Bugatti Veyron and SSC Ultimate Aero Twin Turbo have stiff competition from new quarters in the form of the two new supercars from Keating. One of the two new cars coluld very well overthrow the SSC Ultimate Aero Twin Turbo as the world’s fastest car. The race-ready TKR and more streetable SKR were unveiled at an event in UK recently. Both cars will use the steel spaceframe, with a carbon fiber design optional, and will be motivated by either a 6.0L or 7.0L GM-sourced V8. The cars’ rear-wheels will reviece power via a Porsche five-speed gearbox. The fiberglass body is a standard feature on the TKR and SKR, but buyers can also opt for a carbon fiber shell to help reduce weight. Based on the choice of naturally aspirated or supercharged setup, in SKR-guise, the 6.0L and 7.0L mills will produce between 404 and 656 horsepower.
Although the finishing touches on the TKR are still being put, news is that it will be available with a twin-turbocharged engine rated at a mind-numbing 1,500 horsepower challenging the Bugatti Veyron by a Corvette Z06. With that kind of power the TKR should be capable of speeds approaching 270 mph.
