Etox ZaferIt is sometimes said that those who try their hardest to succeed, will. This statement is true for a Turkish businessman who had a passion for sportscars and made it big by creating one of his own.

Turkey now has a new automobile manufacturer, and Etox(established in 2006)has produced a prototype worth drooling over. The Zafer [Victory], a punchy two-seater which packs 272bhp with a top-of-the-range 3-liter V6 engine, was unveiled on 30th August, Victory Day in Turkey.

Etox is the first Turkish automobile manufacturer dedicated exclusively to building sports cars. Its first model, the Etox Zafer, will become the first ever Turkish sports car. Designing the Zafer took 6 months after testing and surveying among hundreds of other prototypes. The latest prototype was created by 46 Turkish engineers in 2 years. The 100,000 kilometer quality tests of the Etox Zafer are currently under way.

The license for mass production of the Etox Zafer has been granted by the Turkish Government and the company aims to produce 20 cars per annum in its first year of production. Etox is envisioning to produce up to 500 cars per annum in the coming years.

We say way to go to Turkey for making it into the world of Supercars. Someday we may see their cars over here in the U.S. For now we say good luck to them and anyone who purchases one. You’ll need a good $56,900 to buy one.
