The FasterOne or F1 model from the Swiss Weber Sportcars Company had a difficult life. The first time the prototype of this car was shown in far 2007. The general idea met all the canons out there: the 900 hp engine, the aluminum space power structure, the carbon outer panels, everything was on its place. Everything except for the design, the shape of the car was so ridiculous and absurd that you could easily laugh for an hour when you first saw it. However, the Swiss manufacturers didn’t give up and went to redesign the entire concept from the scratch. It took them almost 5 years, but the result is beyond all expectations.
The new incarnation resembles the previous FasterOne vehicle only by the name and the overall layout. You can already see from the first official pictures that the interior of this car is unbelievable. What you can’t see is the new technical characteristics. The new version of F1 has a 5.6 liter V10 engine with 1200 hp of capacity. How about that? Oh, and by the way, the overall weight of the vehicle is only 1250 kg, which is 65 kg lighter than the previous model. Such light weight becomes possible thanks to the carbon monocoque that is supplemented with the chrome-molybdenum steel tubings. The dimensions of this vehicle are the following – 450 cm in length, 204 cm in width and 115 cm in height.
The acceleration time to get the 100 km /hour speed takes 2.5 seconds, the 200 km/hour speed can be obtained in 6.6 seconds and the 300 km/hour takes 16.2 seconds. Now think for a moment what other car can accelerate faster than this one? Well, let us save your time and say that there is no such car in the world, this one is the fastest in its segment. The exact numbers of the maximum speed are still unknown but the car makers say that it will be more than 400 km / hour. Well, this may seem like the beginning of a new era for sport cars. The production of Weber F1 will start in April of 2013, the price of this car, however, may be known on the factory, so if you’re planning to buy it, you will be invited to visit the production line and have a talk with the managers.
