2009 Jetstream SC250 - video


New British sportscar manufacturer Jetstream breaks into the lightweight sportscar market with their SC250 model that couples a totally unique and striking look in terms of styling with substantial performance credentials. The mid-engined, rear wheel drive road-legal two seater SC250 is now in production after completing an extensive testing programme, following the unveiling of the prototype at the Autosport International Show at Birmingham's NEC back in January.

Lurking under the engine cover of the SC250 is the same 2.0 litre Ecotec Turbo Twin-Cam 16-valve powerplant and smooth six-speed transmission that appears in the Vauxhall Astra VXR, producing 250bhp as standard. The engine can be run on either unleaded or bio-ethanol – the latter fuel increasing performance by around 10%. With the SC250 weighing in at a mere 700kg (1,550lb), an astonishing power-to-weight ratio of 357bhp-per-tonne (2.8kg/bhp) is achieved, propelling the car from 0-60mph (0-96km/h) in under 4 seconds and to a maximum speed of 165mph (265km/h). A quarter of a mile run from a standing start takes just 11.8 seconds. The car's torque is also impressive, with 236lb/ft (320Nm) generated @ 2,400rpm. For a car of this performance, a combined unleaded fuel economy of 38mpg (13.4kpl) ensures running costs are not excessive.

The performance figures aren't the only impressive features that make the SC250 a real driver's car - the whole package has been designed and engineered to deliver the optimum high performance experience behind the wheel, whether on the road or driving to the limit on a track.

Price is Ј29,495 OTR and includes a full 12 month parts and labour warranty subject to conditions, excluding any optional extras, which include a „Gull Wing" style door hard top.
