2003 Orca Engineering C 113 news, pictures, specifications, and information
After fifteen years of design and development, Rene Beck and his father introduced the Orca C113, a name inspired by the killer what, at the 2002 Geneva Motorshow. The Orca Engineering Ltd. Company is based in Switzerland and has begun the journey that many automobile enthusiasts have dreamed about, few have attempted, and even fewer have succeeded. A concept has been created and less than a hundred are expected to be produced per year. Becoming a low-production and exclusive automobile builder is very difficult and expensive.

To keep weight to a minimum, the vehicle is adorned with exotic, light-weight and rugged material such as carbon fiber and an aluminum chassis. A turbocharged Volvo five-cylinder engine was placed behind the driver and powered the rear wheels. The exterior design is very angular and achieved a low level of drag.

In 2005, the production version of the C113 revisited Geneva. Much had changed; an Audi twin-turbocharged eight cylinder engine had replaced the Volvo five-cylinder unit. Zero-to-sixty is said to take around three seconds and top speed being achieved at over 220 mph.

Two other models, the R113 and SC7, are also being offered. The R113 comes with a convertible top while the SC7 comes with extra muscle - around 850 horsepower.

Only time will tell if this Swiss manufacturer will be successful in this competitive market with strict safety and government regulations.
