Meet Inferno Exotic Car: 1,400bhp, 0-62mph in 3 seconds and a stretchable metal body

Inferno Exotic Car Stretchable Metal Body

Forget every other car you’ve ever wanted to buy. The only car you should really want is the new Inferno Exotic Car, a super sports car that’s coming out of Mexico. Shown at the recent Expo Bancomer technology event, Inferno’s Exotic Car roadster looks stunning and also has some fascinating features. Regardless of whether you’re into supercars, or actually have the budget to accommodate such passions, the Exotic Car should certainly impress you.

Packing a twin-turbo V8 engine, the Exotic Car packs quite a punch under that hood, Top Gear reports: 670 torques and 1,400bhp horsepower will get you to 62mph in under three seconds and up to a top speed of 245mph.

But it’s not just the overall design and engine that impress us. The actual hood is made of a particular zinc-aluminum-silver alloy known as “metal foam.” This type of metal is stretchable while also being strong as armor. That’s something you don’t see every day.

The foam can stretch up to 100 times its original size, which means it’ll absorb impacts without affecting its fundamental physical properties. While Top Gear suggests the car is indestructible, you probably don’t want to drive this Inferno car at top speed head on into an obstacle on the road.

The car blog notes that Antonio Ferrarioli, who has designed parts for Lamborghini in the past, is responsible for the car’s design.

Production of the Exotic Car will start next year, but it’s too early to talk about retail prices for this project.
