Rarely a month goes by when some plucky upstart claims to be producing another world-class supercar to rival the big boys in the automotive sphere. Today is no different, with a release from Keating, a barely established British marque that will be unveiling two new vehicles to the assembled press on April 23rd, St. George's Day.

According to the company's release (posted after the jump), the first model, named the SKR, will be producing 400 hp with a chassis aimed to provide effortless cruising in the Grand Touring tradition. The other model, dubbed the TKR, shares the same sheet metal as the SKR, but "boasts more power than an F1 race car" and has supposedly beat the Bugatti Veyron's top speed run while undergoing testing.

While that claim is unconfirmed and highly unofficial, with eight years of development time under its belt, we're sure Keating is doing its damnedest to stoke the flames before its official reveal next month. We're hoping to see the finished product at one of the few international auto shows left this year.

New Supercar launching on St George's Day

A new British Supercar is to be launched on 23rd April, St George's Day.

Eight years in development, in private testing an early prototype of the sports GT broke the world speed record held at the time by Bugatti.

A two model range is being launched, both sharing the same curvaceous body. Top of the range TKR boasts more power than an F1 race car but with tractability for the road, while the 400bhp of the SKR is specifically tuned for long legged GT touring. Both offer scintillating performance with amazing acceleration and smooth docile road manners.

The launch of this new British Supercar, which will be held on St George's Day at an English manor house on the North West coast, will be a closed doors all ticket event. The event will include a descriptive launch and reveal, followed by acceleration and high speed demonstration drives at a nearby RAF airfield and cruising drives on fast public roads.
