An eagle-eyed car buff has managed to snap this exclusive image of the (until now) rumoured Stark Industries Super Car (SISC).
Just as interesting is the specifications list that Stark Industries had on display with the new supercar, still many months out from its official release.
With a massive development budget to claw back, this new information confirms that Stark Industries is planning to make their new SISC available to the public…at a price.
The MSRP of USD$9,198,000 will limit the pool of buyers to a handful of extremely wealthy car enthusiasts, and while you might be thinking that it is a little over-priced, the SISC is jam-packed with innovative technologies and returns astounding fuel efficiency figures.
In fact buyers who cover more than 100,000kms per year in their SISC will reclaim the purchase price in fuel savings (compared to a regular sedan) over a substantial amount of time.

Earlier today we spoke to Ms Pepper Potts, the CEO of Stark Industries, and while she admitted that an Australian launch was being planned, there were some hurdles - including emissions testing and local government concerns over the SISC’s radar-jamming capabilities.
“We’d like to get the SISC down to Australia. We already hold a number of expressions of interest from some prominent Australians," Ms Potts said.
"Unfortunately there are concerns over the SISC’s ability to jam speed detection devices, which we believe is considered tax avoidance in your country."
Ms Potts also confirmed that extensive background checking of purchasers will be undertaken to prevent wealthy criminals from buying a SISC and outrunning Ironman.
Now that the SISC is no longer a secret, an official debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March is scheduled, with 'regular' customers expected to take delivery in the fourth quarter of this year.
