2007 Weber Sportscar

Weber Sportcars from Tobel, Switzerland are dreaming big with their latest mock-up revealed at the 2007 Top Marques Monaco show. What they have in mind is a 250 mph, carbon fiber supercar that is shaped largely by aerodynamics. After nine months of computer-aided design, they were able to make a full size model of what the final shape might look like. Included is an active rear wing that changes in angle for both acceleration and braking.

Power for the new Sportscar will come from a 7.0l supercharged V8 that will churn out 950 bhp to the rear wheels. Other equally impressive features include 12-piston carbon/ceramic disc brakes, a fully sequential gearbox and a speculated 0-60 time of 2.5 seconds.

Options will include a versatile on board computer with timing devices, a multimedia kit or a full race ‘package’ which might make it eligible for endurance sports car racing.

Over the next year it will be interesting to see if Weber can elevate this project to the next level. While we don’t particularly like the styling, if the new car can achieve any of the aforementioned performance figures we will pay close attention.
