Britain can look forward to a new supercar to rival the likes of the McLaren F1 following the unveiling of images of Motorcity Europe’s MC1

The sensational-looking supercar will be powered by a V10 600bhp motor and its unique design features include classic supercar motifs and jet fighter winglets. It will have a carbon monocoque body and scissor doors.

Set to be released in 2011, the MC1 was designed by British designer and Motorcity Europe director David Hilton who has worked on a long line of famous motors, including the L-GT Supercar, Ford Focus RS and ST. He was also co-designer of the 2007 Car of the Year, the S-Max.

"This first concept was digitally produced in only 3 months from a single sketch and a basic package," says Hilton of the MC1.

"Initially I wanted to demonstrate that, in a short time, one designer can create and build a fresh design which is still possible for street development. This has helped immensely in order to quickly sell the concept, under limited budget constraints.
Hilton concludes: “In terms of future design, I believe we are going to see more dynamic and sculptural surfaces executed with a much higher demand on perceived and real quality elements."








Milton Keynes-based C2P Automotive is thought to top the list to engineer the car, and is understood to already have a prototype out and about on the roads.

MotorCity Europe seems to be keeping any further information about the MC1 under wraps, but if you want to find out more about the company visit: motorcityeurope.com

Engine: 6.0 litre all-aloy V10
Max power: 600bhp at 8,500rpm
Transmission: Six-speed double-clutch, rear-wheel drive
Weight: 1,450kg
0-60mph: 4.5seconds
Top speed: 200mph
Price: £250,000
