We wouldn't hold it against you if you'd never heard of the FSO Syrena Sport. FSO built the long-enduring Syrena for some 17 years nonstop, and while the machines were mostly plodding family sedans, engineers at FSO did create one version with a bit more zest. The Syrena Sport was a two-door coupe that borrowed design cues from Ferrari and was powered by a two-cylinder, air-cooled boxer engine. While originally intended for production, economic woes kept the machine from ever seeing the light of day.

Now, the Syrena Sport is back, though in a slightly different configuration. Entrepreneur Rafal Czubaj has resurrected the name for a special one-off creation designed by Pavlo Burkatskyy. This time around, there is no oddball boxer under the hood, however. Czubaj chose to use the underpinnings from the Nissan 370Z, complete with its 3.7-liter V6 engine. Buyers can choose between a 330-horsepower tune or a 450-hp iteration, and with a curb weight of 2,865 pounds, the car should be plenty quick. Expect acceleration to 60 miles per hour in around 4.5 seconds and a top speed of 180 mph.

      I\'m shocked at how well the platform carries that shape. Beautiful. Too bad this isn\'t the Z. It would sell in droves!

      I like it. I love it! Looks very understated, yet elegant. The design is clean and doesn't look like anything on the street today. Definitely looks like something Pininfarina would design.

      I wish the Z only weighed 2,865 lbs...

      Nice. Looks like something from Burnout or Grand Theft Auto. Yakuza Stinger, maybe?

      Hopefully this sees the light of day. The vq engine is one of the best sounding engines that isn't a flat plane crank (Ferrari, Lamborghini, ect)

      U r all talking about the 370Z and its design, but have you ever seen the original syrena sport? The one here is not even an interpretation, it just bears some styling cues from the old car, but all in all it's a bit strange to see this legendary nampelate on sth like this....

      Wow! That is definitely an improvement over the nissan. I wonder what the interior looks like.

      Beautiful? Ugh... this ugly jack-o-lantern, computer-created design language makes me want to vomit. I don't find this attractive in the least... and I surely don't see any 370 lineage in the lines of this car. JMHO.

        I don't think the point was to show any 370z lineage, they just used the chassis/running gear.
          • 1 Year Ago
          Just the running gear, they plan to build completely new chassis.
