The new car version and its soft, the Swedish kroner, were last Wednesday in South Portland, United Kingdom. The two are on a steel space frame structure, but it allows a structure made of carbon fiber to support the weight even more. The bodies are made of fiberglass, carbon fiber, but also the facilities are available as an option. These vehicles are Keating 4.31 m long, 1.87 m wide and 1.15 m in height. The British automobile manufacturer is already orders for them, but the supplies did not occur by the end of the year. No hurry, because the customers have to wait for their luck in any case: SKR and the TKR is being built in a limited quantity to them and to ensure that only quality standards.
In the first of two runs on the Salt Lake Flats in California last month, the remarkable 7.0 litre, 1800 BHP Keating TKR smashed the current record, adding an extra 3 mph to the top speed of existing title holder, the Shelby Aero TT.The TKR will probably have the LS7 engine as its base, but two turbochargers are expected to make its power skyrocket to 1,500 hp. This number can be even higher, since the supercar is still under development.Now the Manchester based company must do it again to ensure entry in the Guinness Book of World Records.
But before it returns to California, the breathtaking Keating TKR will make its MPH show debut in London tomorrow in front of capacity crowds.
Tony Keating, founder of Keating Supercars, said: “The Keating TKR realises our ambition to take on the world’s finest supercars and win. This car rivals them all for looks, handling, performance and exclusivity. And best of all, it’s British.”
