What Does ₩161,000,000 Buy You?


Spirra Turbo

₩ is the symbol for the Korean Won, their form of the Dollar.  161,000,000 Won sounds like a lot, and it is, roughly equating to $130,000 bucks.  For that, you could by a Corvette ZR1 and a few extra sets of tires.  Or you could buy a tricked out GT-R and mob the streets with all wheel drive prowess.  But now there’s a new option, and it’s price just so happens to be $131K.  They call it the Spirra, and it’s a quick little devil. Using a 2.7-liter V6 Hyundai engine, lifted from a Tiburon, the creator was able to squeeze out 400 horsepower by throwing on a sizable supercharger.  That’s the Spirra S, and for a car that weighs just 2,200 pounds with a full tank of gas, that’s a real nice power-to-weight ratio.  But if it want’s to compete with the aformentioned ZR1 and GT-R, or even Ferrari’s and Lambo’s, it would probably need 25% more to hold it’s own.  So they creators went back to the drawing board and threw on a turbo.  Crank the boost and you net 500 ponies from a car that weights a Keg more than an Elise.

The Spirra Turbo has a top speed in the 200+ MPH range, so you can bet that it will keep up with just about anything. Here’s a video of it dusting an F430.  The racing starts around the 3:35 mark.
