The Tushek Renovatio T500 follows the script pretty closely. It derives a 2,500-lb (1133-kg ) curb weight from a combination of tubular chassis and carbon fiber/composite body. The low weight means that Tushek didn't have to get too fancy when shopping around for engines. The 4.2-liter Audi V-8's 450-hp output is downright measly when compared to some of the Renovatio's supercar contemporaries, but it still empowers 3.7-second 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) and 193 mph (311 km/h) claims. Eventually, we'll have a proper designation for exotic-but-not-that-exotic cars like this one, but for now, Tushek is obliged to call it a supercar.

We've seen a 1,100-hp electric supercar from Croatia. Brazil and Poland have chimed in with their thoughts on supercar design. The Netherlands and Denmark have represented. Now, Slovenia has a little something to say.
Truth be told, establishing a unique country of origin may be the most difficult part about building a "supercar" these days. While some supercar start-ups really wow us, the concept of supercar has been watered down to a predictable formula of dropping a derivatively styled composite body atop a lightweight chassis, throwing in a (possibly tweaked) V-8 engine from a more established automaker, and jotting down a ~3.5 second acceleration time and ~200 mph (322 km/h) top speed to round things out. Whammo! Your country just made it to the great world atlas of supercar manufacturing.
