2011 Artega GT: Today’s Miura?

Posted in Compact Cars, Concept Cars, Fast Cars, Favorite Cars, Fisker, Volkswagen by Dustin Driver | July 8th, 2010 | 4 Responses |

It’s often said that with today’s safety standards, it’s impossible to design a car with the stunning and savage grace of the Lamborghini Miura. Henrik Fisker would say otherwise. This is the Artega GT, the designer’s compact, mid-engined supercar. The thing exudes brutal beauty. Its muscular form terrifies asphalt, threatens twisty roads. Sure, it’s not as graceful and sleek as the Miura, but I think it’s as close as we’re gonna get in this era of hyper safety standards. Performance wise, the Artega GT would give the Miura a run for its money. The 2,400-pound sports car can hit 60 miles per hour in 4.8 seconds and reach a 170 mph terminal velocity—without achieving liftoff. It’s powered by a 300-horsepower, 3.6-liter VW V6, which isn’t the sexiest power plant around, but it gets the job done. Price? A steal at less than $90,000. The Artega GT is supposed to be available late this year. Hit the jump for more pics.

    Not even close to being the “next” Miura. This car is simply a collection of design cues from other cars blended together to give it smooth lines. Don’t even try to disgrace the Miura by placing it in the same category as this thing.

    I say it looks a heck of a lot more like a Lotus.

    No, a cross between the last model of the Toyota Supra and a Porsche 911.
