2002 Lamborghini Diablo Canto - L147

This project has been code named L147. Production was going to be limited to 400 units.

The L147 has been scrapped and will nto be produced.

It was designed by Zagato.
Source -
The Canto prototype was an exercise to study the potential designs for supercar replacements. Various versions of the Canto were shown to the president of the Lamborghini company but unfortunately, was not deemed acceptable to carry the Lamborghini name and enter into production. The company responsible for creating the designs was the famous coachbuilding factory, Zagato.

The proposed engine was a 6.0 liter, V-12 engine producing 640 horsepower. If it
would have entered into production, the engine would have been slightly detuned to 610 horsepower. This way the factory could have maintained the similar maintenance schedule used for the 530 horsepower Diablo models. The target weight for the canto was to be around 2200 pounds. A semi-automatic six-speed shifter by Valeo with steering-wheel based buttons was proposed to drive the engine and power the rear wheels.

The plans called to debut the Canto at the Geneva Auto Show but due to financial uncertainties and unable to meet the 2200 pound requirement, the Canto project slipped farther away from production.

has to be my favorite car right now

Ascari, creators of the stunning KZ1 supercar, has just revealed that it has a second car in development – the 600bhp A10 – a road going version of Ascari's Spanish GT Race Car.

Currently undergoing rigorous testing in advance of its Summer 2006 release, the A10 is the next generation Ascari dream drive. Engineers at Banbury and at the exclusive RaceResortAscari racetrack, are committed to ensuring this 220mph supercar delivers a knockout blow to the competition. And just like its highly desired KZ1 cousin, the 1280kg A10 will be just as elusive, with just 50 to be hand-built at Banbury, and even more exclusive with a price tag of around £350,000.

Power will come from a 600bhp 5-litre V8 engine, with a six speed manual as standard and a sequential gearbox available as an option. With a six-piece carbon fibre body, fixed rear wing and distinctive headlight configuration, the A10 is destined to be a head-turner.
Source - Ascari
British Supercar manufacturer, Ascari has produced the answer to the Ferrari Enzo FXX, but for keeps!

Whereas the Enzo FXX is not road legal, it was produced to be driven during track days only and costs just over £1 million (1.5m EUROS), the A10 is road legal so can be driven home and parked on your drive, to the envy of your neighbours for just £350,000 (522.000 EUROS).

Designed, engineered and hand built in Banbury, England the A10 has 625bhp and weighs in at around 1200kg, thanks to its lightweight carbon fibre bodywork. Reaching 60mph in just 2.8 seconds and 100mph in less than 6 seconds, the manufacturer claims the A10 is the fastest road going production car around a race track.

Only 10 are available and will be built to order.

The A10 is more than just a revamped KZ1, which has found success in its first year of competing in the GT3 in 2006. It has new body panels, a reworked engine and suspension, with extensive brake modifications to cope with the extra power. Lucky owners will also benefit, if they wish, from some luxuries such as remote central locking, electric windows and door mirrors, climate control and a Thatcham Category 1 alarm system.

The UK's newest Supercar will make its first ever appearance at the 2006 MPH show in Birmingham, England on 28 October.

MPH'06 kick starts on October 26th at Birmingham's NEC for 3 days before heading south to Earls Court in London between 2nd and 5th November.
