Little-known German car company Lotec has released limited details of the facelift to its Sirius supercar which, in its "base model", puts out a serious 735 kW.

Along with a fresh appearance, Sirius's upgrade will also allow the supercar to touch the magical 400-km/h mark and take a swipe at the Bugatti Veyron and SSC Ultimate Aero.

Details remain scarce, but Lotec hopes to achieve this with a bi-turbo 6.0-litre V12 sourced from Mercedes-Benz that in its most basic iteration will produce 735 kW and 1 100 Nm of torque.

However, for those who feel the power won't quite fulfill their needs, an 882-kW version is offered, too. 

Sirius was first introduced as a concept in 2000.
