Mention the Eifel region of western Germany to any motorsport fan and their mind will instantly jump to the Nürburgring, swiftly sending them into daydream-land. But Eifel also plays home to CCG Automotive, the company responsible for this hand-built 730bhp supercar.
Known as the Custom GT, this powerful beast combines a 7.0-litre turbocharged V8 with a weight of just 1040kg, thanks to a tubular spaceframe and bodywork made from glassfibre or optional carbonfibre. All 730 horses are sent to the rear wheels, leading to a 0-62mph sprint of 3.3 seconds and a top speed of between 185 and 200mph, depending on gear ratios.
Less outrageous engine options are also available: a naturally aspirated version of the GM-sourced 7.0-litre (0-62mph in 3.5 seconds) is available, alongside a 434bhp 6.0-litre V8 and even an engine which can run on a mixture of E85 Bioethanol and LPG. All engines put their power onto the road via a traditional six-speed manual gearbox.
If the 730bhp version isn’t hardcore enough, there will be a track-focused model released next spring. The Custom GT Competition will have its weight stripped below the 1000kg mark, and will gain more aggressive ECU mapping and an optimised suspension set-up.
Prices for the Custom GT begin at €113,500 (almost exactly £100,000) for the 6.0-litre base model.
