Cuba is about to introduce its first super car, nine years after Fidel Castro promised changes to improve the Cuban economy. The "Fast Granma" prototype was first revealed to the press.
The Cubans plan on first introducing the vehicle to Brazilian consumers who are more willing to purchase the oversize family car. One Brazilian consumer said the car is better looking than what is typically found in the Brazilian countryside.
After navigating through tons of red tape, the idea of the Cuban super car was put into action by the communist oligarchy. The Cubans are confident in the 2014 winter market introduction.
Maximum power will come from a 2.9 liter V6 motor with four different outputs. The "Fast Granma" will also be distributed in Cuba to desperate consumers. It will have to be cranked by hand because the Cubans can't afford to install car batteries.
The body is made from plywood held together by gelatin glue which is considered a strong glue. It is all heavyweight and very stiff at the same time. The Cuban auto industry does not yet have a well-developed super car heritage and as such, these manufacturing technologies are not common for the general market.
