The 2000hp Dagger GT that has a top speed of 300 mph should have no trouble achieving its aim of being the best-looking, fastest Supercar in the world. Of course, its designers intend for this supercar to break all world records and to re-establish the most popular class of race car, the unlimited class that became extinct as it had been put through regulation and restriction.
Buyers can be assured that each Dagger GT will be carefully hand-made and will be custom-made according to one's preferences. Buyers can choose from three hard-core racing models; a street-legal sport model with comfort features; and a luxurious GT-X model.
The carmaker plans to have 5 production Daggers delivered in 2011. If the buyer opts for it, the Dagger can be built to be 49-state street-legal. The Dagger GT-S or "Sport" model has a base MSRP of $450,000 but can go higher if some custom work is requested.
Deliveries are set to start in the first half of 2011. It's claimed that production of this supercar is highly limited to maintain the superior quality and excellent craftsmanship. There are actually only two more units to be sold before the 2011 production allotment of five units is used up. As soon as the first five units are under contract, negotiations will begin for the 10 units that will be delivered in 2012.
The Dagger GT is based on an exceptional mid-engine concept car, the Corvette Cheetah, which was designed by Ivan Luccion. Its consulting lead designer is Phil Frank, who is famous for having designed the Saleen S7 Supercar which recently won the 24 hours of LeMans. Each Dagger GT is custom-made from 100% proven, guaranteed, off-the-shelf racing components and hand-built to the highest standards.
The supercar is equipped with a big block, 2000hp aluminum, twin turbo 572 multifuel racing engine, which is built routinely by Nelson Racing Engines. The carmaker said that the engine is streetable. The supercar also features a custom TranStar/Mendeola 6-speed transaxle geared to 308 mph. The transaxle can withstand the 2000 foot-pounds of torque that the engine generates. The Dagger GT is also fitted with a high-strength 4130 Chromoly Steel chassis and a space-age carbon fiber body, which is fabricated by the aerospace industry.
