Tushek Renovatio T500 2012

Slovenian luxury vehicle maker Tushek has confirmed plans to show off its Renovatio T500 supercar in the UK for the first time at the Salon Privé show next month.

Never before seen in the UK, the Renovatio T500 super sports car is a road- and track-ready design based around an Audi-sourced 4.2-litre 444bhp V8 engine and a hand-built body. The result, Tushek claims, is a vehicle capable of hitting 62mph from a standing start in just 3.7 seconds and with a top speed of an impressive 193mph.

The mid-engine design, built from claimed race-specification components, is the first vehicle to come out of the Slovenian company's factory, and represents the brainchild of company founder and racing driver Aljosa Tushek - a man who, it is claimed, founded the company on a philosophy of a desire for a pure and direct driving experience with user-friendly performance and handling.

"We are honoured to be chosen as the platform to launch the Renovatio T500 in the UK", claimed Salon Privé's David Bagley at the announcement. "Its groundbreaking aerodynamics, blistering performance to a near 200mph and back to zero again and race-specification materials construction is a sight to behold. This car has to be seen to be believed – and there’s only one place in the world to do that this summer: Salon Privé 2012."

Visitors to the show, which opens on the 5th of September with the Tour d’Elégance departing from the Royal Automobile Club at Woodcote Park, will be given the chance to see the vehicle - but only a select few will likely be able to consider placing a deposit: each Renovatio T500 is made to order at a cost of €300,000 (around £236,000).
