Poland — The super car market has grown significantly larger in the past decade, as globalisation allows more people to increase their wealth.

And as the spending power of motorists increases, so do the types of cars on sale.

What you see here is Poland's first super car, whose design is inspired by jet fighters (and possibly an Italian super car).

Some of the features of the new model are set to include a built-in computer with Internet access, a night vision camera with pedestrian detection, and button-operated doors.

Veno Automotive says the new car has a carbon fibre body work, and that the chassis is capable of handling more than 1000 horsepower, which is about 745kW.

The Polish car maker says it will build up to 50 units in total with about 10 cars per year.

All of them will be hand made, and the new vehicle is claimed to rival exotic machinery from companies such as Aston Martin, Ascari, and even Lamborghini. 

Power for the Polish supercar will come from Audi's well-regarded direct-injected petrol V8 engine.

It will be offered in three states of tune:

4.2-litre V8: 261kW (350hp)
4.2-litre V8: 335kW (450hp)
4.2-litre V8: 522kW (700hp)

It is unclear what the vehicle's transmission and drivetrain layout would end up as, but it is possible that it will use Audi's quattro AWD system.

Furthermore, Veno Automotive, which is owned by a private equity group in the United Kingdom, plans on using other engines in the future.

In 2009 the Polish car design group hopes to deliver a range of GM's Corvette V8 engines which are also used in Holden's Commodore range, into its angular super car. 

This would of course include the naturally aspirated and supercharged versions of the 6.2-litre V8: the LS3 and LS9.

Veno Automotive has also stated that it is researching an electric-powered version of it's super car. 

There has been conjecture as to whether or not this car will ever be built because, as has occurred with some Chinese automakers who have infringed copyrighted designs, court proceedings often eventuate.

And yes, it looks a lot like the Lamborghini Reventon. 

If Italian marque Lamborghini doesn't see a problem with the design, there's a chance this copy cat model could see the light of day.
