Just 10 of these 500bhp, 186mph Sunred SR08 supercars will be made
2 July 2007

Here’s one sure-fire way to make a Bugatti Veyron seem common – buy one of these Sunred SR08 racing cars.Just 10 of these bespoke machines will be on sale to the public, to homologate the car for racing in the FIA GT series.The Sunred promises to be every bit as extreme as it looks, too. It uses a carbonfibre monocoque, with a mid-mounted 4.0-litre Judd V10 producing around 500bhp and mated to a six-speed sequential gearbox.Given that the SR08 weighs just 1100kg, performance should be visceral, with 0-62mph taking a claimed 3.5sec. Top speed is 186mph.The Sunred sits on 18-inch alloys, behind which sit whopping 380mm carbon-ceramic brake discs with six-piston calipers. Suspension is by double wishbones with adjustable Ohlins dampers.There’s no word on the price, but we suspect it’ll be every bit as extreme as the looks and performance.
