Saker's latest supercar has been caught testing and by the looks of things, the New Zealand-based sports car company has a new contender on its hands.
For the uninitiated, Sakar was founded in 1992 by engineer Bruce Turnbull and named for the Saker Falcon. In the intervening years, Sakar has been producing track-ready racecars, and in 2009 it began producing the Saker GT – its first street-legal offering. The lightweight, mid-engine sports car was available in three variations – the Saker GT220, Saker GT500 and the Saker GT Clubsport – but that was then. This is now.

The updated Saker GT appears to bring the styling into the modern era. Although it's wearing the trendy black and white "camo" paint job, the large fenders and aggressive lines are hard to obscure.

At the moment, powerplants, chassis and suspension information is scarce, but the Dutch site Driving-Fun has more shots of the Saker GT being put through the paces, and judging by its current form, we should know more about the Kiwi's latest entrant into the sports car world soon. Thanks for the tip, Luuk!

      Saker Sportscars is based in The Netherlands, not New-Zealand. :-)

        It looks like Saker was started as a collaboration between a Dutch man and a New Zealand engineer...

        You are right though, it seems their headquarters are in the Netherlands. I read information elsewhere which stated they were based in New Zealand for some reason.

      Looks like a typical LeMans race car.......nothing special.

        Except the price, about €55.000...!

      Four lug wheels...? Interesting.
