Laraki Epitome : 1,750 bhp Supercar

Posted 21 February 2015 by

When it comes to supercars, or those limited edition superfast cars with a super high price tag, Italian car manufacturers are at the top of the hierarchy. But sometimes, you get surprisingly beautiful supercars from the least expected places, like Morocco.

Laraki, a sports car manufacturer based in the exotically beautiful Casablanca, Morocco, came out with an out of this world concept for a supercar in the 2013 Pebble Beach Concours D’Elegance: the Laraki Epitome. As of its unveiling, only nine units will be built. And with a $2 million price tag, it is easy to conclude that the Laraki Epitome will not be a mass-market model.

What makes the Laraki Epitome impressive is not the fact that a Moroccan manufacturer produces it—although the person behind the brand, Abdeslam Laraki, was known for the creation of ultra luxurious yachts that even the King of Bahrain fancies—it is the pure power behind all the oriental opulence this supercar seems to exude. The Laraki Epitome is fitted with a 7.0-litre Quad Turbocharged 16-valve OHV V8 engine that can go from zero to sixty miles per hour in 3.5 seconds, and can produce over 1,750 horsepower and 1,000 N-m of torque. Top speed for the Laraki Epitome clocks in at 205 miles per hour, and while not the highest number in the world, you can be assured that you will go quite fast in style.

Speaking of style, the Laraki Epitome is truly the epitome of flashy style. Or swagger, as the young ones might say. This supercar boasts of several air foils and air slashes that line it’s rather rounded nose, not very unlike a pimped-out Corvette. With black matte accents, ridges, and grills, you can be sure that the Laraki Epitome is not your run of the mill sports car, or not the most understated one, design-wise.

If you think all the luxury is left at the exterior of the supercar, you are dead wrong. The Laraki Epitome is fitted with racing seats in beautiful tan leather, as well as leather-trimmed steering wheels. We wish we can say more about the beauty of the interior, but a lot of the stuff fitted on the dashboard seems to have been directly lifted from every sci-fi epic with uber-futuristic cars ever.

The Laraki Epitome is recommended to run on racing gasoline (with a 110 octane rating, mind you) in order to produce the optimal amount of horsepower. If you blew every single cent you have on purchasing the car, you can still opt for regular gasoline, and produce 1,100 horsepower. Not bad, but for two million dollars, this supercar better run on water or apple juice.

It probably is a good thing that the Laraki Epitome remains a concept as of the writing of this article, or else we will probably sell everything just to get our hands on this beauty. With all the "awesomeness" packed into the Laraki Epitome, we will definitely be super envious of the nine ultra-stylish people who will get to own and drive it whenever they want.
