Click above for gallery of the Iconic GTR

While flipping through a copy of the DuPont Registry on our way to Geneva, we came across a full-page ad for Iconic Motors, a company that proclaims to be building an All-American supercar conceived and built with the express purpose of redefining the luxury sports car segment. We didn't give it much thought at the time, but Autoblog reader Dan sent over a link to the company's website, and although the details are minimal, our interest was mildly piqued.

The Iconic GTR is an obvious nod to the Shelbys of yore, with a body and chassis apparently crafted from all manner of lightweight materials. Weighing in at an estimated 2,200 pounds, the GTR is theoretically powered by an 800+ hp 6.9-liter aluminum V8 designed and produced by Iconic. Unfortunately, Iconic's website doesn't get into the nitty-gritty of the mechanics of the GTR. Instead it hypes up the fact that there are 18 patent-pending pieces on the bespoke roadster (from the door handles to the "gas-cap control system") and that the interior features more jewelry-grade kit than Tiffany's.

The GTR's official unveiling took place at the Amelia Island Concours event this past weekend. Production is said to be limited to just 100 units, though we couldn't find a peep about pricing on the company's website.

      Shelby cobra meets the Spyker... With a little Ariel Atom thrown in for the suspension...

      Note look how well Spyker has done...

      Also Patent on a billet shift knob? Do you really need that tight a tolerances on a shift knob...

      80 pounds of billet to make an 8 pound fuel door mechanism? Sounds way off, unless they cannot figure out how to cut/buy smaller billet blocks.

      They should have spent some money on good photography. That looks terrible. Also, the headlight treatment ruins the classic look.

      Like Vintage said, the Lens Flare guy got outta hand in photoshop too. He should have spent more time filling giant gaps in fenders/doors.

      The motor looks cool though. (Chevy Motor?) Not sure.

      When I first saw the pic on the front page, my reaction was "WTF?"

      After I read the article, my conclusion is "WTF?"

      and btw, if you have to ask for the price, you most certainly can't afford it

      LENS FLARE!

      Bhahahahaha. Lens flare makes anything a joke.

      There is already an iconic GT-R, made by Nissan.

      Almost interesting design, but seems like overkill simply for the sake of overkill, without purpose.

      Not that I will see one in reality, even if they do get built!

      Crappy photography and references to bejeweled interiors do not bode well for this car.

      800+ HP and aero like a kite through water. I guess that's not the point though.
