Barabus Sports Car Ltd. (not to be confused with Brabus, the Mercedes-Benz tuner) has been working on a 1005-bhp supercar for the past ten years. Now that's dedication. It's being unveiled at the British Motor Show in London this week, but we were getting impatient waiting for pics. A quick email to Barabus resulted in these pictures of the hyper exotic sports car that's powered by a 6.0L V8 with twin turbochargers and dual intercoolers. We were told by the company its website should be ready by tomorrow, at which time there should be a lot more information on this potential Veyron killer.

      What happened to the back of that thing? It looks like a Pagani reject.
      • 8 Years Ago
      That rear end.... I think I just threw up a little.

      It's Ugly and a cheap copycat- Looks like a failed replica of the already Ugly Saleen S7-
      • 9 Years Ago
      I agree that it looks like a S7, the side profile and raised fenders give it a copycat look. And yes the S7 has a 7.0L twin turbo V-8 at 750hp.

      looks like another five supersports

      They've been working on it for 10 years eh? Maybe that's why it looks like something that should have been on the market 10 years ago, not now.

      All these exotic sports cars look the same after a while, nothing impressive. Give me a 1959 Ferrari anyday!

      What is the smart barabus?
      • 9 Years Ago
      Looks sexy except for the silver mesh, I'm not sure why anyone insists that's a good look. If you have to have mesh, at least paint it black so your eye isn't drawn to it.

      Ten years to make 1000 HP? You guys need to review the Ford GT, Viper, and Vette boards. It sounds like a magic number, but it's relatively easy to hit that mark with $20K-$30K and the right tuner. I know a guy whose daily driver is a 1200 HP twin-SC Viper. And the build-up only took about two months, not ten years.

      The roads are crawling with street-driven cars that make well over 1000 HP.

      Is that a Saleen body?

      Heck... ten years... does that mean parts of their design date from the mid-90's?

        Well said
        I mean, there are actually over 100,00 cars in the world that have a 1000hp and and there are dozens of ways people have done it and their engineers must have brains made of poo if it took them 10 YEARS to make it.
        Im only 12 but even i could make a 1000hp engine
        Cya l8er!

      Sorry, that is one ugly car. Just looks like some crappy kit car with chicken wire all over it.

      just a notice for the many missinformed here... every single Veyron engine has between 1020 and 1040 hp...everywere in the world the Veyron has more than 1000hp... if bhp us hp europen hp no matter... Bugatti gurantees everywhere in the world the factory claimed 1001hp...
