Spies Hecker coats Brutal S1

Independent Slovakian car maker Brutal has just launched the S1 super sports car with the support of Color Centrum Vráble sro, Spies Hecker’s Slovak distributor.

Marian Lušpai, the founder of Slovakian car manufacturer Brutal, was inspired by the Ariel Atom to create the S1. Lušpai, a trained engineer, has taken almost 10 years to develop the S1 which is a light, two-seater with a fibreglass, carbon and Airex special foam body over a tubular frame. It is powered by a 300hp two-litre turbocharged Subaru engine that is positioned behind the driver. The car weighs less than 900kg and can reach 100km/h in less than four seconds.

For the design, Lušpai relied on the Academy of Art and Design in Bratislava, Slovakia.

Lušpai had been in touch with Spies Hecker distributor Color Centrum Vráble sro in Michal nad Žitavou in the south west of Slovakia in the development stage, so when he was ready, he entrusted the professional refinishers with painting the car.

Marián Pecho, sales and technical manager at Color Centrum Vráble sro, said, ‘we were captivated by Lušpai’s vision right from the start and were happy to support him.’

Pecho and his team developed a tailor-made solution for this special project using Spies Hecker’s Permasolid HS Vario Primer Surfacer 5340, Permahyd Hi-TEC Base Coat 480 and Permasolid HS Optimum Plus Clear Coat 8650.
