AmoritzGT DoniRosset: Brazilian-Born Supercar
Posted on , by Nick Preston
A design firm in Brazil started working on an ambitious new project a few years ago to build from scratch a new supercar which was capable of competing with the world’s finest, both in styling and performance.
The AmoritzGT DoniRosset, named after the late Donino “Doni” Rosset, is commissioned by his son William Denis Rosset.
This supercar, of which only one is known to currently exist, borrows elements from the Lamborghini Gallardo and the awesome Ferrari 458 Italia for its styling but still looks like something truly unique.
At the heart of this supercar is a monster 8.4-litre V10 engine which has been taken straight out of a Dodge Viper. Unlike the Dodge, however, the AmoritzGT mounts the V10 in a mid-engine position which gives for better weight distribution and handling.
Drive is delivered to the rear wheels by a six-speed sequential manual transmission from Mendeola. AmoritzGT has also developed a twin-turbocharger kit for the engine, which could see the power output rise beyond 1,000bhp. And if that wasn’t enough to wet your appetite, it can also run on pure ethanol should its owner desire.
Aiding the car’s handling is down to a sophisticated suspension setup which consists of double wishbones up front and a pushrod system at the rear, commonly found in Formula 1 racing cars. Also borrowed from motorsport racing is the cockpit’s central driving position. There is also room for two passengers with a pair of seats fitted behind the driver, just like in the McLaren F1 supercar.

The going price for this supercar is approximately $1 million and if enough buyers are found, around 50 examples will be built.
