BXR Motors’ Bailey Blade XTR Supercar Looks Like an American Shed-Built Wiesmann

BXR Motors is a small American car builder that noticeably raised its head for the first time in May of this year, when they first showed off their first ever product, a front-engined supercar called the Bailey Blade XTR.

Now, they have presented the project to the public for the very first time, detailed the specs and put their strategy for future expansion into context - the official site goes into a lot more detail.

The Bailey Blade XTR is meant to embody the philosophy of the “average American man,” and is touted as being the “reinvented American machine.” Style-wise, to me, it looks like a less serious take on the Wiesmann formula, which itself is an adaptation of the classic British sports car shape.

The XTR oozes American brawn, though, and it should, as it's said to be powered by a twin-turbo V8 motor, with a claimed 750 hp, and a top speed in excess of 200 mph (320 km/h); only the rear wheels are driven, via a six-speed manual gearbox for added connectedness. The benchmark sprint is said to come up in 3.2 seconds.

The technical stuff will be sorted more towards the car’s launch date, which is expected to arrive in the latter part of 2014.
