Amoritz GT DR7 Supercar – Click above for high-res image

Brazil really does have quite a bit going for it. Aside from being the largest nation in South America and having some of the most beautiful people on the planet, the country is slowly beginning to test the supercar waters. Need proof? Look no further than the Amoritz GT DR7.

We'll have to forgive the GT DR7 for looking suspiciously like a very cab-forward Gallardo just because of what's lurking in the engine bay. Armoritz has chosen to shoe-horn an ethanol-guzzling 8.4-liter V10 borrowed from none other than the Dodge Viper amidships. The company says it's expecting north of 600 horsepower to come galloping forth from the ten-pot and we see no reason to disagree.

The Armoritz GT DR7 is slated for an official unveil this October, at which point we're sure the company will be happy to supply you with a set of keys for the right amount of coin. How much? It's anyone's guess at this point, but considering the cost of most mid-engine V10 terrors on the road these days, it won't be cheap.

      Color me more impressed if someone can build a new affordable sports car. Even more impressed if it is an affordable mid-engined sports car.

      There are plenty of established players throwing price-points to the wind, and just building whatever they want.

      Build something for regular enthusiasts who can't afford to blow hundreds of thousands... that might actually garner some appreciation.

      All it needs is a Batman logo on the side and the Dark Knight would definitely pimp this.

      Hot modern video game interpretation of a Diablo-lookin' thing.

      Does this look like the Mazda Furai to anyone else?

      Nothing like a myriad of crap design garage engineered cars to make me appreciate the R8 V10 more and more every day.

      'ohh... u wanted to be able to see behind you and be able to check out your blind spots... epp... and cab foward isn't a supercar design ideology... ooohhh crap'

      yeah no.

        Most mid-engined cars force a cab-forward design....

        I'm just sayin...

      I'll believe it when I see it. But really... of all the engine technology out there, they're going with the Dodge V10? Not knocking the engine; just thinking there might be something better technologically out there.
      Looks like Lee Iacoca is still in the car business... Dodge engine and cab forward design and all.
