Irmscher 7 Turbo unveiled

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 29, 2010

The latest 7 Turbo, challenger to the Caterham, has just been unveiled by the German firm Irmscher. Built from the same platform as the Lotus Super Seven, the roadster focuses on lightweight performance which should be a daunting track car and particularly so in its most powerful setup. It comes with four levels of trim, the top of which is the 7 Turbo Sport.

Tipping the scales at only 725kg, the Turbo Sport trim comes equipped with a 280hp (209kW) output, providing it with a remarkable power-to-weight ratio of about 390hp for each ton, considerably higher than what others can manage, like Chevrolet Corvette Z06.

For milder power output the available trim is the Turbo Sport model, together with a turbo model with about 210hp (157kW) and a naturally-ventilated version with almost 150hp (112kW).

Each of the models comes with sports tires and a custom suspension system, and an interior that is equipped with an air-conditioning system and a soft roof that is waterproof, unlike the sparse interior of the Caterhams.

Further interior feature includes uniquely designed clocks and a push-start button. The 7 Turbo is equipped with independent front and rear differentials to guarantee optimum road grip even in less than ideal situations. The price for the 210hp (156kW) version is about 55,000 Euros.
