By all accounts, Marussia is just another exotic automaker hoping to sell a few supercars but just as likely to disappear into obscurity. Except that it hasn't, and may not for some time.

Having potentially overextended itself by buying the majority of a Formula One racing team from Virgin, the Russian upstart needed its newest product – dubbed the B2 – to be the runaway success that the (relatively) less dramatically-styled B1 wasn't. And so it appears it will be as reports indicate that Marussia has sold out its entire production run of 500 vehicles.

In order to keep up with demand, production is reportedly shifting from Marussia's own facility in Moscow to Valmet in Finland, the same place where the Fisker Karma is built now and the Porsche Boxster and Cayman were before it. Cosworth will then be shipping the 3.5-liter V6 that provides between 300 and 420 horsepower (depending on customer specification) to drive the 2,425-pound lightweight supercar to 60 in as little as 3.2 seconds.

Check out the pair in the fresh image gallery above for a closer look.

      It's good to see someone has done their homework when 420hp yields a 0-60 time of 3.2. Too many cars these day make a ton of power but don't have that kind of speed to show for it. Also, the styling is certainly not tame (not even pretty) but at least to doesn't look like every other supercar on the circuit. Well done.

      I wonder if the road car is faster than their F1 car?

      Looks like a perfect fit for the "Wraith Part 2".

      I like these funky different supercars by no name manufacturers, theyre less mainstream which makes them that much more special. Its definitely not going to be mistaken for anything else.

      By the way, Purple version > Blue Version by a landslide.

      The B2 is too unrefined and disjointed. It looks more like a movie prop than a real car. Plus the interior, like most small time supercars, has a pieced together from old, off the shelf parts look. This may have been acceptable in the 80s and 90s but not today.

          That is akin to saying "please explain how pet rocks became a multi-million dollar industry." The massess do not attest for good taste. However, I think its ok. I would never buy one because it is too ridiculous. I'll take a proper car like an aston martin db9 any day.

      I like how different it looks, although I think this car is high up in the running for "most painful car to be hit by on foot"

      Wow. Bravo to a relatively obscure maker for putting together a supercar that looks right and proper. Those things, especially, the newer one, look bat-**** insane. Wonder if they drive as good as they look.
