We have to admit that we were a little disappointed when we saw the Carlsson C25 in person. The finished product doesn’t seem to quite have the ultra-aggressive look of the original concept sketches. It could also be that we’re not huge fans of the silver, black and orange paint scheme, nor of the brown and orange interior. In Carlsson’s defense, the color combination was chosen by their customer, and we’d like to see another version in a solid color and a better choice of interior hues before we declare a verdict.

Even so, the C25 is an impressive beast. Under the hood is a Carlsson-built 6.0-liter twin-turbo V12 putting out 753 horsepower and 974 lb-ft of torque, good for a conservatively listed 3.7 second sprint to 100 km/h and a top speed of just under 220 mph. To also appeal to potential clients, Carlsson has made exclusivity a top priority, limiting production to just 25 units and selling only one example in each country where they’re available. As is proven by the car you see here, customers can choose from a near-limitless range of exterior and interior color combinations.
