Despite the dismal world economy, and general all-round lack of money, it seems as if there is a never ending line of people ready to throw their life savings into the act of trying to make a supercar company from scratch.

The latest outfit hoping to take on the established players in the supercar market are from Brazil. And the car they hope will make them rich(er) and famous is called the Rossin-Bertin Vorax.

The car's name is made up from the surnames of the two men who conceived the idea. Fharys Rossin - an ex-GM designer, and Natalino Bertin - a young guy with plenty of spare cash because his family owns a very successful slaughterhouse business.

The fact that one of the pair knows the car business is good. And the fact the other one has plenty of disposable cash is also a promising sign that this company could actually get further than the 3D modeling or prototype stage.

The car itself is a dramatic and menacing looking coupe (a convertible is to follow later). The lines are fairly unique, and Rossin has done a good job of making the car look different from most other generic supercar prototypes. The bodywork is formed from carbon fiber, while the chassis is an aluminium spaceframe unit.

Powering the Rossin-Bertin Vorax is a 5.0 litre V10 borrowed from the BMW M5. This engine will be offered in two different flavors. First up is the naturally aspirated model which develops 570 hp and allows for a 0-62 mph (100km/h) time of 3.8 seconds, top speed is 205 mph (330 km/h). The top spec model of the Rossin-Bertin Vorax is the supercharged version. This puts out 750 hp and can get to 62 mph (100km/h) in 3.6 seconds. Top speed is 231 mph (372 km/h).

Of course at the moment these figures are all theory and conjecture. It won't be until the first cars roll off the production line at the new factory in Blumenau, Brazil in late 2011 or early 2012 that the real world performance numbers will be known.
