The supercar appeared in 2007, produced by K-1 Engineering, based in Slovakia.
The K-1s were kit-cars – “car builders”, or “cars out of the box” – that is, they were sold as a kit of parts from which the customer assembled the car themselves. The customer could buy a basic kit, or build a car of his own choice, installing the engine and other parts from any car.
Most of the cars were delivered to the US market. They were later modified, and in 2008 K-1 signed a contract with Audi AG, after which the car was fitted with a 4.2-litre V8 FSI engine like the Audi RS4. This enabled the car to accelerate to 100 km/h in less than 4 seconds, with its top speed rising to 270 km/h.
In 2011, despite the profits made from selling the kite cars, the owner sold the licence for the car along with the equipment to a Slovenian racing driver, Aljosa Tušek. There are now no more than 100 cars in the world with different engines, 80% of which, according to the internet, are concentrated in the USA.
