Edonis supercar is a creation of B. Engineering, a company run
by Jean Marc Borel. The Edonis was intended as a demonstration
of the design and prototype abilities of his company. The B.
Engineering Edonis is a genuine supercar with a 0-60 time under
4 seconds, and a maximum speed of 225 mph.
The Edonis cannot be described as a beautiful car, but it certainly
eye catching. Its angular, complicated lines crash awkwardly
together in a chaotic fashion, this trend is evident from almost
every angle. The headlights give the impression of tiredness,
or even depression.
The Edonis has little to be sad about. Twin turbochargers
feed a 3.7 litre V-12 engine to create a whopping 680 bhp at
8,000 rpm. All this power is run through a six-speed manual
Using a monocoque
built from carbon
fiber the Edonis is very strong and light. All the cosmetic
exterior body panels are aluminum. To reduce weight further
aluminum brake calipers are used.
To save even more space and weight the Edonis rides on Michelin
PAX run-flat tires, this means a spare wheel is surplus to requirement.
