Genty Akylone supercar: because the French want to be relevant too

The Italians have a supercar. The Germans have a supercar. The Americans have a supercar. The Japanese have a supercar. The French? The French want to have a supercar, which is where Genty Automobile steps into the picture with the Akylone. Genty is a French start-up out of St. Yorre that wants to go toe-to-toe with the automobile elite of the world. Claiming that their 4.8 liter twin-turbo V8 can crank out more than 1,000 horsepower and 940 foot-pounds of torque, the Genty Akylone’s sleek design hints at inspiration from other established brands like Lamborghini and Koenigsegg. The rear-wheel-drive two-seater has a seven speed sequential gear box and along with its 2,425 pound curb weight it supposedly flies from 0 to 62 mph in 2.7 seconds and 9.8 seconds for the quarter mile.

Did I mention that the video above and pictures below are all computer generated? That’s right, Genty hasn’t actually produced an Akylone yet, so its design is a concept and its supposed claims of insane horsepower and blazing speeds are all theoretical. I should also mention that in theory this car will never see the light of day because in theory the French will surrender to the challenge the moment the first obstacle or lightsaber is posed to Genty. Either way, Genty Automobile is hoping to get some orders in at a currently undisclosed price before producing a working concept and has provided a nice gallery of CGI car porn images of the Akylone for your viewing pleasure.

    1. Yeah, Genty is making a lot of promises, some of which are straight up outlandish. The engine alone is entirely magical as they’ve yet to produce even a model for THAT. Oh France…
