The name Laraki may be familiar to some as Abdeslam Laraki, a famed Moroccan designer who is known for creating luxury yachts and setting up his eponymous Moroccan automotive company a few years ago. His latest project, Epitome, surprised many at the recent Pebble Beach show, where a monstrous supercar begged for attention on the green lawn. Using a C6 Corvette chassis as a base, the exterior shell is made from carbon fiber materials, aiding to reduce weight drastically. Inside the hood, there is a 7.0-liter Chevy Twin Turbo V8 engine, pumping out 1,200 horsepower when needed. On top of this, Laraki added two gas tanks to the engine, enabling gas to enter the engine at the flick of a button, increasing the maximum output to 1,750 horsepower.
