The flat land of Holland is already home to one super car maker, Spyker - the new Vencer Sarthe means the Dutch sports car market is about to get a little more crowded.
The new company was established in 2010 by real estate and drainage entrepreneur Robert Cobben.
Named after the famed French race track that is home to the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the Sarthe is composed of a steel space frame and a honeycomb floor, with a big V8 bolted amidships. The chassis is wrapped in carbon-fibre panels.
The V8 is said to produce 375kW and 480Nm of torque, using a 6-speed manual transmission to get the power to the rear wheels.
The styling is rather familiar - clear echoes of McLaren F1 and MP4-12C up front and some Jaguar XJ220 and Honda NSX at the rear. It is certainly a car designed in the wind-tunnel - or at least in a simulated one.
The Vencer website says the Sarthe will weigh 1390kg and scorch from 0-100km/h in 3.5 seconds, before heading on to almost 330km/h.
The website offers no pricing or release information, but it does have a lot of high-resolution renders and videos of what looks like a naked chassis and clay styling buck.
You could have a hand in its second car, as the website is running a competition for the design of Vencer's second car.
We'll keep an eye on the Sarthe and let you know when they build one.
