It's not every day that we come across a new company aiming to make a high-performance supercar. But it sure can seem that way. The latest to enter the fray is Supercar System, a company determined to deliver exotic machinery, but with a twist: that twist being a far lower sticker price than you'd expect of most such exotics.

A target price of $69,000 promises to get you a chromoloy frame draped in carbon-fiber bodywork with a V8 sourced (naturally) from General Motors and a 2,200-pound curb weight. With power ranging, according to the customer's specifications, from 452 to 694 horsepower, the car aims to deliver a 0-60 time of around three seconds.

Couple that with a six-speed sequential transmission, a flat underfloor leading to rear diffusers and Brembo carbon-ceramic brakes, all in a highly customizable configuration, and you've got a potentially winning package on your hands. We say "potentially" because a lot of these ambitious projects never see the light of day – but with these kinds of specs, here's hoping this one makes it to production.

      Looks great, but I have my doubts it will ever happen, especially at those prices. Palatov motorsports is way ahead in development of more impressive cars at similar prices. Of you can build a kit for much cheaper. Factory 5 has two good options: * GTM: LS powered, mid-engine, with roof, 2435#, $35,000 to $50,000 * 818: Subaru WRX powered, mid-engine, with optional ragtop roof, 1850-2000#, $15,000 to $25,000

      They are going to get it to meet NHTSA regulations, pass crash tests and EPA emissions testing and still have it cost only $69k? Well, I hope they make it but I'm skeptical. That said, I was skeptical that Tesla would ever deliver the Model S, so I'm prepared to be surprised.

      $69k for a LS3 might be able to happen. That's a $8k or so for an already CARB certified (BIG money saver there) crate engine, and leaves $60k to basically stuff that into a kit car of some kind. Probably not much more or less than doing it yourself with a FF GTM or SL-C, but already built for you.

      By definition something costing $69k can not be a supercar. If it's under $600k MSRP right now brand new = Not a Supercar, never will be one

      Looks like an awesome deal - precision engineered chassis, your choice of power plant, lightweight body kit - perfect for backroad blitzing or track days!!! 2200 pounds? EVEN BETTER!!! Looks like the car Lotus should have built long ago :-) Can't wait to see one and drive one. $70k is a bargain in todays market.
