Bucci Special: first images
At the 2013 Buenos Aires Auto Show Argentinian company Bucci has revealed its first supercar – a two-seater speedster with a V12 engine.
The company was founded by late Argentinian Formula One driver Clemar Bucci, who passed away in 2011 and could not see his project completed.
Now the Special is being developed under Bucci’s nephew Paul Bucci, who is planning to start a limited production series.
The car is based on a tubular steel chassis and has a carbon fiber body panels, while power comes from a 7.3 liter V12 Mercedes-Benz/AMD engine – the same that equips the Pgani Zonda – delivering 600 hp and coupled with a six speed transmission reportedly supplied by Pagani.
The design features very compact dimensions, with a total length of 4 meters and a height of just 87 cm., and has some reminiscences of the Pininfarina Ferrari Rossa Concept (2000) – especially in the surface treatment of the side and rear sections.
The Bucci Special is currently on display at the 2013 Buenos Aires Auto Show (19-30 June 2013).
