Russian-designed Finnish-built Marussia B2 sportscar sold out
You’ve probably heard of the Russian supercar Marussia B2, a car that impressed everyone with its eye catching design and remarkable performances. Built in Finland and designed in Russia, it was supposed to be built in a limited run of just 500 units and apparently all cars have been already sold out according to a recent report.
The Dutch site “Telegraaf” states that the 500 pre-orders for this stunningly looking sportscar have been already filled. This is actually the second Marussia supercar to go into production, after the Marussia B1 and it was first presented for the first time in 2009 at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
Weighting at around 1,100 kg (2425 lbs) and boasting a 2.8-liter turbocharged V6 engine that can deliver a maximum of 414 HP (309 kW) and 600 Nm (442 lb-ft) of torque, the vehicle reaches a top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph). The time it takes to reach 100 km/h (62 mph) from a standstill is quite stunning, really, for its pretty modest engine – just 3.8 seconds.
The production of this interesting 4-wheeler will reportedly start during the spring of 2013. The Marussia B2 is perhaps one of the first steps Russia is taking towards the world of high performance automotive industry.
