The use of lightweight materials is the main attraction of Vorax. With a chassis made of aluminum and carbon fiber body, incarnates Vorax manjadi sports car with a very light weight.
Just imagine, Vorax chassis that support the body to be produced in Blumenau weighs only 220 kg only. "If made of steel, its weight would be three times heavier," said Production Manager Reginaldo Otsu Vorax quoted as saying by local newspaper A Tribuna, Monday (10/25/2010).
Aluminum components alone mastering Vorax body and reach the percentage to 60 percent of the 5,000 components in the body Vorax. For 20 inch wheel rim that supports Vorax example.

Meanwhile, those who want to feel the power that is more vicious, Rossin-Bertin also provides a machine that is equipped with two supercharger until the machine is also capable of spewing out power to 750 hp.
In virtual testing, Vorax accelerates from rest to 100 km per hour in just 3.8 seconds and has a topspeed up to 330 km per hour. While at variance with the supercharger would have a higher speed version of the 'ordinary' earlier.
For acceleration, it is powered car capable of driving 750 hp in 3.6 seconds to reach speeds of 100 km per
hour with top speeds reaching 372 km per hour.
