Thailand’s 999Motorsports Unveils Track-Day 300HP Lightweight Sportscar

The dark grey vehicle you see in these pictures is the Supersport, a track-day special manufactured by Thailand’s 999Motorsports. It features a steel tubular chassis and a carbon fiber and fiberglass body, and as a result, weight has been kept at low 950 kilos or 2,094 lbs.

The Supersport, which is 999’s second model after the Hacker, is motivated by a mid-mounted 2.0-liter turbocharged Ecotec 4-cylinder engine. Maximum power is 300HP and torque reaches 350 Nm (258 lb/ft), transferred to the rear wheels via a five-speed sequential gearbox and a limited-slip differential.

Its suspension features double wishbones with adjustable shock absorbers and roll bars all around. The Supersport also has 18-inch alloy monobloc wheels and 320 mm front and 285 mm rear discs with six- and four-piston calipers respectively.

The interior is, as befitting a track-day special, short of amenities though it features racing seats, six-point seatbelts, a carbon fiber dashboard, a fire extinguisher and a programmable LCD instrument panel.

The company hasn’t announced performance numbers, but with 300HP and just 950 kg performance shouldn’t be an issue.
