Being a French supercar isn’t an easy task when you’re attempting to follow in the massive wake of the once-in-a-lifetime Bugatti Veyron. The Genty Akylone is the latest creation aiming to have a crack at it.

The mid/rear-engined supercar is powered by a twin-turbocharged 4.8-litre V8 with in excess of 745kW of power and 1270Nm of torque.

All that power will be channelled to the rear wheels via a seven-speed sequential transmission.

Genty says its supercar will launch from 0-100km/h in just 2.7 seconds, hit 200km/h in 7.0 seconds, and skip on to 300km/h in 14 seconds before reaching its top speed of 354km/h.

At 4467mm long, 2050mm wide, 1115mm tall, and with a wheelbase of 2780mm, Genty says the Akylone will weigh about 1100kg, distributed 42:58 front-to-rear.

The monobloc composite chassis incorporates carbon and aluminium and the body is structured into three cell assemblies (front, centre and rear).

There’s no word on pricing yet, but Genty says the Akylone will be limited to just 15 units – so if you need to ask, you probably can’t afford.

 

What do you think Genty Akylone? We see plenty of inspiration from other supercars in the design. What do you see? Let us know in the comments section below.
