The teaser renderings you see above are for a supercar called the Keating Berus, and its makers are on a mission to create a potently fast production car. And that’s probably why the British automaker named it after the venomous Vipera Berus snake.
If you’ve never heard of Keating Supercars before, that’s perfectly understandable. You see, the only notable achievements it has to its name after 10 years of business is the track-only 1 342 kW bi-turbo LS7 V8-powered TKR (which was able to achieve 419 km/h at the Salt Lake Flats in California back in 2009) and a detuned road-legal SKR variant.
So, what about the Berus? Well, it will make use of an unspecified V8 (which will presumably be a variation of the LS7 with forced induction), which will apparently perform a 0-100 km/h sprint in 2,5 seconds with a top speed of 370 km/h. If you want an eco-friendly variant, the Berus will also be available in all-electric flavour, with between 150 and 300 kW and 1 429 N.m of torque on offer.
It is worth noting that Keating has failed to provide power figures for the V8 or performance figures for the electric version. Furthermore, the Berus is yet to receive a final design. But at the car’s official announcement at the National Centre for Motorsport Engineering, a half-scale model was at least on display.
