The brand new British supercar set for 2017 release

A new British marque, Keating, will release its first supercar offering in 2017 at the top Marques Monaco show. The brand previously presented the ‘Bolt’, however it never made production.

The new ‘Berus’ supercar will be launched in two variants; a naturally aspirated V8 and a fully electric version. The V8 engine has a claimed power output of 650bhp, while the electric model delivers 403bhp with 1054lb ft of torque. A 2,000bhp twin-turbo version is rumoured for later release.

Anthony Keating, the company’s founder, says the new sports car will be capable of 0-60mph in 2.4 seconds and a flat out speed of 230mph. The design of the car is being kept under wraps, however renderings suggest the design will take inspiration from the car’s name (Vipera Berus) and feature snake-like, sharp, sleek lines.

The Berus should feature advanced technology and aerodynamics, as Dr Keating and the University of Boston have combined efforts for the design, engineering and production of the new car.

Keep your eyes peeled for the launch in 2017. Pricing and availability will be released towards the end of 2016.
