Meet the Bermat GT Pista: an ultralight 400-HP track-only supercar
It's so light that it weighs as much as a Mazda Miata!
Since their launch in 2015, supercar manufacturer Bermat has spent years of developing their first production models. And now they are here. This week, Bermat unveiled their new flagship supercar: the GT-Pista.
The northern-Italy based marque made the GT Pista in part with Italian motorsport and engineering company JAS Motorsport, calling for state of the art technology such as full carbon fiber bodywork to keep weight down to a minimum. On the topic of weight, the GT Pista comes in at 2,425 pounds, or 10 pounds more than a new Miata. The GT Pista is powered a 2.0L four cylinder engine mated to a six speed sequential gearbox which sends all that power to the real wheels. It's not hard to conclude that this thing is the perfect track car. With all that power, the GT Pista is good for a 4.0 second 0-60, a low number, but nothing that can match that of a Porsche 911.
Inside the GT Pista is where you'll find a 12-inch digital gauge cluster covered in carbon fiber, as well as carbon fiber seats and a four point harness. The Formula 1-inspired steering wheel, also made from carbon fiber, even has color-coded buttons responsible for racing controls.
Pricing hasn't been revealed yet, nor have production numbers. Bermat says that the track-only GT Pista and road-going GT are scheduled to be released before mid 2022.
