Sportec is no stranger to the exclusive Salon Privé show; last year the SPR1 made its UK debut at the Hurlingham club. For 2010 it is back with an improved model; the SPR1R.

While the T80M engine is carried over - a 3.6-litre, 24-valve, bi-turbo, flat-six - its 846bhp now has less weight to move. According to Sportec 50kg has been shed, taking the overall weight to 1,295kg. That translates to a claimed 0-62mph time of just three seconds and 186mph comes up in 18.9 seconds - although the 'over 236mph' top speed remains unchanged.

Standard equipment includes adjustable traction control and an on-board data logger. These functions are accessed by touch screen in the centre console, which also provides real time engine data. There are 20-inch alloy wheels, Sportec styling touches and a leather/Alcantara interior.

The Salon Privé show runs from 21 to 23 July.

We're not related to Sarah Conor, but we're terrified of the T80, which has surely been sent from the future to kill electric cars.
