The world’s newest sports car has been launched by a niche British sports car company, Mulholland Automotive. The car is called the Legend 480 and it is a lightweight sportscar with a V8 in the front made by Formula One supplier Graham Mulholland.
According to Mulholland the recipe for a perfect British sportscar is this: engine in the front, rear wheel drive, manual gearbox, two seats, lightweight and a beautifully sculptured body. And that’s the recipe they’re following for the Legend 480.
The Legend 480 will be a 2 seater coupe, rear wheel drive and powered with a V8 engine going through a 6 speed gear box. Designed by former TVR design chief Damian McTagget, the Legend 480 is a modern day take on the TVR Tuscan. The car will also benefit from its parent company’s carbon fibre expertise, the chassis and body structure made from lightweight materials.
