Keating SKR Review

Keating Supercars is a car with no heritage, no history, no awareness and it is a from-scratch brand, but with high aspirations – to take on not just Lotus and Porsche, but Lamborghini, Ferrari and Aston Martin.
Keating claimed three essential developments aims during the car’s long eight-year gestation: the usual ones about balance and exclusivity, plus a new one: reliability. Long service intervals were mentioned more times than we could count, quality said to be an absolute imperative.
As you do power outputs, from the Corvette V8 engines. The standard 6.0-litre V8 is joined by a 505 bhp 7.0-liter, plus two supercharged units pushing power up to 656 bhp. A Porsche 5-speed trans axle channels the power rearwards, to heavily-worked 335-section tyres on surprisingly small 18-inch rims.
I think that this will be a real success!

The look is generic low-volume supercar. It could be a Saleen, or even something else. The front is a real success, the windscreen looking, as Keating admits, just like a McLaren F1. But it’s too heavy at the rear, lacks the delicacy of curve Porsche and Ferrari pay star names $ millions for.
