British manufacturer Keating Supercars has unveiled a prototype version of its new model, the Keating 'The Bolt'.
The Keating, which is a similar size to a McLaren P1, is powered by a 7.0-litre LS7 V8. The engine, sourced from General Motors, transmits its power to the rear wheels via a six-speed transaxle.
Standard output for that particular engine would be in the region of 505bhp and 470lb ft; Keating says its version produces around 640bhp. With a quoted kerb weight of 990kg (although Keating's engineers quote a more realistic 1200kg), an 800bhp version of The Bolt is claimed to accelerate from 0-60mph in 2.0sec.Read Article
