Tushek develops Forego T700 supercar to rival Lamborghini Aventador

Article by Anita Panait, on April 25, 2012

Tushek Supercars of Slovenia is planning to build a supercar that will directly compete with the Lamborghini Aventador – the Tushek Forego T700. The Forego T700 is expected to have a kerb weight of less than 1000kg and over 700bhp of raw power. According to Aljosa Tushek, founder of Tushek Supercars, the Forego T700 would be able to pull up to 3.3g in extreme cornering.

This means the Forego T700 would be able to pull up double the figure claimed for the Tushek Renovatio T500, Tushek's first production car and allegedly Slovenia's first supercar.

Tushek unveiled the Renovatio T500 at the Top Marques supercar show last weekend in Monaco. The Renovatio T500 is powered by a 444bhp 4.2-litre Audi V8 engine, allowing it to accelerate from zero to 62 mph in just 3.7 seconds and reach a top speed of nearly 200 mph, as claimed by Tushek.

The company will only produce 30 units of the Renovatio T500, which will be available for an eye-dropping starting price of around £245,000.

After the 30th unit, Tushek will then focus on producing the Forego T700.  Tushek revealed to Autocar that they had already sold two Renovatio T500 prototypes and that they have plans to deliver the first production car by the end of the summer.

When it comes to design, Lamborghini has always been about two things. First it shows just how beautiful aggressive power is with the second being that incredible dynamics can be elegant. This is why even when you first look at the Aventador, you can immediately conclude that it is indeed a Lamborghini. It clearly has the unique design language and the qualities the brand is known for.

Specifically, it boasts powerful proportions and the use of precise surfaces and exact lines. It also has that tight muscularity that can be observed in each of the details. Being a Lamborghini, it won’t be surprising to know that its doors open upwards. Composed of carbon-fiber monocoque, this feature was first seen when the brand released the now famous Countach.

After that, Lamborghini also had this unique characteristic implanted in many of its V12 models like the Diablo and even the Murciélago. The doors are not the only feature in the Aventador to come from previous models as there are also the air intakes that are electronically operated, similar to those in the Murciélago.

What the air intakes do is to make sure that the aerodynamic efficiency is maximized basing on how much cooling air is needed and what the temperature on the outside is. With the design language developed at Centro Stile Lamborghini, it is no wonder the new Aventador has that extra edge over its many rivals.

Given the dynamic sculpture, which includes how the front section has been polished, the low roofline, and the unique diffuser in the rear, the Aventador truly is an excellent work of art. Every feature is not only about visuals as each of the lines has a function and was shaped with the vehicle’s need for speed. Still, this did not lessen in any way how magnificent and stunning the overall appearance is.

Aside from the design, the proportions are just as striking. Overall length is 4,780 mm (188.19 in.) with width, including the mirrors on the exterior, measuring 2,260 mm (88.98 in.). Highlighting further the excellent proportions is the low height which is at 1,136 mm (44.72 in.). If all of these are not enough, Lamborghini is giving customers the option to parade the heart of the Aventador to the world. Because of the use of a transparent engine bonnet, customers will be able to show off the powerful 12-cylinder engine like a work of art.
