Russia’s Marussia Launches B1 and B2 sports cars

Russia’s Marussia b1-b2

Russian sports car manufacturer has put the B1 and B2 cars into production and also opened the company first showroom in Moscow.

First unveiled more than a year ago, the Marussia B1 and B2 are Russian designed and engineered sports cars which feature a mid-mounted 3.5-litre Cosworth engine.

The engine is available in three states of tune; producing 300bhp, 360bhp and 420bhp respectively. The B2 weighs just 1,100 kg and with 420bhp can sprint from 0-100kph in a claimed 3.2 seconds.

The Russian sports cars are also relatively affordable, priced from only 479,192AED. As a result the company claims to have already built a healthy order book and is planning to make up to 10,000 cars a year by 2014 which will also include a new SUV named F2.
