It's been almost a fortnight, which just might be a record, since we last visited a previously unheard-of supercar-maker. Next up to keep the high-po exotic ball in play is Tushek Supercars, hailing from Slovenia (that's here), with its quaintly archaically named Forego T700. The company just made an appearance at the Top Marques Monaco with its first car, the 444-horsepower Renovatio T500 (pictured in our gallery below) with a modular hardtop, but the T700 will push things much further.

Founder Aljosa Tushek told Autocar the T700's targets: less than 2,200 pounds, more than 700 horsepower, up to 3.3gs for cornering. That latter number sounds like a math error would not only double the Renovatio's number, it would triple the cornering force sustained by the Lamborghini Aventador around the Nardo test track.

The limited-to-30-units Renovatio is priced at £245,000 ($394,934 U.S.) with deliveries promised later this year. Due in 2013, you can expect the T700 to outdo the T500's price by at least double as well, and you can expect both of them to never be sold in the U.S.

      This looks suspiciously like an attack roadster with a wing on the back

        Spot on. Was trying to remember the name of that kit car I've seen all over. Remind me next time I'm out to buy a rolling chassis from a kit manufacturer and then put a drivetrain in it and sell it as a supercar I designed.

      LOOOOOOOOOOOL, pipe dream. 2200 lb, this won't even be 2500 lb. And 3.3 G's? Give me a break, does this look like a F1 car?

      Paying $400,000 for a car made in Slovenia. What could go wrong? Sign me up!

      Under 2200lbs, over 700hp, 3.3G cornering...LOL no chance it's real. I dont even see big downforce generating wings under the cover, it would need to look like an F1 car or at least have a 200hp fan and skirts making a vacuum onto the track. Or is it 3.3G on 70 degree banking for 5 seconds before the tires blow and the suspension crumbles?

      3.3G? I assume that would be Peak Lateral G-Force, and not sustained? To give folks an idea, a super car can exceed 2.0G peak lateral G under some extreme circumstances. I think CAR a while back ran some super cars around Rockingham and were able to record some numbers in the 1.85 to 2.30 range, but the faster laps for those cars didn't involve those extreme loads. 3.3G would require absolutely ludicrous speed through corners, which would necessitate a serious amount of downforce and probably an engine fueled with liquid schwartz. I'm incredibly skeptical.

      Why does it look like the rear window is removable but not the roof? At any rate it looks like a mid engined Ute ( El Camino for the Americans ) with the roof on and rear bodywork off...

      Hahaha!!! Haters, you haven't even seen this car. Shot the hell up! You don't even give "freshmen" a chance to show what they can do. I heard this talk back when Lexus was making the LFA. I say, keep it up, we need fresh ideas, most ideas these days coming from Italy and Germany are lame....

        If the ideas are so "fresh", then how come you do not hear or see anything else about them except for when they are unveiled?If they are so "fresh" then how come there are like 10 of these underdogs coming out each year?Please! These companies raising out of nowhere come up with these amazing numbers, it's just hard for someone to believe them.Little rookies succeed, most fade into not even what i'd call history.

      I see a manual! I'll be watching for this.

        Oh sure. You get all excited about a vaporware noname POS Slovenian "supercar" just because it has a manual, yet completely deride the Aventador for having "***** paddles"? While a manual transmission is more engaging and paddles are quicker and easier, it isnt the defining atribute of a supercar. Sure, if you rented a 100hp subcompact it would be twice as fun with a manual over automatic, and still more fun than paddle shifters, but only because there's nothing else to be excited about. On something as eventful and dramatic as a supercar, it almost doesnt matter how the gears row, and having a 6 speed manual vs paddle shifting semi auto really shouldnt make or break the car. I bet the reason this car has a manual isnt to evoke driver purity and preserve sporting tradition, but because it's cheaper to do than building/sourcing and programming an acceptably good paddle shift.

          You're damn right I derail the 'lamborghini' for only having puss pedals. And you're also probably correct about it being cheaper to make the car with a real transmission. That makes it better on two counts. Lamborghini got started when he told Ferrari that his clutches were crap, put his own tractor clutch in, and flipped him off. It's time for someone to tell lamborghini that their choice to not offer a manual option is crap, put a real transmission in there, and flip them both off.

          I never said manual-only, I'm pissed at automatic-only on what are supposed to be supercars. I don't care about the transmission getting any better, just throw the same manual in from the Murcielago. The engine and styling changed enough for it to be a different car, I'm sure those of us who would want a manual can deal with it. Änd nïcë üsë öf thë ¨ äccënt, ït mäkës ÿöü thë lörd öf thë ïntërnët.
