Greece is about to join the world of the supercar, as designer and architect Dimitris Korres of Korres company announce “Korres Project 4,” a plan to construct their own vehicle and race out into the wide world of fast cars.
Korres debuted the supercar Sunday at the 2nd “TATOI CIRCUIT FILPA 2013,” an event celebrating motorsport at the Military Airport Tatoiou. Using the eight cylinder engine of the Chevrolet Corvette ZO6, Korres promises that the 3,500-pound car will have a top speed of 186 mph and 0-60 mph in 3.8 seconds.
For the car junkies reading, Korres’ plans have the supercar’s dimensions at 12.9 ft. long, 6.4 feet wide, 4.1 ft. tall and an 8.4 ft. wheelbase. It will also be equipped with an adaptive suspension which can raise the ride height by almost a foot and a half. Overall, the car seems to be “channeling something like a C3 [Corvette],” as one writer for the automobile news site Jalopnik writes, though it will be smaller than the American car.
Countries have been designing and constructing supercars to compete in the global auto industry for decades. Now Korres’ design has brought Greece into that arena.
