The Laraki Motors Epitome Concept blindsided pretty much everyone at the 2013 Pebble Beach Concourse d’Elegance over the weekend, and it’s easy to see why. It looks absolutely insane, and its representatives claim it packs 1,750 horsepower. But beyond the crazy carbon fiber paneling, the Epitome Concept features the chassis of a C6 Corvette — probably that of a Z06, as well as a highly modified 7.0L Chevy small block engine with a pair of turbos.
With all of its carbon fiber, the Epitome Concept tips the scales at a scant 2,800 pounds (roughly), and features two fuel tanks — one for standard pump gas, and another for 110 octane racing fuel. When running solely on pump, the Epitome is said to push out only 1,200 horsepower. But a push of a button remaps the ECU, allowing the car to use fuel from both tanks to push out the maximum estimated rating of 1,750 horsepower. And while it’s just a concept, Autoblog reports that Laraki Motors aims to birth nine examples of this theatrical means of transportation, at $2 million a pop, or nearly 39 times the base price of a 2014 Corvette Stingray.
