Tushek Supercars confirms plans to build a rival to the Lamborghini Aventador
24 April 2012

Slovenian supercar maker Tushek Supercars is planning to build a rival to the Lamborghini Aventador. Called Tushek Forego T700, the new model has a target kerb weight of less than 1000kg and power in excess of 700bhp.

Aljosa Tushek, founder of Tushek Supercars, also confirmed the new car would be able to pull up to 3.3g in extreme cornering. That's double the figure claimed for Tushek's first production car (and thought to be Slovenia's first supercar), the Renovatio T500, which made its world debut in Monaco at the Top Marques supercar show last weekend.

Powered by a 444bhp 4.2-litre Audi V8 engine, the Tushek Renovatio T500 hits 62mph from rest in a claimed 3.7 seconds on the way to a top speed just short of 200mph. Pricing starts at about £245,000 and Tushek plans on making just 30 units before focusing on the new Lamborghini rival.

Tushek told Autocar: "We only plan to make 30 pieces. Our two prototypes are sold and this is our first production car. It is 100 per cent made in Slovenia and is designed as a compromise between everyday use and track use. We expect the first customer cars to be ready by the end of the summer."

Lamborghini Aventador

The Lamborghini Aventador is big, bullish and ballistic, but it isn't perfect

I think I will Forego this car

"two prototypes are sold"....I think that says it all. Would you spend a quarter of a million on a super car' that hasn't been properly developed?

Let's see if they achieve their target because if they do then it would absolutely hammer an Aventador in a straight line at least. But I doubt they'll achieve it, and I'd still have the Lambo.

Why is this a 'rival' to the Lamborghini Aventador? Because they said so?

I will be shocked if this car becomes the next pagani considering its not attractive nor bonkers or another like that instead its just sort of there.

Co-incidentally, I'm drinking a Slovenian sauvignon blanc as I type and it's one of the best I've ever tasted. puklavec & friends from Waitrose £6.74 a bottle reduced from £8.99.
