The Bolt is a prototype of a car that can drive at a breathtakingly exciting 340 mph. It features a 7.0-litre LS7 V8, which normally produces 505 horsepower but in this case is wired to put out 640 horsepower. There’s even a version that can reach 800. We’re talking 0 to 60 in 2 seconds flat. By using an awful lot of carbon and Kevlar in the car as well as a lightweight aluminum space frame, The Bolt claims to be light enough to for these speeds to be realistic. Cars like this are generally built from the ground up, depending on a customer’s specific needs. It appears the pricy version of The Bolt will run you about $1.2 million.
