It has taken the company from Spain five long years to produce another supercar in the form of the Y2. The latest in Identity’s line up draws inspiration from one of the most feared and ferocious predators known to man, the great white shark. Will the Y2 live up to the image of the streamlined and powerful ocean monster it was designed after?
In paper, the Identity Y2 is a sports coupe equipped with a V12 engine capable of 520 horsepower that produces 700Nm of torque (369 lb/ft). All that power under the hood translates to an impressive 0-100km/h (0-60mph) acceleration of less than 5 seconds and a none-too shabby top speed of 300km/h (187mph).
Identity has already won hearts of million car aficionados by releasing colorful and attractive vehicles which are less expensive and up to the mark. 2011 Identity Y2 variant is one of the sophisticated concept vehicles which will be found in the international market.
The most prominent feature of the 2011 Identity is its a pair of bi-xenon headlights that mimic the great white shark’s own menacing and piercing eyes. Still using the great white predator as design inspiration, the Y2 is fitted with an imposing front grille and side air intakes.
The Y2 is 4.9 meters long, 1.3 meters high, 1.95 meters wide and with a 2.96-meter wheelbase.All these elements add up to a sleek and roomy yet aggressive and powerful stance- just like the great white shark.
