Europe has a long a proud history of producing supercars. Italy has given the world such greats as the Ferrari F50 and the Lamborghini Gallardo, Great Britain has contributed the Aston Martin DBS and Sweden can boast the illustrious Koenigsegg CC. But for many years petrol-heads have been left feeling like a piece of the puzzle is missing. Sleepless nights have been had mulling over the eternal question: when will Slovenia come to the party?
Fear no longer my friends! Your prayers have finally been answered with the news that Slovenia’s first supercar, the Tushek Renovatio T500 will be coming to our shores very soon! Never before seen (or heard of for that matter) in the UK, the Renovatio T500 is a mid-engined, light weight, highly advanced supercar and the brain-child of company founder and racing driver Aljosa Tushek. Equally at home on the road as it is on the track, this hand-built £235,000 monster is made to order in Slovenia and has a simmering 4.2-litre 444BHP Audi-derived V8 engine that will breeze from 0-62MPH in a Ferrari California-rivalling 3.7 seconds. With a top speed of 193MPH, underestimate this newcomer at your peril! Despite its obscure roots, the Renovatio T500 is no cheap imitation. It will make its UK debut at the Salon Privé supercar show in September 2012.
