One of Switzerland's super beasts ever made

Some time ago, we had discussed through an article about a supercar made by an Australian company called Zacaria Supercars, and it turned out that the car was not the only replica of an F1 racing car that could be driven on the streets. Previously, a supercar with similar designs and specifications was also made before.

Europe has created many serious supercars, but in 2005 Leblanc Mirabeau was present and had its own class. This European's creation was thought to be eligible to compete on the race track in Le Mans, France, but differs from other racing cars, this car was also really worthied using on the highway. And at that time (in 2005) a Leblanc Mirabeau was offered at a price tag of $579,000 with an almost unlimited number of customization options - including the installation of a modern engine of Formula 1.

This unique supercar manufacturer is Wysstec GmbH. and although the Leblanc brand has the French name, in fact, this is made of an automotive company based in Zurich, Switzerland. Yes, the Leblanc Mirabeau is a racing car that is made and adapted to the FIA / Le Mans standards, so that it can be used at the Le Mans 24Hours race (if the car's owner wanna do that).

This open-top racing car sits on a frame made of titanium and magnesium and is then supported by a body made of lightweight Kevlar carbon fiber. For the standard version, the interior of this sports car mimics a racing car with almost none of the buttons on the dash. But all this can then be modified to meet the owner's personal preferences including the using of genuine leather in the cabin area, special engine upgrades, or anything else you can think of.

The company also knows how to make customers feel special. If interested parties want to make modifications to their Leblanc Mirabeau, they can contact the engineering department directly. It makes sense that paying more than half a million dollars for car owners' rights to a few extra benefits. Despite this, Leblanc brand maker is known among supercar manufacturers for good customer service and personalization.

To provide the power needed to legitimately call Mirabeau a racing car, the Swiss manufacturer then chose a 4.7-liter supercharged V8 engine made by Koenigsegg that is capable of spraying power up to 700 horsepower and 850 Nm of torque. As is well known, that Koenigsegg is known throughout the world for creating supercars by its own brand.

By using this engine, this car can be driven up to a top speed of 370 kph and only takes 2.6 seconds to accelerate from zero to 100 kph. And if the speed numbers of more than 225 mph from the standard engine is still considered inadequate, then you can do a small upgrade by installing a Formula 1 engine.
For those in harmony with true performance, it goes without saying that Leblanc Mirabeau is not just a car. In fact, it really is more than a supercar. This is a true race car and made in limited numbers (it's said only 50 units had ever made). The fact that it is designed for sightseeing only makes that more than a dream for serious enthusiasts of vehicles everywhere. It is not surprising when one of the owners of this unique supercar is the Sultan of Brunei, His Excellency Sultan Hasanal Bolkiah.

Unfortunately, now the existence of the manufacturer which was previously also known through the Leblanc Caroline car is unknown, whether it still survives in the business or bankrupt or what? The company's official website cannot be found anymore on the internet. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | NEW ATLAS | CAR IN MY DNA | WIKIPEDIA]
