The XCS Fusion Cobra replica has been design by the team behind the Dax
Rush, and features the patented anti-roll system from the aforementioned
Caterham Seven clone. It also happens to feature a tubular spaceframe
chassis and switchable electrically assisted steering. Oh, and a Chevrolet
LS3 V8, which with the aid of a Supercharger, develops up to 639bhp. And the car
weighs 1080kg, resulting in a Bugatti Veyron-beating 590bhp per tonne.
It's quick, certainly, but can it beat the Jaguar XKR-S in a drag race?
