The Ivicta S1 is a British-made car that recently added rear seats.

You can choose from a few Ford-sourced V8s, with the most powerful producing 600 horsepower and capable of delivering a 0-60 time in less than 4 seconds.

How exclusive is it, you ask? Well, The company makes only one product, and only builds one per month.

Furai is Japanese for “sound of the wind.”

It’s tuned to run on 100% E100 ethanol produced in partnership by British Petroleum.

It’ll be a mid-engine, rotary car built on top of a Courage C65 chassis that Mazda used to run in the American Le Mans Series. The three-rotor Wankel engine tuned to run on the ethanol will pump out about 450hp.

The looks appear to be similar to the supercar Zonda made by Pagani, but also has it’s own unique characteristics that make it look very streamline.
