The Montecarlo Automobile Rascasse is not exactly a one-of-a-kind supercar, but it’s pretty close. The car is being released to celebrate the 30th birthday of Moncao-based Montecarlo Automobile. The Rascasse gets its unique name from a corner in the Monte Carlo circuit. Only 15 Rascasses are set to be built.

Powering the Montecarlo Automobile Rascasse is a mid-mounted 5.4-liter V12 engine sourced from BMW. It puts out 500 horsepower and is powered by both gasoline and hydrogen-enriched LPG. Montecarlo Automobile plans to release a hybrid version of the Rascasse that will be supercharged and feature all-wheel drive. The Montecarlo Automobile Rascasse is set to sell for around $600,000 and is sure to be snapped up by collectors looking to own a piece of automotive history.
