Whoa!! Oullim Motors Spirra!!!

The Spirra is a Korean supercar built by Oullim Motors and sold through Proto Motors since 2007. The original Spirra had a mid-mounted 320 hp 4.6-liter Ford Modular V8 -- essentially a mustang cobra motor. However, once Oullim took over, the American muscle was dropped in favor of a force inducted Hyundai V6. Specifically the 2.7-liter Delta unit out of the Tiburon.

When hooked to a supercharger, the Spirra S makes 400 hp. Not bad at all. However, when a turbocharger gets involved the Spirra Turbo generates a whopping and impressive 500 hp. Looks like there is a replacement for displacement, no? A supercar needs this sort of thrust, especially when it's going to tangle with the aforementioned big dogs of the Italian persuasion. And here's the kicker -- the Spirra only weighs about 2,200 pounds. The Power to Weight ratio is insane!!
