Laraki Motors Epitome 1750HP Concept, a 2M $ Supercar

This video features the world debut of the Laraki Epitome at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. It’s created by yacht builder Abdesslam Laraki, the Epitome has the engine of a C6 Corvette V8, but unlike the Corvette this machine is all supercar.

When it’s fueled by 91-octane gasoline, the Epitome can produce 1200 horsepower. When it’s fueled by 110-octane gasoline, the Epitome can produce an extraordinary 1750 horsepower! If that should come to pass, the price could move down from the concept model’s prospective $2 million price tag.

The 7.0-liter Chevy V8 has been given all new internals and hooked up to a pair of identical turbochargers. With that rig, the company spokesperson tells us the Epitome is good for 1,200 horsepower on pump gas.

But wait, there’s more. The Laraki actually has two gas tanks with one chamber meant for Regular and another intending to hold 110 octane. At the touch of a button, the Epitome will change its ECU map, allowing it to burn gas from both tanks, and raising the output to a nearly unbelievable 1,750 hp.

The company’s founder said that “the reaction is more than encouraging no one was expecting it.”Laraki plans to make 9 Epitomes to start but that could change in the future. What do you think of the Laraki Epitome?

Laraki was established in 1999.Its owner is Abdeslam Laraki, a Moroccan designer who started out creating luxurious yachts (the King of Bahrain is its main client) and also worked for Franco Sbarro. Laraki announced two concept models: the Fulgura in 2002, Borac in 2005, Epitome in 2013.
