We had supercars form Sweden and from Denmark. Now Slovenia wants a piece of action too with this, the Shayton Equilibrium.
There’s no denying that the Shayton looks good. The numbers they claim are also quite remarkable. They say the car’s carbon-titanium structure and body panels result in a weight of just 1,200 kg, which in combination with the 1084 bhp V12 engine (from an unknown source) will enable the car to reach top speed of over 400 km/h with 0 to 100 km/h in 3.1 seconds. That is the Veyron territory and the only car that managed to enter that was the American SSC.
But as Dagger proved before with their GT, it is wasy claiming things but quite a bit harder actually doing those things! Specially when you are an unknown Slovenian company. But there’s a first time for everything, right?!
As for the design, it seems they’ve put the Enzo, Koenigsseg CCX and the Zonda in ja and then shaked it real hard to arrive at this! The car also has a wierd name, Shayton, which means falcon in the Sioux language and devil in Pesian and Arabic. Equilibrium is also no good, but better than Koenigsseg anyway!
It seems to be another wishlist by an optimistic car maker who wants to seat with the big boys. If they got around making it, then good. If they couldn’t, we just got some cool renderings to look at:
