Rossin-Bertin Vorax is Brazil’s V10-powered Supercar

Brazil is well known for a few things like it’s fancy football and bubble-butted women but not for its supercars. That may be set to change with the Rossin-Bertin Vorax that will make its debut at the Sao Paulo Auto Show shortly. There’s no doubt the styling won’t be to all tastes but the Vorax has some serious credentials with a carbon fibre body and aluminium chassis. According to its makers, it will weigh just 1,300 kg and be powered by a hard-tuned 5.0-litre V10 lifted from the current BMW M5.

Although untested at this stage, the “base model” 425 kW Vorax should reach 100 km/h in just 3.8 seconds and go on to a top speed of 330 km/h. Meanwhile, the harder core 559 kW supercharged variant can do just 3.6 seconds to 100kph and a 372 km/h top speed.

The creators of the Vorax wanted to build a supercar that could compete with the likes of Ferrari, Lamborghini and Porsche – a ambitious goal.

Production of the Vorax coupe will begin at a manufacturing plant in Blumenau, Brazil later this year or early 2012. A convertible version is scheduled to follow the coupe a year later. The plan is to sell between 500 and 1,000 Voraxes for around US$409,836 each.
