Izaro GT-E – Click above for high-res image gallery

With the generous and quixotic assistance of Google Translate we've been able to cobble together random bits about the Izaro Motors GT-E. The brand itself is a resurrected name founded in Madrid in 1922, the Izaro Electric Car Factory. This new company is said to be run by the original founder's grandson, and in keeping with that continuity, his new creation is a sports car that will use either electric or hybrid propulsion.

Originally developed on a Factory Five chassis, at least one source claims that Izaro no longer has any relationship with said company. Izaro explains that the roughly 2,200-pound chassis they're using is fabricated from basalt fiber, magnesium and high-strength steel, and will hide one of two engines: a 495-horsepower electric motor or a 416-hp hybrid combo.

Since current fashion dictates that planned electric supercars need to be accessorized with whopping projected specs, Izaro doesn't disappoint: 0-to-62 miles per hour in under four seconds, a 150-mile range in the electric variant and 428 miles in the hybrid, with a €60,000 ($76,089 U.S.) starting price. Since you probably won't see it anywhere else for a while (if ever), you can check it out in the gallery of high-res photos below.

        Very nice and clean, solid "muscle" lines, but c'mon, it's just a render.

        Yeah. Autoblog has shown student design concepts that have been further along in thought process than this thing. Nothing to see here, folks. Move along.

      Reminds me of the Ford GT90 concept for some odd reason.

      IZARO is an island in the Bay of Biscay on the coast of Biscay, opposite the villages of Bermeo and Mundaca at a distance of 3 km of the first and the second 2.2 km. The island occupies the center of the mouth of the estuary of Mundaka, and is flanked by the ends of Ogoño and Machichaco. Falls within the natural area Urdaibai.
