JOSS Supercar (un-named)
JOSS Developments Limited developed the JP1 which is Australia's first supercar.
The first test vehicle, known as the JT1, was designed, engineered and subsequently launched in 2004. It was shown to the public at the Melbourne, Adelaide and Sydney Motorshows to critical acclaim, and established the company as a serious supercar operation. The prototype vehicles achieved performance figures in testing with an acceleration time of 0-100 km/h in 3.0 seconds and a quarter mile time of 11.7 seconds at 130 miles per hour (210 km/h).
The JOSS JT1 can be seen in the Xbox 360 video games PGR3 and PGR4 (although at that point no actual road-going car existed), as well as in Forza Motorsport 3, Forza Motorsport 4, and Forza Horizon.
Following customer feedback, additional external investment and other technological developments, the company embarked upon their mid-engined production version, internally code-named the JOSS JP1. Production is set for 2013 with 25 produced each year at a price above $500,000.


JOSS Developments Limited was founded by Technical Director Matthew Thomas, an automotive designer who has worked for many years around the world for companies such as Stewart Grand Prix, Bentley, Jaguar and Aston Martin.
The early version of car, the JT1, had only one colour, being somewhat close to a sky blue, though the car has been photographed with its production team in white. The revised JP-1 has been seen in a number of colours as the team run through the vehicles development.
