“This is done first by conducting an ergonomical study of the measurements of the driver, then by using the materials of his or her choice and, finally, by differentiating each unit with an engraving of a poetic verse in the chassis of the car.”

Depending on the customer’s rquirements, the insertions can be made of the finest materials: wood, stainless steel, gold, etc. The wood, for example, is treated with very ancient Japanese method, URUSHI (natural lacquer).

The technical features include a central V12 bi-turbo engine that delivers more than 700 horsepower.

The body panels are made of carbon fibre and the underneath aluminium structure combines an indeformable central zone with eight other zones of shock absorption. According to the Costa Brava-based company, “these characteristics offer such a safety level that is comparable to a professional racing car.”

The cabin has two tandem-like seats, that give the driver and passenger a racing-like sensantion.
