As if the supercar market wasn’t crowded enough, we’re blessed with another entry from Simbol Design. Dubbed the Lavazza GTX-R, the car looks like a mash-up of a bunch of existing supercars, mainly the Pagani Zonda and the Ferrari Enzo. Judging by the design influences, one would think this car comes from China.
The Lavazza GTX-R does look pretty good and if presented to us, we’d be all over it in a heartbeat. It has proper supercar looks with low to the ground seating and plenty of air intakes all around the car. I like the rear-end the best with the exhaust tips sticking out at the top of the trunk/engine compartment. The interior is minimalist, unlike most modern day supercars, but it seems to work. Not sure about the suede covered dash though; I think leather or carbon fiber would’ve been more appropriate.
The Simbol Design Lavazza GTX-R’s body is made out of carbon-Kevlar and sits on top of a tubular steel frame. The Lavazza is powered by a 5.4 liter BMW V12 engine which is mated to an electro-pneumatic transmission, which is sourced from a bus. The engine produces 489 or 620 horsepower – depending on the information source but either way, the 0 to 60 time is quoted at 4.5 seconds. Not as fast as most of the modern supercars.
The Simbol Design Lavazza GTX-R will come in a coupe and roadster form. No information is currently available on the price, but it could be close to what a proper supercar costs.
