EVER heard of a Tushek? 

It’s a car maker based in Slovenia, who suddenly appeared on the scene back in 2012 with its 335kW sports coupe — called the Renovatio T500. 

Seven years on, and Tushek is back with a product more than twice as powerful: the TS 900 H Apex. 

It’s making its debut at the Salon Prive in the UK next month.

The TS 900 pumps out more than 700kW and 1400Nm via its 4.2-litre rear-mounted V8 and dual electric motors.

 And thanks to a chrome-moly spaceframe chassis and carbon fibre body, it has a mass of only 1400kg.

It takes just 2.5 seconds to rocket to 100km/h and is good for 375km/h at the top end, which puts it in Bugatti territory.

To cope with all that speed and power, the Slovenian Supercar uses Pirelli Trofeo Series R tyres and massive Brembo brakes. 

It also has a removable hardtop and scissor doors.

“The Tushek team is delighted to be back at Salon Privé,” company founder and Slovenian race car driver, Aljosa Tushek, said. 

“Over the past years, we have intensively developed and constructed advanced technological solutions for our new model, the TS 900 H APEX, in particular in the area of electric drive train. 

“Those developments are now incorporated in our latest model and have been successfully tested in race-track conditions over the past months. 

“Our team is looking forward to presenting our supercar to Salon Prive’s elite clientele.”

The Salon Prive Concours opens its doors on September 7. 

How much do you have to pay for one?

Mr Tushek hasn’t yet revealed that little factor.

Athough motoring has always been in his DNA, he was also night crime reporter, foreign page editor and later chief reporter of the famed Rand Daily Mail. He’s twice been shot at, attacked by a rhinoceros and had several chilling experiences in aircraft. His experience includes stints in traffic law enforcement, motor racing and rallying and writing for a variety of local and international publications. He has covered countless events, ranging from world motor shows and Formula 1 Grands Prix to Targa tarmac and round-the-houses meetings. A motoring tragic, he has owned more than 90 cars. Somewhat of a nostalgic, he has a special interest in classic cars. He is the father of Targa star Robert Buys, who often adds his expertise to Bill’s reviews.
