Ever dreamt of owning an Italiano-Supercar-Rarebreed that still keeps the combustion engine alive? Well, Italdesign is here to help.
Owned by the Volkswagen Audi Group, the “Italdesign Automobili Special” brand will be manufacturing only five of these Anteater-like Front end, taking care of the exotic end.
The power comes from the Volkswagen borrowed 5.2 litre V 10 engine mounted onto a modular Carbon Fibre cum Aluminum chassis with complete Carbon Fibre bodywork, which pushes the car to a top speed of 205+ mph, cracking the tonne in a mere 3.2 seconds. That’s fighting waters with the Porsches and the Ferraris!
Customers will have an option to customise it according to their own needs- anyways the rich are spoilt for choice! The full unveiling of the exotica will be done during the Geneva Motorshow.
