Okay, so an F1 car and an F-22 Raptor fighter jet have a boozy night out and things get a little steamy... It?s conceivable that sometime later (we aren?t sure what a Raptor?s gestation period is), the car you see here could be the bastard love child?

Loaded to the gunwales with 537kW (720hp) and 1100Nm of twin-turbocharged Mercedes-Benz sourced 5.5-litre V12, this my friends is the Tramontana R. For those with weaker wallets, or stomachs, a less powerful, 410Kw (550hp) naturally aspirated version is also available.

Made in Spain by the Tramontana Group, the ?R? in turbo-charged form will scorch from 0 - 100km/h in 3.6 seconds (don't line up against a GT-R) and peak somewhere near 325km/h. All up it weighs in at 1260kgs, which seems like a lot given its use of exotic materials.

Wheels are magnesium/carbon fibre 20-inch affairs and there is carbon fibre everywhere in the construction of the body.

Brakes are six piston Brembos with 380mm discs, while a custom Ohlins suspension system irons out the bumps.

Inside the cockpit (?), there are lashings of exposed carbon fibre, an LCD instrument panel and the controls for the six-speed sequential gearbox.

The price of all this madness?

You?ll be needing a spare ?385,000 ,$US495,000 or $AU757,574 to park the Tramontana R in your driveway. The good news is that it will be rare, as production is limited to just 12 units per year.

Overpriced, ugly and a bit slow...?

The Tramontana R is due to make its public debut at the Top Marques Monaco Show at the end of March.
