There is a car, nay, not a car, but a SUPERCAR, that has been created in a far-off land whose sole purpose is to break the production-car land speed record. The name this SUPERCAR goes by is “The Bolt.”

Made by Keating Supercars, a prototype of “The Bolt” will go for the record in Ras al Khaimah in the United Arab Emirates before the end of the year. To be successful, it will need to demolish the 300 miles per hour barrier, a modern-day Bannister mile.

The managing director of Keating Supercars, Tony Keating, is so high on the project that he invested millions of dollars of his own money into the development of “The Bolt.” Keating said, “The car is unique with many of the components engineered in our own workshop. For real supercar enthusiasts, with very deep pockets, a twin turbo charged version of ‘The Bolt’ would achieve 0 to 60mph in 2 seconds and travel faster than any supercar in history.”
