999Motorsports Supersport


Straight from the land of muay thai and the Chao Phraya river comes a new track-ready sports car that’s ready to split some wigs blow the rest of us away. The Thailand-based company, 999Motorsports, has unveiled their latest piece of work, the Supersport.

The car, which has been designed to be a track car, has a tubular chassis, a carbon fiber and fiberglass body, and a set of 18" aluminum wheels among its chief details. Other features include an enormous rear wing, a giant rear diffuser, and gaping front air intakes. The interior of the car doesn’t leave much in the way of luxury features - it’s a track car, after all - but it does carry elements like a carbon fiber dashboard, a pair of racing seats with six-point harnesses, and an LCD instrument cluster.

With most of the standard features left out, the Supersport only weighs 2,095 lbs, which means that for all the things that were dropped, the car’s mid-mounted 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine more than makes up for it. This engine is mated to a five-speed sequential gearbox with a limited slip differential and reaches an output of 300 horsepower and 258 lb/ft of torque.

We don’t know if this car is going to hit the other side of the world, but over in Thailand, those guys should have plenty of fun with the 999Motorsports Supersport.
