This was built to the same criteria as a F1 car, adapted to the demands of road driving, and was the fruit of research carried out by an experienced manufacturer who has designed and built 45 racing models and innumerable GT and Sport models. The engine-gearbox-differential assembly, of F1 origin, supports the rear axle assembly and is fastened to the carbon fibre chassis. The body is in carbon fibre composite, to bring out the car's sporty personality and is available in two versions: a Berlinetta with integral hardtop, and a Barchetta, with an aerodynamic element incorporating two anti-roll safety bars attached to the chassis.
