The Bolt is the name of a new Keating Supercars’ car. ザ・ボルトって響きからR35のスペシャルモデルかと思ってしまいました

British supercar manufacturer Keating is back with a new model called ‘The Bolt.’ When we hear of the name “Bolt”, GT-R Otaku thinks of the goldern R35… The Bolt is Keating’s follow up to its previous SKR, TKR and ZKR supercars, all of which feature a powerplant sourced from General Motors.

The Bolt will carry a 7.0-liter LS7 V-8 delivering 505 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque. The company has revealed that The Bolt will be able to accelerate from 0-60 mph in just 2.0 seconds and hit a top speed in excess of 300 mph. Construction is par for the course of any modern supercar: a carbon fiber and Kevlar body, aluminum spaceframe chassis and a flat undertray to reduce drag. Power in The Bolt is directed to the rear wheels only, via a six-speed transaxle.

Despite having revealed three models already, Keating is said to have sold only around 15 examples since the launch of the first one back in 2006. That makes sense, as Keating only has three staff building the cars. They claim that each cars are built specifically to customer order and no matter what a customer’s personal preferences may be, they can be met. Orders for The Bolt are now being taken. A launch date is yet to be announced.

London supercars are basically hated… ロンドンではスーパーカーが嫌われる?

London has become a favorite summer destination for the “rich” of Middle East in the past few years. If you search “London Supercar” on YouTube, as many of you have already done, there are many video clips. They fly their supercars into London and speed around the luxurious parts of the town. We see them driving around in the south of France as well. Ah, such tough life…lol

It may be true that supercar noise is disturbing the Londoners’ sleep but… they retaliate by blocking a Lamborghini Aventador with a bike… intentionally?!

R35 wasn’t attacked but poor Ferrari 458 Italia Spyder was attacked with an egg…

Londoners be more tolerant as these boys are spending lots of money in town…

YouTubeで「London Supercar」と検索すれば、中東系大富豪たちが様々なスーパーカーでロンドンの高級エリアを疾走しているたくさんの動画に出くわします。なんでも夏休みの間、クルマを母国から空輸して遊んでいるんですって・・・。ロンドンに限らず、南仏でも多いですよねぇ。いやはや、遊びのスケールが違います(笑)。
