He’s already designed three extravagant supercars but the UK’s Anthony Keating is confident his latest innovation will reach top speeds of 547kph and get from zero to 100 in just two seconds. And he wants to prove it in the UAE.
The record for the world’s fastest road car record is currently held by the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, which can reach 431kph. But the prototype of Keating’s Bolt will attempt to break world record at Ras Al Khaimah later this year.
With the UAE being home to many supercar aficionados, the founder of Keating Supercars is hoping that the world record attempt would attract plenty of attention. The Bolt has already caught the interest of motor manufacturers and is hoped to go on sale early next year for $1.2m.
Powered by a 7.0-litre LS7 V8 engine the car can bolster 750BHP and will attempt to break the 480kph barrier.
The British supercars company claims that The Bolt uses an extensive amount of space-age and lightweight materials in its construction to reduce the power-to-weight ratio in support of increasing the car's performance figures.
Power is sent to the rear wheels through a six-speed transmission and the car will use carbon and Kevlar panels to reduce its total weight.
At full power, The Bolt can burn its way through a full tank of petrol in nine minutes.
Keating Supercars has purposely designed The Bolt to outperform supercar competition and future versions are intended to be entered into GT and Le Mans racing.
