    American Startup PSC Motors Wants to Change the Supercar Game Forever

    The road to creating a world-class hypercar is not paved in gold. It takes years of research and development paired with a knowledgeable team—oh, and lots and lots of capital to back it up. All things considered, one American upstart wants to take on that task.

    Las Vegas-based startup PSC Motors has big plans to revolutionize the world of supercars and hypercars. CEO Antonio Calva has high hopes of being the next Horacio Pagani, or Christian Von Koenigsegg with a crop of supercars to call his own.

    We recently spoke with Mr. Calva in order to get a more detailed overview of exactly what the company has planned, and exactly how they plan to accomplish these big dreams.

    It starts with one car: the SP150. Though, calling it just another supercar wouldn’t be a fair description. “We want the SP-150 to be the biggest bang for the buck,” said Calva. “Starting prices will be less than $80,000 and performance figures will be in the high six hundreds.” Consider our interest piqued.

    The base SP-150 will start with a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 and 680 horsepower. Keeping in line with the “less-than-$80,000” price theme, it will only set you back $75,000. From there, power and price starts to climb.

    A 750-horsepower SP-150S will also be available, followed by an 820-horsepower SP-150R, and a 900-horsepower SP-150 Mugen (yes, that Mugen). Prices will sit at $100,000, $130,000, and $210,000, respectively. But that’s just the beginning.

    While you can consider the more ‘affordable’ SP-150 the starting point, the SP-200 will be the hypothetical ending point for every car in the segment.

    Under the hood we’ll see a twin-turbocharged 9.0-liter V8 with 1,700 horsepower. If that’s not enough, two 300-kW electric motors will produce a comparable 402 horsepower each, and give the SP-200 a 100 mile electric plug-in range.

    Total output sits at 2,500 hp, which is an absolutely monstrous amount. It will use all-wheel drive and an 8-speed sequential gearbox to get all that power to the ground. Only 45 will be built, each coming in at a price of $1.8 million.

    Like many companies before it, it almost sounds too good to be true. But don’t discount PSC just yet—they (allegedly) have all the cash and know-how to make it happen.

    “We do have all the funds to produce both the SP-200 and SP-150,” said Calva. “We have a group of 32 engineers working around the clock all with previous automotive history to produce the SP-200.”

    Both cars are expected to debut at Geneva in March of 2016. Not just some empty shells either—running, driving, moving vehicles. And Calva and his team are definitely looking to wow the crowd.

    “The problem with startup car companies is that they don’t bring anything new to the table. And if you want to succeed in the automotive industry, you have to be unique.”

  2. Looks are average, and I don't think the whole a la carte engine menu for a startup supercar has ever made traction? Richie Rich isn't going to want to have his $1,800,000 car looking exactly like Joe Smith's $75,000 base model. But whatever, cool if they build it.

    That output on the top model is ridiculous though, fitting a monstrous 9 liter engine into a supercar along with 2 electric motors... good luck engineers

  3. seen this design floating around the net before. I think a 14 y.o. designed it.
  4. i want a 2500 horsepower quad turbocharged 12 liter v16 with five electric motors, one for each wheel and the fifth one is for the air conditioning.
  5. every supercar maker wants that
    but dunno, walking into a bar and saying to the next bird you want to pull "wanna ride? I got a PSC?" sounds more like a medical excuse than a car on the lot

    change the name and let's reexamine this
