Artega GT Slated for Frankfurt Motor Show
The illustrious Henrik Fisker, former Aston Martin designer and creator of the Fisker line of reskinned, coachbuilt sports cars, has done it again, this time in the form of the $100,000+ Argeta GT. The Artega brand name is a spin-off from German auto supplier Paragon, who will showcase this little number in production form at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
The car's meat comes from Volkswagen, where Paragon sourced the Artega GT's 295-horsepower, 3.6-liter FSI V-6 and DSG dual clutch gearbox. VW's deceptively powerful engine pulls the car's mere 2,425 pounds with its 258 pound-feet of torque, which evidently gave Paragon the idea that the car approaches Porsche 911 territory.
The Artega GT will initially be sold in Germany and the rest of Europe, and then in North America, Asia, and the Middle East.
