If you thought the Sabre LM was a bit mental, think again. The LM-R is its insane track focused alter ego, designed specifically to compete in Le Mans.
Behind the seats is the same 5.0L TT V12 engine found in the road car; only this version is capable of a monstrous 758 hp @ 6800 rpm and an even more ridiculous 760 lb-ft of torque @ 3900 rpm.
This immense power, combined with the mere 2375 lbs (1077 kg) that it has to push around, results in quite a performer. 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) takes just 2.9 seconds, the quarter mile marker arriving 7 seconds later. Additionally, it'll hit a top speed of around 205 mph, a respectable figure.
However, far removed from the world of electronic aids like traction control and ABS, it's a tricky machine to master. It does become quite stable once the immense down force kicks in, but beware of that tower of power at lower speeds.
I hope you enjoy it!
