The long-awaited Artega GT ultra-compact super-coupe will arrive to dealerships in the summer of 2008, German magazine Automobilwoche is reporting citing Artega’s spokesman Klaus Dieter Fers. So far, the car looks like a serious competitor for the legendary Porsche Cayman sports coupe.

Available next year at an approximate price of €75,000, the Artega GT will be manufactured in at least 500 copies and the production will hopefully be further extended if the car proves to be a commercial success.

The two-seater first unveiled at the last motor show in Geneva, will be less than 4 meters long, weigh about 1100 kg and will be powered by VW’s 3.6-liter FSI V6 engine, capable of producing up to 300 hp.

With all this power, the car will take less than 5 seconds to jump from zero to 60 mph and will have a top speed of 168 mph (270 km/h).
