Marussia B1 a Russian supercar 3.5 litre V6 Engine.
The Marussia B1 is a Russian made supercar developed entirely by a team of Russian designers and engineers.The B1's aerodynamic bodywork was developed courtesy of a competition which invited young Russian designers to submit their concepts to the company. The winning design would then be used to help shape the final product.The defining characteristics of the Marussia B1's exterior design are the aggressive, sharp lines and the two-tone paintwork. And despite the B1 being Marussia's first attempt at a sports car the end result is appealing from a styling point of view.

Unfortunately despite the supercar looks the Marussia B1's drive train is not up to supercar levels. Or even premium sports car numbers. Located in a mid-mounted position is a 3.5 litre V6 which produces 245 horsepower and 330 Nm of torque @ 3,600 rpm. Marussia claim this is good for a 5 second 0-60 time, and a 155 mph top speed. Thankfully however the company is working on developing different drivetrain options which should help the performance match the appearance. Marussia B1 Russian supercar

The interior of the Marussia B1, which was developed through a collaboration between Italian and Russian designers, features a pair of reclining deeply-bo
lstered sports seats and a squared off three-spoke sports steering wheel. The dash of the Marussia B1 features three separate LCD displays which provide information for both driving functions and the entertainment systems. The displays are touch screen, but the functions can also be controlled with the help of a joystick mounted on the centre console.The whole interior can be upholstered in a variety of different colors and finishes to suit the owners tastes.
