anymore. This supercar is able to go that fast due in large part to its weight – just 1147 lbs. Seriously. The carbon-fibre semi-monocoque construction is why it’s able to be so light. It has a six-speed sequential gearbox.

If you’re a linguist, you’ll notice that Quercianella is an Italian name for a Swedish car. It’s named in honor of the legendary Italian designer Giotto Bizarrini, who has been behind the Lamborghini Miura and Ferrari 250GTO, among others. Quercianella is the town where he lives and works.

The car is about to go into production, but there is no word yet how many will be made, what they will cost or when you can get one.
