The company plans to offer the supercar with two powertrains - a V8 or as an EV
Keating Supercars doesn’t have much name recognition, but the firm is celebrating 10 years of building performance vehicles. The company has a new model on the way next year called the Berus, and the coupe is allegedly capable of reaching over 230 miles per hour (370 kilometres per hour).
Keating plans to offer the Berus in two forms. Traditional supercar buyers can get it with a V8 that can allegedly rocket the supercar to 60 miles per hour (96 km/h) from a standstill in 2.4 seconds, and to that huge top speed. Customers with greener preferences can order electric propulsion with between 201 and 402 horsepower and a gargantuan 1,054 pound-feet of torque.
The production Berus arrives at next April’s Monaco Top Marques show. Keating already has renderings of a half-scale model of the design. The low-slung shape doesn’t break any new ground in the supercar segment, though. The vehicle’s moniker derives from vipera berus – the scientific name for the common European viper.
Keating Supercars arrived on the scene with the track-only TKR. It used a biturbo LS7 V8 with a claimed 1,800 hp. In 2009, the vehicle managed 260.1 mph (419 km/h) at Salt Lake Flats in California. A road-legal version called the SKR was also available with a 656-hp supercharged LS7.
