Dagger GT Project Making Progress

The world of supercars is full of black holes- project that promise to take you to the moon but never manage to see the light of day. Back in July, when the Dagger GT hypercar was announced, this seemed to be one of them. You couldn’t blame us for not trusting the promise of a 2,000 hp streetable vehicle.

However, TranStar Racing, the company behind the project now comes to offer us a new set of renderings of the vehicle to keep the fire burning.

Let’s take a few moments to remember what the vehicle packs under the hood. Hyperpowering the car is a 572 multi-fuel unit (it can run on petrol, methanol, hydrogen or ethanol) that uses twin turbocharging to deliver 2,028 hp and a peak torque of 2,710 Nm (2,000 lb-ft).

The unit comes from Nelson Racing Engines, with TranStar recently announcing that is is working on an even beefier version that will allow the driver to get a dose of 2,500 hp. Of course, such an output requires a special gearbox that can handle all the stress, with a TranStar/Menderola six-speed transmission having received this job.

All this muscle promises to offer the vehicle the ability to leave the 62 mph mark behind in 1.5 seconds and offer a top speed of 300 mph (483 km/h). As for the quarter mile run, this will be dealt with in 6.7 seconds. However, the company promises that this won’t just be a straight line performer, as it aims to break the Nurburgring record.

Only 15 mortals will get to enjoy the Dagger GT, with each one of them having to pay a (modest, if we consider the performance) price of $450,000 (EUR360,000). TranStar Racing promises to bring the car to the world next year.
