Hey, you! Yeah, you! You want a gorgeous and mega-quick retro-modern sports car that's affordable enough that your wife won't hate you and threaten to divorce you like she did that one time you looked at that hypercar? Well, look no further! Presenting the 2020 Peregrine Taipan! World-beating performance for a fraction of the cost of your average supercar. Take a look at these specs right here, m'kay, because they're epic!

As you can see, this car is a beast. With a 0-60 time of just 2.1 seconds on a prepped surface, and a trap speed in excess of 145 mph, this car is unbeatable on the 1320. However, the strip is far from its specialty. Oh no - the engineers and designers at Peregrine have worked hard to make the Taipan a beast around the track too. With its incredible grip, superb composure and explosive power, this is a car that can decimate most supercars, and even some race cars, at a fraction of the cost.
And all this speed, power, handling and tech, wrapped in a gorgeous retro-modern body, can be yours for just $74,600. (Or, well, since this is Beam, all you have to do is subscribe to the mod, but, well, I'm trying to make this somewhat immersive, okay? Just... Just try it, you'll love it. I promise!)
- Felgen for the stunning body
- BeamNG GmbH for the amazing game
- Camshaft Software for Automation and the exporter
- ElMenduko for the invisible wings that allow me to replicate the function of the ducktail spoiler and rear diffuser so the car doesn't generate lift at high speeds
- Reiko's CF Emolga for making the car that inspired this one. It's called the Outlaw Bullet GT and you can check it out here!
