A new Polish company is planning to build a sportscar one-off inspired by the Syrena Sport, a prototype built in Poland by FSO in the late 1950s.


The Syrena Sport was a prototype designed and built in the late 1950s by a group of engineers working at FSO (Fabryka Samochodów Osobowych). The car never reached production due to general economic and political reasons.

The Syrena Sport had a design inspired by the Ferrari models of the time, a fiberglass body mounted on a steel chassis and a 2-cylinder air-cooled boxer engine.

Now a new Poland-based team is planning to revive this sportscar with a one-off based on the Nissan 370Z. The exterior of the new Syrena Sport was penned by Pavlo Burkatskyy, who also designed the Arrinera Hussarya supercar.

The prototype will be equipped with a a 3.7 liter V6 engine – in both aspirated and turbocharged versions – delivering 330 and 450 hp respectively. The total mass will be under 1,300 kg, also thanks to the lightweight, hand built composite body.
