The Marussia B-Series is a series of sports coupes built by Russian automaker Marussia Motors.The series consists of the B1 and the B2; the cars are very similar technically, but are very different in design. The two vehicles have the same engines, layout, features, suspension and brakes. They are also the first Russian sports cars ever built.
The differences between the B1 and the B2 are only cosmetic; the B2 offers a new, edgier design and a new, almost space-age interior. The design was meant to give the car a more aggressive look. Some design features include highlighting the grille and intakes in black to contrast them to the car’s body colour and emphasize some of the car’s geometric elements, as well as styling the car’s face to the shape of the “M” in the Marussia Motors logo.
The Marussia B2 will be offered with a 3.5 liter normally aspirated Cosworth V6 engine developing 300 horsepower and 410Nm of torque, or a turbocharged 2.8 liter V6 with either 360hp and 520Nm or 420hp and 600Nm depending on the state of tune.Power is transferred to the rear wheels via a 6-speed automatic transmission.It’s top speed is limited to 250km/h.
