The 12.4km track in Nardo, Italy has become legendary thanks to the speed records that have been set there. Now, for the third time, a Lorinser Limited Series, based on the Mercedes Benz SL, will be named after this Southern Italian circuit.

Independently measured speeds of up to 202mph catapult the Winnenden car maker into the regions that are usually reserved for pure supercars.

An impressive 660hp was required to help the two ton Nardo 3 climb to this top speeds. The maximum torque of 747 lb-ft is similar to that produced by a medium-sized truck. While these figures may sound exorbitantly high, they are necessary to overcome the physical problem of air resistance increasing exponentially rather than linearly, which makes it necessary to utilize as much power as possible to increase speed. The Swabian technicians, therefore, optimized the electronics and fuel injection of the engine, which is based on the 612hp SL65 AMG Biturbo. The vehicle's exterior has all the characteristics of a racecar - aggressive front and rear bumpers, widened fenders, and gigantic air intakes.

A car that most drivers are likely to see only from behind does, of course, also need a corresponding exhaust system that is both visually and acoustically impressive, so Lorinser integrated double exhaust pipes into the rear bumper.

The vehicle's interior, on the other hand, provides the driver with all the creature comforts including seats that are both comfortable and provide sufficient support. The interior ensures the Nardo3 can be used for daily driving and offers an enjoyable ride even on long-distance trips. In an effort to underline the exclusiveness of its vehicles, the company will produce no more than 50 vehicles in its Winnenden facilities.
