Wikispeed SGT01 Prototype Unveiled; Looks for Funding

Wikispeed has just unveiled their new SGT01. The automotive startup is looking for backers to get the car into mass production. SGT01 is a 1,300 lb (590 kg) vehicle envisioned as a futuristic four-seater. The current prototype looks more like an aerodynamic sports racer.

This proposed sedan features an extruded aluminum chassis and a carbon fiber body. The vehicle’s interior, suspension system, crush zones and engine can be removed and replaced rapidly, states the manufacturer.

But no details regarding the engine incorporated have been revealed. But the car reportedly uses a mid-mounted 1.8-liter four-cylinder Honda engine and a five-speed automatic.

It is supposed to allow the car to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 5.5 seconds and achieve a top speed of 149 mph (240 km/h), and return 114 mpg highway.

It is likely that if one pre-orders the model for $28, 800, in its kit form, they will be fortunate to get it at $20,000 by the time the mass production begins.(Via WCF)
