On July 26, 2018, Austrian company Milan Motorsport GmbH revealed its new hypercar, the MILAN RED. The car, named after the bird of prey red kyte, is powered by a 6.2 liter quad- turbocharged V8 gasoline engine that produces 1,325 break horsepower and 1032.6 pound feet of torque. Power is directed at the rear wheels via a 7 gear dual clutch transmission. Its three selectable drive modes are Glide, Hunt and Attack. The car's maximum speed is expected to reach 400 km/h (246.5 mph), the sprint from zero to 100 km/h (62 mph) should take 2.47 seconds.

The car, designed to be a show-stopper according to CEO Markus Fux, is a showpiece of Austrian engineering, with many parts sourced from local companies, like the engine, which was developed by Graz-based AVL, the world's largest independent company for the development of powertrain systems with internal combustion engines. Kapfenberg-based Pankl Racing Systems provides wheel carriers made from titanium, while the carbon-made wishbones -a world premiere- are made by Peak Technologies in Upper Austria.

The car, set to cost around $2 Million, will be available exclusively to 99 select customers.
