Wysstec

Swiss Car Manufacturer, Wysstec, has confirmed that it will be participating in the 'luxury' motoring event, Top Marques Monaco, 22-25 April 2004. This will be the first time that Wysstec, which manufactures the LeBlanc Caroline GTR, has exhibited at any event.

Other exhibitors at Top Marques include; Spyker, Koenigsegg, Pagani, Lotus, Laraki, Lamborghini, Bentley, Rolls Royce, Mercedes, Morgan and Carat Duchatelet.

Rolf Wyss of Wysstec said: "The Leblanc Caroline GTR is a racing-like supercar of which we will produce one or two per year. With a price tag of around €400,000, this high performance vehicle, which goes from 0-60 in under three seconds, is relevant to a very specific audience. I am looking forward to the reaction that we will receive at Top Marques and am also hoping to be able to give visitors details of our next model. "

Event Director, David Bagley of Top Marques said: "We are delighted to be welcoming Wysstec and the LeBlanc Caroline GTR to Top Marques Monaco. This car is exceptional in terms of style and exclusivity and truly embodies the spirit of the event which is taking place in the Grimaldi Forum ."

Bagley continues: "This intimate event will give motoring enthusiasts the opportunity to see the world's finest vehicles in terms of design and performance. In addition to seeing some of the world's most exclusive and rare super cars, visitors may be able to take test drives in some of the vehicles around Monaco ."

400k Euro for that!

Carbon fibre or not, that's a tad optimistic (by about 350k Euro) I reckon.

Doesn't look as good as an Ultima, either.

It definitely doesnt look as good as an Ultima. Think what kind of Ultima you could build with 300k.

Tssss.... 400k!
Yeah, it will stay exclusive that way!
Wake up mister Wyssguy! This looks like a kit-car, and as such is way too expensive.
Also it has a 2 litre 4 cilinder (twin-turbo) engine, not even a V8 or V12...
This car doesn't make any sense to me.

400K... Am I missing something here? This is a p**s take right? 512 bhp from a 2 ltr turbo? This say s engine rebuilds every 200 miles to me. And the looks... ugh... the cockpit bubble is far too bulbous and out of proportion with the rest of the car. An Ultima is much better looking than this IMHO. And for 400K a car you d think they could get a decent web site sorted out and translate the pigeon English correctly Compare the slick PR and customer service facilities provided by McLaren for the F1 to the first impressions you get from this lot by going to their website.

512BHP, 750KG, 0-60 2.7s = Impressive.

On their website, it says the Leblanc GTR uses slicks to achieve 0-100 in 5 secs. So does it use slicks to achieve the 2.7 to 60?

Has anyone achieve similar or better times in the Ultima GTR with slicks on?
