The Inferno Automobili Inferno is the first hypercar built in Mexico.

It’s all kicking off in Mexico’s fast car industry.
Not so long ago, the country boasted only one sports car of any international recognition: the Mastretta MXT. But a couple of years ago, Mexico’s fast car population doubled in the shape of the Vuhl 05. And now, excitingly, there’s a third Mexican sports car manufacturer entering the ring: Inferno.
At the recent Expo Bancomer technology event, Inferno announced its first model, the creatively named ‘Exotic Car’. It’s a 245 mph supercar with lots of big numbers and styling straight outta Hot Wheels.
Want some facts? No problem. Grab your nearest salt shaker and we’ll begin.
First up, power. That comes in at a nice round 1,400bhp thanks to a twin-turbo V8. Inferno also attests the Exotic Car produces 670 torques, but doesn’t specify an actual unit. Clearly Top Gear would never be so lax with its measurement of twist.
Those 670 torques and 1400bhp horsepower will, Inferno reckons, get the car from a standstill to 62mph in under three seconds, and on to a top speed of 245mph.
The car is the creation of Antonio Ferrarioli, a man who has designed components for Lamborghini. It remains unspecified which components.
The Inferno Automobili Inferno was added in the Fire and Lightning Update as a high-end Class S car with the following rank statistics:
- Stock rank: 3,549 ( 85)
- rank: 3,703
- rank: 3,882 ( 25)
- rank: 4,073 ( 29)
- rank: 4,272 ( 38)
- rank: 4,504 ( 54)
- rank: 4,722 ( 69)
The Inferno has above-average acceleration, decent top speed and one of the best nitro efficiencies in its class. Its drifiting capabilites are also decent but can become wide under certain circumstances.
The Inferno was available from its Special Event between February 12 - March 12, 2021.
The Inferno can be considered to be an upgrade of Icona Vulcano Titanium as it has a high top speed, good acceleration and nitro duration but weak in handling. While by no means a class king, it is still a competive option for its tier and placement.
