Owning a supercar says a lot about a person. Terms like money, power, and influence quickly come to mind, but the folks at Ronn Motor Company are looking to add a few new descriptors to the exclusive supercar lifestyle with the Ronn Scorpion. And thanks to them, one new super adjective is fuel-efficient.
Ronn Motor Company (based in Austin, TX) utilizes a hydrogen generator to create hydrogen on demand, which improves gas mileage and reduces emissions in its Scorpion models. All of this fuel conservation is pivotal when you’re powering a 3.5-liter twin turbo V-6 engine with 450 horsepower and 302 lb*ft of raw torque. We’re still wondering when Bentley and Maybach are going to create this kind of fuel efficiency.
So exactly what kind of mileage are we talking about here? How about 40 miles per gallon. That’s right, the Ronn Scorpion allows you to travel in excess of 200 miles per hour, with a 0 to 60 time of 3.5 seconds, more efficiently than your Greenpeace neighbor and his Toyota Prius.
But these exclusive technological marvels under the hood are only one side of this very alluring luxury supercar coin. Without question, there’s just no denying the sheer eye candy factor of the Scorpion. The attention to detail that exists in every contour of its carbon fiber body, two-piece forged Modena wheels, and key neon lighting (found in the interior and engine bay) scream top of the line, making this one of the newest dream cars on the market.
And with so many high-end features, you can expect a high-end price tag, but still won’t be one of the most expensive cars to buy. The Scorpion and the limited edition Scorpion HX are available for $175,000 and $250,000 respectively. Since the cars are virtually built per order with an extensive waiting list, you’ll also have to pay a $5,000 production reservation.
Doing so many things right from both a supercar enthusiast and eco-friendly perspective, has turned a lot of heads. With coverage from the likes of Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) and MSN, as well as tours from Vegas to Monte Carlo, the Exclusive Luxury Scorpion is getting all of the attention it deserves, and should be seen in every luxury magazine around the world.
Every facet of the Scorpions allure stems directly from Ronn Motor Company’s mission statement, which includes a promise to focus their efforts on “leading edge design, environmentally friendly, finely built premium automobiles, balancing stunning looks and performance with eco-responsible power systems.” And it’s safe to say that the Ronn Scorpion has hit this very lofty nail, right on the head.
