Did you know there was such a thing as Montecarlo Automobile?  Well, it’s one of Montecarlo’s oldest car brands, and its out with a new supercar.  Dubbed the Rascasse, the new supercar looks a bit like a mix of a Ferrari Enzo, a Ford GT, and hints of a Porsche Carrera GT.  A pretty and exotic design, but doesn’t seem like anything too out of the ordinary.  All in all, we’re sure it is striking in person.  Inside you’ll find very Monte Carlo touches with abundant wood and yachting cues that contribute a solid amount of this car’s uniqueness.  Under hood you’ll find a BMW 5.4-liter V12 (same which was used in the ’98 – ’02 RR Silver Seraph) good for 500 horsepower.  What is more interesting, though, is that Montecarlo Automobile is scheduled to reveal a supercharged, hybrid rendition on the motor later this year as part of the brand’s 30th anniversary.  Expect the naturally aspirated Racasse to demand about $655,000.
