Australia has long had a fascination with fast cars, but until Joss came along the biggest island in the world didn’t have a single homegrown supercar. Born in the backyard of aerodynamicist Matt Thomas, the Joss is named after a tough-as-nails Australian miner and unapologetically seeks to do battle at the 24 Hours of Le Mans with the big boys. The JT1 certainly has the bits to mix it up with the likes of Ferrari and Pagani, with a 6.8-liter mid-mounted V8 of a unique Joss design, and a lightweight, incredibly stiff composite chassis. The neatest trick the Joss supercar pulls off is managing to create lots of useful downforce without any unsightly spoilers sprouting out of the bodywork. As an aerodynamicist, Thomas insisted that every single piece on the car had to have a dual purpose. For example, the fender extractors not only ventilate the brakes, they also act as vortex generators to generate downforce along the sides of the car. With innovative thinking like this infusing every aspect of the JT1’s development, and top-flight componentry throughout, it’s a supercar Australia can be proud to call its own.
