The K1 Attack is from Slovakia, the Tushek Renovatio T500 is from Slovenia. The two countries don't share a border, but the two cars do share an origin: the T500 uses slightly redesigned bodywork from the K1 but is substantially reengineered underneath, one such example being the presence of a mid-mounted 450-horsepower Audi V8.

Autocar went to Slovenia to give it a spin and reviewer Matt Prior liked it, praising its engine response, chassis engineering, fit-and-finish and huge options list. In fact, for the company's first effort, it sounds remarkably polished and well-engineered. The biggest hurdle the open-top T500 could have to jump is its own price: at £300,000 (around $467,000), it's more expensive than the £195,500 McLaren MP4-12C Spider (around $300k), and its price exceeds that of the €255,000 Lamborghini Aventador ($400k) and the predicted €274,000 price of the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta (circa $425k).

But we're told two have already been ordered and paid for, and the Tushek folks make no claims about wanting to take over the world, planning to build just 30 over the next four years. Yet if that's the bar for the T500, we can only wonder what the Tushek Forego T700 is will be charged with. You can checkout Prior's T500 review in the video below.

      They did a pretty good job here, I won't deny that. But almost half a mil??? Haha, yeah, no. I don't know what makes these small outfits think they can charge Lambo money for what is ultimately a well-executed kit car

      I'd love to have one ! But for $500,000 the cockpit is rather small and the interior looks like a kit car. I just love the exterior design, especially the rear. Overall it gives the feel of an overpriced sports car with a go cart performance. I think they hunt for a very all market that might not even exist because people that spend that kind of money expect more of a " car " beside the performance. But like I said, is live to have one.

      Not bad, a bit overpriced, but good attempt at getting in the supercar business by Slovenia.

      Nice try, but pricing is way off for this "Tushek".

      Sooo... no other Slovenians on here but me? :P I like it, I like that even our small country is sometimes capable of making something good in car world... I do, however, agree with the rest of you on the price... But look at it this way: you get something very very exclusive, and it must be a pretty sweet ride around the track, and after reading some other reviews it apears to be road usable too, so it's a whole package... and I love stick shift, unfortunately too rare these days...

      I really like the design of the car. It looks like a work of art. I wish I had the money to buy a car like that. The car sounds great also.

      I would personally rather have the fully Croatian engineered and built Rimac "Concept One" over this so-called Slovenian super car..The more i read about this Tushek, the less Slovenian it becomes. What is actually is considered Slovenian engineering on this car? The Spoiler? lol
