Isis AM01 – Click above for high-res image gallery

What you're looking at isn't the latest homologation special to come from an automaker's sports prototype racing program. (It's not an imaginary spy agency from a cartoon show for that matter, either.) It's a Dutch supercar of sorts, and you can buy one now.

It's called the Isis AM01, and it may not be pretty, but it is, well... intriguing. Forget the "controversial" design, and underneath you'll find the 275-horsepower 2.0-liter turbocharged boxer four-cylinder from the Subaru Impreza WRX STI driving the rear wheels via a five-speed manual transmission. It's reportedly based on the Saker GT, another small-run supercar from New Zealand.

With only 1,875 pounds to schlepp around, the 275 horses are reportedly enough for a 4.2-second sprint to 62 and a 160 mile per hour top speed. €120,000 ($175k) is the asking price, but a more powerful AM02 version with 400 horsepower from an unspecified 3.0-liter engine is also said to be in the works for a €20k ($30k) premium.

Seeing such a rare bird up close would be a unique burden opportunity, so check it out now in the gallery below and the video after the jump.
