For several years Moroccan coachbuilder Laraki has come to Geneva with a spectacular sports car. But we have not driven one yet, and the fear is that the company will not outgrow the prototype stage. This year Laraki is in Switzerland with the Borac.

It’s the second time a car with this name pops up, as the company also unveiled a Borac in 2003. Then it was equipped with a 5.5-liter Mercedes AMG V-8. Last year we saw the Fulgura with a 5.4-liter Mercedes V-8 with 570 hp or with a 6.2-liter V-12 with 660 hp. Now Laraki has equipped the Fulgura with a 6.0-liter Mercedes V-12 with 540 hp.

The car weighs 3306 lbs and sprints in 4.4 seconds from 0-60 mph and on to 192 mph. Of course, the rubber has to be fat and Laraki has put the Borac on 265/35 20-inch front tires and 290/35 20-inchers in the rear. The Moroccans hope to have the car ready to drive by mid-2006 and then to build it in a limited edition.
