Mostro Di-Potenza SF22 promises serious power and performance – Click above for high-res image gallery

The Lamborghini Indomable was born from the minds of Daniel Chinchilla Ochoa and Alberto Fernandez Albilares. A concept, it was created as part of a design program sponsored by Lamborghini. Now, however, this conceptual vision is going to become a reality – only it won't be built in Sant'Agata Bolognese.

A company called 215 Racing has acquired the rights to the Indomable design, and it plans to turn out a production version of the design team's rendering. Based in Abington, PA, 215 Racing will produce the car, which will be called the SF22, through its sub-company Mostro Di-Potenza. That name means "Monster Power" in Italian, and the moniker doesn't lie.

According to the company, power for the SF22 will be provided a mid-mounted twin-turbocharged 9.4-liter(!) V8 engine. The mill is a General Motors 572, which will be paired with a six-speed sequential gearbox. 215 Racing expects this beast to produce 2,000-horsepower and 2,000 pound-feet of torque. Just a quick recap for you, this isn't a train we're talking about but a road-going two-door that is propelled via its rear wheels.

Of course, any company can claim such dramatic power numbers. So, we can only wait to see just how capable the finished Mostro Di-Potenza SF22 turns out – if indeed salable examples are produced at all. The company plans to build 50 examples total, at a rate of two per month over the course of two years, and says it's now taking orders for mid-2012 deliveries. The initial deposit will only cost you $1,000, but the fully built vehicle will run you close to $950,000.

215 Racing Inc./Mostro Di-Potenza Announces Exclusive Rights to Build the Lamborghini Indomable Concept

ABINGTON, PA, May 09, 2011 /24-7PressRelease/ -- 215 Racing Inc. an American Based company, is proud to announce the exclusive rights to build the Lamborghini Indomable Concept created by Design 4 Motion. This design was created by Daniel Chinchilla under the Masters Program sponsored by Lamborghini. The design is a perfect fit for the first offering of 215 to the supercar market.

The car will be built by the Sub-company MOSTRO DI-POTENZA and will be renamed The SF22. This name comes from the design influence of the F22 fighter jet, and is incorporated in the car. SF stands for Street Fighter and only 50 of these cars will be produced.

"We knew that entering a market as a new supercar company has become a rarely successful trend. We hope to make our niche by offering the customers something they could never imagine," said Anthony Crudup, Chief Executive Officer, 215 Racing/ Mostro Di-Potenza.

The huge front intake funnels ram air to cool the huge 14" Disc and 6 piston Brake calipers. The rear tail lights double as an airfoil that help disrupt airflow to assist in reducing drag.

Try imagining a 2000HP mid-engine supercar powered by a twin-turbo 572 GM engine. A supercar that can fit a 6'7" driver, a 6 speed billet sequential transmission, a Carbon fiber/ Kevlar blend composite body, a full touch screen cockpit , Airspeed adjustable intercoolers and wing/speed brake.

"We think it's time for the Bugatti Veyron to pass the top speed production car crown to us. They have held it for 10 years! But that is not our primary focus, we want to give the owner something that can only come from Mostro and I think we nailed it with this design. Also 70% of all our vendors are American Companies and we pride ourselves on keeping our fingers on the pulse of the newest and most innovative automotive technology the industry has to offer," said A. Crudup.

Daniel Chinchilla, The Designer modified the design to get away from the Lamborghini feel of the car but was able to maintain the Italian styling. We didn't want the public to ask "Is that the new Lamborghini?" said Anthony Crudup.

The automobiles will be produced in the Philadelphia, PA area, at a production rate of 2 per month. 215 is currently accepting Preliminary Sale Contracts for the Purchase of the car for mid- 2012.

      Bah, my fantasy supercar rendering has THREE thousand horsepower. The company is called F!@#$ing Unbelieveably Overpowered Motors and the moniker doesn't lie.

      Is this the 10 second car that Dom wanted from Brian? It might do 8..

      A Chevy 572ci big block crate motor does about 750bhp/685ft/lb in NA form. That's running at 12:1 compression. If they dropped the static compression SIGNIFICANTLY, added some kind of snail, and then ran it on racing gas, it could do 2000bhp. HOWEVER, a supercharger sitting in the V valley between the cylinder heads and the usual intake stack would be too tall for this car. A pair or four turbochargers could do it, but then it would probably be too wide, considering all of the large pipes needed to get that air back up to the intake. And on top of that, the wet sump system on a 572 or any big block Chevy makes it even more impractical, and in order to fit in the engine bay, even with significant modification the lubrication would have to be converted to dry sump. The weight distribution will be awful, the center of gravity too high, it will be overweight and overpowered. And way too expensive for all that trouble.

      what is that, like 4mpg?

        The Veyron gets 3 mpg at top speed (1,000 hp). I wonder how this will fare.

      Oh thats sick. I love that design, too. And 2K hp might sound like overkill, but there are streetable Vipers with almost that much hp, running on pump gas.

      What happens when a Lamborghini Gallado mates with an SSC Aero II? Who knows, but can we try something other than a 2000hp turbocharged big block (like that Dagger GT and the Vector WX8 with supra headlights and C5 corvette wheels) that can't even put 50% of its power on the pavement efficiently enough to make the driving enjoyable? Unless they want this to be a drag car...

      bull***sht*** and even more talking about a GM engine ...when you want power usually it start al 7000 on a NQ engine but this is not the case...now we R talking about a MASSIVE torque engine BUT its american that means its not DOHC and have very low RPM all this means 2000hp its bullsh***t ...AND the most IMPORTATN thing...LAMBORGHINI do not made crapy engines ;)
      warren,

      I'm sorry, but it took Bugatti several years with some top engineering talent to create a road-legal 1,000 horsepower car, and it required bespoke -everything-. And now you're telling me a couple of unknowns are going to build a car that doubles the engine performance of a Veyron with an off-the-shelf Chevy ZZ572 big block engine with a couple of turbos nailed on? And it's going to be a proper road-legal production supercar? Riiiiiiight.

      Just the hell are you going to do with a 2k hp-rear wheel drive car anyway? Aside from burning off a pair of expensive tires in a few seconds.... Dumb.
