At this 2010 Detroit Auto Show, Revenge Designs has unveiled its brand new supercar called the Verde, which the company claims will be on sale later this year and priced at $190,000.

The not-to-be-ignored new supercar will feature two powertrains: a gas version, which will include either a 605hp Roush-sourced Ford V8 or a supercharged Corvette ZR1 LS9, and a hybrid V8 called the HP2ge. The hybrid version reportedly delivers 110 mpg while still putting out 400 horses and 500 lb-ft of torque.

Comparing the car to the Lamborghini Gallardo, which costs upwards of $250,000, Revenge Designs CEO Peter Collorafi said: “That Gallardo’s clutch will run $16,800 to repair. Ours will be done with domestic vendors and labor and run $3,200. That’s a niche we want to fill.”

Acceleration times are estimated at below five seconds for the 0-60 mph run and top speed should come in at 200 mph, although there will reportedly be a model capable of reaching speeds of up to 240 mph

Revenge Designs will offer the car for $190,000 and eventually hopes to export it to other markets. [via MotorAuthority]
