2009 Lotec Sirius coming with more power

Article by Christian A., on August 29, 2010

The German supercar Lotec Sirius was introduced earlier in the millennium by the previous Group C2 championship race winner Kurt Lotterschmid.

It was propelled by a twin-turbocharged Mercedes-Benz 6.0-Liter V12 engine and was made available in several performance levels, beginning with about 850 hp (635 kW) up to 1,200 hp (895 kW) in some form.

In spite of a number of obstacles and eventual production setbacks surrounding the initial Sirius, Lotec intends to make available an improved version in 2009 and has released sample illustrations of the new vehicle.

No specs have yet been given but our sources says that the new vehicle will probably yield less than the present version, most probably because of the preceding V12 mill no longer being offered.

One element that will stay, however, will be the present version's carbon-fiber over tubular steel-frame design structure.

This hi-tech construction method allows the Sirius to tip the scales at less than 1,400 kg in spite being equipped with numerous creature comforts such as air-conditioning and power-steering.

Although not established independently, Lotec says that its supercar was able to accelerate from 0-62 mph in just 3.8 seconds, exceed 120 mph in 7.8 seconds and attain maximum speed of 242 mph.
