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.


  1. Seriously ??? People are actually buying these pieces of junk ? A Fool and His/Her Money are Soon Parted doesn’t even come close to describing the deluded 500 that have put their money down on this very bad joke of a pretentious exotic car .

    Oh well . The jokes on them . Leaves more of the good stuff for the rest of us

  2. @GuitarS…
    thats the second post i have read of yours (in all read 2 posts total), that you have disapproved of the car commented about.

    whats it with you with someone buying a higher powered car than the norm.

    are you some anti high Hp/Kw campaigner or something.
    (by no means do i class this as high Hp/Kw).

    there is an economy in people purchasing higher end market cars.

    i like it alot looks like how a real car should (racey), besides the power, but maybe hopefully one day they will increase the Hp/Kw.

    please take note i did see the 3.8 second to 100km/h figures.

    i’d love to see you on the road as all you would hear is external waste gates to atmosphere whilst at WOT :).

    so you can hear the beauty of high Hp/Kw’s.
