Bulleta Motors RF22 29.8.2013

Slated to go into production next year

California-based Bulleta Motors has unveiled their upcoming RF22 sports car.

Named after Lockheed Martin's F-22 Raptor, the RF22 is based on the Lotus Evora and has unique composite - carbon fiber is optional - body that was created by Samir Sadikhov who has previously penned the Aston Martin DBC and Cadillac C-Ville concepts.

While the model is instantly recognizable as an Evora, it has been equipped with an aggressive front fascia with bi-xenon headlights and a front lip spoiler. The RF22 also has a stylish rear end with a prominent diffuser and a center-mounted dual exhaust system. Other highlights include a roof scoop, carbon ceramic brakes and 19-inch carbon fiber wheels with Michelin Super Sport tires.

Motivation will be provided by a supercharged 3.5-liter V6 engine that develops 505 bhp (376 kW) and 410 lb-ft (555 Nm) of torque. This should enable the 2,920 lb (1,363 kg) sports car to accelerate from 0-60 mph in just 3.6 seconds.

There's no word on how much the RF22 will cost but each buyer will receive a "custom made, individually numbered, Swiss mechanical chronograph time piece, matching the serial number of its companion car."

RF22.. lotus under skinned beast.. kind of a dated shape but also familiar and kinda exotic looking.. is a head turner while powering through the curves.

Bro if Gumpert couldn't stay alive making something entirely new and different(except for the Engine), how do you think will you survive? Beautiful car though, would be great to hear about its success.

"Named after Lockheed Martin's F-22 Raptor, the RF22..." Bulletta photochoppers don't know their 5th Gen fighters because that there behind the car is an F-35 not an F-22. RF35? Google image search "f-35 headon" for the original image.
