Numbers of fortunes were shelled out for enormous torque this weekend at Pebble Beach, including the offer of a $27.5-million Ferrari NART Spyder. Of all the brilliantly shaded things to go on showcase, however, one emerged above and beyond the rest: the concept of Laraki Epitome. Before proceeding, you must know a little about this company.


Laraki is a Moroccan situated company founded in Casablanca. The company was established back in 1999 with the purpose to develop and sell deluxe high performance sports cars. The owner of the company is Abseslam Laraki. This man is designer by profession who started his career by creating high-end yachts. The King of Bahrain is one of his main customers. He has also worked for Franco Sbarro. Well, there are two other models produced by Laraki:

  • First Laraki Sports car was launched in 2002 named Fulgura
  • The second Laraki model was Borac launched in 2005

The Laraki Fulgura is the Company’s first endeavor at a sports car. Initially revealed as an idea at the 2002 Geneva Motor Show, a planned production rendition appeared after one year at the same show. A marginally upgraded version of the bodywork was uncovered in 2005.


In light of the structure and mechanics of a Lamborghini Diablo, it is equipped with a quad-turbo Mercedes-Benz 6.0l V12, at first proposed to deliver 920 HP (686 kw), coupled with a 6-speed manual transmission. Another is its aerodynamically optimized carbon fiber body included as add-on. This brings this sports car to an expected cost of $555,750. Fulgura is expected to reach top speeds of 398 km/h (247 mph) and accelerating from 0 – 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.3 seconds. In 2006, these figures were altered and the 6.0l V12 was proposed to deliver 730 HP (544 kw), and mated to a 7-pace gearbox with top speed of 350 km/h (217 mph) and reaching 0–100 km/h in 3.4 seconds.

The second model was Laraki Borac which appeared as an idea at the Geneva Motor Show in 2005. The second model was initially designed for display by 2011; however the final design was never worked on beyond that point. The configuration of the Borac is that of a Fantastic Tourer, with a front motor format and even the likelihood of two little back seats. The Borac is entirely different from the design of the Fulgura. A Mercedes-Benz 6.0l V12 powers the Borac, despite the fact that it fails to offer the turbocharging of the Fulgura. This results in a proposed yield of 540 HP (400 kw), creates a speed of 310 km/h (193 mph) and can reach from 0 – 60 mph in 4.5 seconds.

The Laraki Epitome is the most recent brainchild of yacht developer Abdesslam Laraki. This is the third sports car launched by the company that is also used in the latest franchise of Fast and Furious 7. Based upon the C6 Corvette, the Laraki Epitome offers a full carbon fiber body, which cuts the control weight down to approximately 2,800 pounds.


Under that lightweight skin is a 7.0-liter Corvette V8. Anyhow, this one has had twin turbochargers fitted to it. Presently it creates 1,200 pull on premium 91 octane fuel. Astutely, Laraki Epitome has an optional gas tank which works on a mixture of 91 Octane and 110 Octane from the helper tank. Alongside a speedy flip over with an optional ECU programming creates 1,750 pull. Evaluated at $2 million, the Laraki Epitome is an absolute whip at Pebble Beach. Laraki just plans a nine-unit run of the Epitome, however, it could possibly have different items in the pipeline. Particular Epitome specs such as, top velocity and 0-60 mph have not been revealed. No doubt, Laraki Epitome is the splendid blend of advanced and classy design. Last but not the least, Epitome is one of the wildest and outstanding racing cars produced by the Laraki.
