More than 1200 HP

Weber is ready to introduce the F1 (FasterOne) production version, following a concept showed back in 2008.

It was developed by former BMW and Sauber F1 engineers who installed a twin-turbo 5.6-liter V10 engine delivering more than 1,200 HP (883 kW) at 7,000 rpm and 1,250 Nm (922 lb-ft) of torque at 4,200 rpm. The car has a dry weight of just over 1,250 kg (2,756 lbs) which means it can provide a power-to-weight ratio of 0.96 HP / kg. The supercar is 4500 mm long, 2040 mm wide and 1150 mm tall.

Power is sent to an in-house all-wheel drive system through a proprietary 6-speed, semi-automated sequential gearbox with steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters. Automatic launch control and active all-wheel drive systems are part of the package. It boasts independent front and rear suspension and has a 2900mm wheelbase with a track width of 1625mm front and 1606mm rear.

The Weber F1 rides on 20-inch lightweight alloys wrapped around in Pirelli high-performance tires measuring 285/25 ZR 20 front and 325/25 ZR 20 rear. Stopping the supercar are 12-piston aluminum fixed calipers with vented ceramic discs measuring 380 x 34 mm on all four corners.

The carbon fiber chassis of the vehicle weighs just 65 kg (143 lbs) while the entire outer body is also manufactured from carbon. Air brake is available through a rear wing deploying into fully vertical position in just 50 milliseconds.

And now for the performance numbers. The Weber F1 hits 62 mph (100 km/h) in 2.5 seconds, 0-200 km/h (0-124 mph) in 6.6 seconds and 0-300 km/h (0-186 mph) in 16.2 seconds, on its way to a top speed of more than 400 km/h (248.55 mph).

Production starts next month with pricing available upon request.

Swiss Precision Creates the World’s Fastest Street-Legal Four Wheel Drive Supersports Car

The Weber F1 is the world’s fastest and lightest street legal four wheel drive supersports car ever built by engineers coming from the former BMW and Sauber Petronas Formula 1 team. Its V10 engine produces over 1200HP whereas its empty weight is just over 1250kg. Thanks to its exceptional power-to-weight ratio of 0.96 hp per kilogram, intelligent all-wheel drive and sophisticated aerodynamic properties the mid-engine racer sprints to 300 km/h in just 16.2 seconds and reaches a top speed of more than 400 km/h. It reaches the sprint from 0-100 km/h in less the 2.5 seconds. It features a full carbon fiber chassis and a monocoque body.

The first prototype of the F1 was launched in 2007.

After intensive testing and developing over the last few years we would like to present to you the new F1. The first production car will be launched in April 2013.

The latest F1 has now a full carbon fibre moncoque chassis as well as new twin turbo engine producing over 1200 HP. Also the drive shaft (with now shorter gear ratios) – an inhouse development by Weber - has been improved for increased durability as well as drivability of the car.

Finally Richard Amiel from New York completly redesigned the car which gives it a more agile and aggressive look.

Weber has also produced several components for the KERS (Kinetic Energy Recovery System) which is used in Formula One (e.g. by BMW). This technology will also be used on the Weber F1 to launch the most powerfull Hybrid car ever built (in excess of 1600 HP). This will revolutionise the super sports car industry. For this phase Weber is still looking for investors.
