If I Were A Superhero, Here's How I'd Roll: The Tramontana R-edition
Talk about a car Batman would drive!! Spain's just released Tramontana R-edition doesn't even look like a real vehicle, but it is.
Not only does it have the design and aesthetics of a vehicle not of this earth (lots of carbon fiber), but it combines aeronautical technology with a Formula 1 Race car. It has a top speed of 720 Hp and goes from 0-60 mph (100Km/h) in 3.6 seconds! In a limited edition of 12 and costing a cool half million dollars, I've got tons of photos for you here.
a.d. Tramontana is an European Company located on the Costa Brava (Spain) which manufactures an exclusive tailor-made supercar called Tramontana. It is a combination of a Formula 1 racing car and a fighter jet powered by a V12 engine which produces a maximum of 720 hp.
