The B2 is the second supercar model to be produced by the Russian
manufacturer Marussia. Following close on the heels of the Marussia
B1 which was revealed only months earlier, the B2 is a dramatically
styled supercar which was developed in-house by Marussia's design
team based in Moscow. The car was first displayed at the 2009
Frankfurt Motor Show, but these are the first pictures of the
car outside of the motorshow surroundings.
Befitting a mysterious Russian supercar the company is keeping
pretty quiet about what lies underneath the bodywork - and even
the materials used in the construction of the body is being
kept a secret, but supposedly it's a special type of plastic.
And while Marussia won't yet divulge the specifications or performance
offered by the drivetrain, they did reveal that both the engine
and gearbox are being developed in conjunction with the highly
respected powertrain engineering firm Cosworth.
Marussia are hoping to start delivering the first B2's to their
new owners in 2010 and aim to be producing 150 units a year.
And just like the B1, buyers of the Marussia B2 will have an
extensive customization and options list. Initially the car
will be offered for sale in most of continental Europe and the
Near East. By the end of 2010 the company hope to begin exports
to both the US and UK shores. A racing version is also in the
pipeline for late 2010.
