This Mexican Megacar’s Specs Are Insane, But The Exterior Is Where Its Innovation Shines

Videos of Mexico’s fabled “Inferno” megacar have been posted online for more than a year now, usually accompanied by face-melting guitar riffs and sounds of pedal-to-the-metal engine-revving. However, one question that has eluded gear-heads to this point is this: “When will it be available?”

Well, the wait is nearly over. Mexico’s “Inferno Exotic Car,” Maxim reports, will go into production later this year.

According to the company’s website, the Inferno was designed with help from Antonio Ferraioli, who was one of the creative minds behind cars like the Lamborghini Veneno Roadster and the rare Gallardo Super Trofeo.

The Inferno’s impressive specs puts it into the realm of the megacars.

The first megacar to appear on the block was the Koenigsegg One: 1 in 2014. It received that distinction for it’s impressive 1,341 horsepower — or one megawatt of power. The Inferno, which tops out at 245 miles per hour, boasts an even more impressive 1,400 HP and a V8 with 670 lb-ft of torque.

With a press of the pedal, the Inferno Exotic Car can achieve 0 to 62 mph in under 3 seconds.

For a real world comparison, the iconic Lamborghini Countach could achieve 0 to 60 in 4.7 seconds.

The Countach, which began its run in 1974, lugged around an even larger V12 and could hit a top speed of 183 mph and had a meager 455 hp.

And for a more modern comparison, the Nissan Leaf boasts a mind-blowing acceleration, going from 0 to 60 in 9.9 seconds.

Careful! This one’s barely street legal.

The Inferno also sports a unique exterior that improves performance and security.

The “exclusive” metal foam is more than just a gimmick to sell cars. As Maxim reports, the Inferno checks in at a relatively light 2,646 pounds thanks in part to its metal foam body. For comparison, a Toyota Corolla can weigh around 2,840 pounds. The company’s website writes that the metal foam is “an exclusive material that improves security, since it can decrease and absorb the impact in a car crash. This material’s strength is compared to that of a commercial armored vehicle.”

Adding to the benefits, the company reports, the metal foam “is the perfect material for an exclusive hyper car, since it reduces weight it helps the car to increase its HP and reduce gas consumption.”

These factors make the car more responsive and improves the security of the driver, the company claims.

You Kinda Can’t Tell If Christian Bale Is Joking Or Not When He Calls Oscar Isaac A D— In This Podcast

Guatemalan-American actor Oscar Isaac and British actor Christian Bale are the stars of “The Promise” a film that chronicles the Armenian Genocide that took place at the turn of the century at the hands of the Ottoman Empire. If you were paying attention in world history class, the Ottoman Empire is the predecessor to modern day Turkey and the genocide that took place there is still denied by the government even now. Approximately 1.5 million Armenian’s lost their lives and were killed by the government at that time.

Oscaar Isaac stars as one of the leads of “The Promise” a period piece about the Armenian genocide.

A post shared by The Promise (@thepromisefilm) on

Isaac and Bale, along with Charlotte Le Bon, play characters that form a love triangle at the center of it all.


Recently Isaac and Bale were interviewed for “Little Gold Men” a podcast by Vanity Fair, which gets the inside scoop on films that have Oscar buzz (wouldn’t that be great? For Oscar to get his own Oscar?). The men were interviewed for the podcast recently and have a hilarious bromance. At one point Bale flat out says that Isaac isn’t his friend and calls him a “dick.” There’s a moment of silence, right before everyone in the room bursts out laughing. Total bro-ment (get it? bro moment? no? ok.).

Tune in at the 6:40 mark for their interview, it’s informative and funny.

Bale almost sounds like he actually hates Isaac, but it’s all fun. Toward the end of their interview, Bale says Isaac is one of the “finest actors of our generation.” Big compliment coming from the Bale, who has won an Oscar himself and played the coolest Batman of all time.
