About two months ago we announced that the Marussia B2, a Russian designed sportscar, would be manufactured by Finnish car builder Valmet Automotive. Now we have to tell you that the limited, 500 car run has already sold out.
Valmet Automotive engineers, develop and assemble cars for various other companies on a contractual basis. The Finnish company previously assembled the Porsche Boxster and Cayman, and now currently builds the Fisker Karma.
To refresh your mind we can tell you that Marussia’s second model, the B2, has a 2.8 liter turbocharged V6 engine that creates 420hp together with 600Nm of torque. That power in combination with a total weight of only 1,100kg makes a sprint from standstill to 100km/h possible in just 3.8 seconds.
We hope to see the first Marussia’s on the road by the end of the year.
