The Spirra supercar will be launched this summer - nine years after the original concept was unveiled.

The Spirra is the first South Korean built supercar. It is rear-drive, mid-engined and its body is made from carbonfibre, which encloses a spaceframe. No weight for the car has been released.

It has a six-speed manual gearbox and the quickest version goes from 0-62mph in 3.5sec.

The Spirra has had a troubled birth. The initial concept was called the Proto Motors PS-II prototype. Proto Motors was then bought out by the Oullim Group and renamed Oullim Motors).

Looks good, is it for sale in the UK?

Only a 2.7 litre Hyundai V6? Why not the award-winning Tau V8 instead?

16 June 2010

Actually looks very good, would like to see the interior though. Similar in looks to a number of existing cars Noble M400 and Lotus Evora amongst others.

No doubt will be reliable, but looks dated already.

Bottom line is will it be any good to drive?

16 June 2010

A supercar with a 5 year warranty will do well.

Can't we have a North Korean supercar?

1000 quid and nuclear-powered seems a lot more exciting...

Cue Team America jokes...

So would it be called the K-J-I special and have a voice saying "Ah Herro" every time you put the key in the ignition?

You haven't seen Team America have you?

Perhaps you should research before trying to correct someone, otherwise you just look a little stupid...
