This never-before-seen supercar is leaving people confused

This one-of-a-kind supercar was spotted in South Korea and it’s drawing a lot of questions.

Mostly because no one has any idea what this is.

Filmed by photographer Gold Jongsun, this rare unicorn is called the Epique GT1 and it’s made in South Korea by an obscure car brand known as De Macross.

The supercar was first announced 13 years ago and most people assumed it was just vaporware, but it wasn’t.

It resurfaced a few years later when Jay Leno drove it for an episode of Jay Leno’s garage, and now we finally get to see one ‘in the wild’.

It looks good, too.

At the back, you’ve got a prominent rear wing decorated with the name of the car, and six square taillights, two of which smoothly taper around the wheel arch.

The see-through engine cover and four-tip exhaust system complete the look.

The side profile reveals dish wheels that give off 70s vibes and of coursegull wing doors.

And there’s no scenario in which gull wings doors feel out of the place.

The front is a bit Noble-esque, in that it vaguely resembles the Noble M600 supercar, with two massive air scoops on the hood.

As for the interior, it is relatively minimalistic and it definitely feels analog.

You’ve got dials, a lot of gauges but there’s no screen in sight.

Engine-wise, the De Macross uses a 5.4-liter supercharged V8, sending 845 horsepower to the rear wheels via a six-speed manual.

The power-to-weight ratio is impressive, considering the car only weighs 1,450 kg.

Unfortunately the De Macross is everything but cheap, with a price tag of $1.5 million.
