Montecarlo Rascasse: the eco supercar that uses hydrogen enriched LPG

Article by Christian A., on June 25, 2013

Montecarlo Automobile unveiled the Rascasse, an exclusive supercar featuring an interesting design but also an impressive price tag. Named after the famous corner found on the Monte Carlo F1 racetrack, the Rascasse celebrates celebrates Montecarlo Automobile’s 30th anniversary. According to media sources, Montecarlo will only build 15 units of the Rascasse, each priced at around 500,000 euros.

As you can see from the photos, the front end looks inspired by the Ferrari Enzo, but we have to admit vehicle looks really good, although it is a little bit expensive. What is more interesting is that the supercar features a mid-mounted 5.4-liter V12 engine developed by Bmw delivering 500 hp. Same engine was used on the 1998 Rolls-Royce Silver Seraph.

Still, the Rascasse is capable to run both on gasoline and hydrogen enriched LPG. Montecarlo Automobile was helped by Italian LPG specialist BRC. If the Rascasse is not too impressive for you, the manufacturer is also planning a version that will offer a hybrid system, supercharging but also all-wheel drive. [source: Ansa]
