The first Brazilian supercar

The latest development photos of Brazil's premiere supercar have been released. Back in 2010, Amoritz GT showed us initial design sketches of the vehicle called the Amoritz GT DR7, but since the name has changed to DoniRosset.

The idea was born from entrepreneur William Denis Rosset who wanted to build a unique supercar as a gift for his father Donino Rosset (aka Doni). Upon meeting with Brazilian designer, Fernando Morita, owner of Amoritz GT, development started in 2008.

After presenting a full-scale model to a number of interested parties, Amoritz GT garnered enough interest for a limited production run. Just 50 units will be built (five already on order), each costing over $1 million (or approx Rp. 9.71 billion).

The DoniRosset will feature an 8.4 liter V10 from the Dodge Viper running on ethanol and fitted with twin-turbochargers boosting power to 1,007 hp. Coupled to this will be a six-speed sequential transmition from Mendeola. The DoniRosset measures 4.7 meters long and 2 meters wide.

On the outside, the car gets all the usual supercar refinements; LED daytime running lights, an extravagant five-exhaust setup and an engine viewing area. Interior layout follows the McLaren F1 with its central driving position flanked by two passengers. Other design features include LED lights and five centrally positioned exhaust pipe.

The logo is Doni’s signature and finished in 24 karat gold with two emerald stones either side. Amoritz GT are yet to get an example road registered.

Just one exists at the moment, from which they are taking moulds to be able to produce a second vehicle. It is hoped that this second vehicle will comence track tests some time in the near future. Interestingly, the Brazilian manufacturer hopes to produce the cars in a Brazilian mountain town and create a tourist attraction out of it.

Here's Fernando Morita comments on his design,  "The one-box body is in two-tone to emphasize the reference to a F1 car, where the dark parts give the idea of structural basis and the lighter color a second skin. The main theme was to merge form and function, then all the lines used are directly related to the mechanical parts. The interior and exterior are also connected, seeking simplicity and direction of lines converging to the pilot." *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | AMORITZ GT | GTSPIRIT.COM | WORLDCARFANS.COM]
