AmoritzGT DoniRosset Brazilian Supercar

Brazil may not be known for its supercar infrastructure, but that could all change if more cars like the AmoritzGT DoniRosset start showing up. Despite its clunky name, the supercar is an exciting, stylish ride. And what more could you expect from the land of thongs, bikini waxing and lusty supermodels.

The DoniRosset may not supplant Adriana Lima as the most beautiful thing to come out of Brazil, but luckily, it's not really competing with her. And in terms of the real competition, the DoniRosset can hold its own. While there's some clear influence from Lamborghini in the overall shape, and maybe even a little Marussia in the face, the car is original and attractive enough to not dismiss as 'another derivative supercar the world didn't need.'

Elements we look at with admiration include the five-tip, center-mounted exhaust; deep air intakes; distinct headlamps; and glass engine panel. That glass panel gives you a peek at the 8.4-liter V-10 Dodge Viper engine (we assume it's a last-generation Viper engine, so we'll stick with calling it Dodge). AmoritzGT moves the engine back behind the seats and reportedly has a twin-turbo kit in the works that can boost output up over 1,000 hp.

Inside, the driver sits in the middle with two passengers in back to his sides.

Though the DoniRosset was designed as a one-off collaboration between entrepreneur William Denis Rosset and AmoritzGT's owner Fernando Morita, a run of as many as 50 models is planned. Rosset originally wanted to design a one-off for his father Donino Rosset (hence the name), but upon showing the model to his friends, immediately drummed up interest and orders. Clearly he has a wealthy circle, because the price is said to be around $1 million.

No word on how much performance those million bucks will give you, but with 1,000-hp and a carbon fiber/aluminum build, it should be more than enough to cement the supercar moniker.

As with similar cars, we'll believe it when it's actually driving. Nice effort so far, though.
