Desde Espanya con Amor: 2013 Tramontana XTR (Powered by Mercedes-Benz)

Tramontana, which most literally translates to “north wind,” is also the name of the Spanish automaker responsible for the creation pictured above. Dubbed the XTR, the early sketches of this road legal track car take note from Ariel, KTM and Aspid among others makers.

What really makes this particular track car extra special is that these crazy Spaniards want to shove an 876bhp (888PS) V12 underneath the hood. Crazy? Yes, but this isn’t the first time Tramontana is placing an ungodly amount of horsepower into a car the weight of a large dog.

The former Tramontana R was good for 700bhp thanks to a twin-turbo V12 and only weighed in at around 3,000 lbs (1360 kg). This put the 0-60 mph (96km/h) time at 3.6 seconds and top speed at 214 mph (344 km/h).

The new XTR keeps the same shape as its predecessor, but the Mercedes sourced twin-turbocharged 5.5-liter V12 will now be good for the aforementioned 876-horses

The XTR model will be launched by the end of 2012 with a base price of $514,000 (€420,000).
