Have You ever seen this Enzo-based supercar?

Supercar manufacturers ranging from large to newly emerging many scattered throughout the world to meet the demand of exotic car enthusiasts, namely those billionaires who are known to have a lot of money.

Usually, well-known manufacturers bring up one model in a limited number, thereby contributing to limit ownership of that model. So many enthusiasts of exotic cars are forced to be disappointed because they cannot have it.

This gave rise to a niche in the market which was then used by other manufacturers to use it. For example, when Ferrari has launched the Ferrari Enzo supercar masterpiece in 2002 to 2004 and produced in limited quantities (only 400 units worldwide). So you can imagine how rare the supercar was.

Because the Ferrari Enzo does have its own charm, in addition to being made in very limited quantities, the car is also specifically designed to honor the Enzo Ferrari (the company founder). In addition, the pride of the Ferrari car has a super high price, and the Enzo is no longer produced. So that many Ferrari fans become disappointed because they can not have it.

But don't worry, because from a deep Alpine valley on the Swiss-Italian border comes the mad-as-a-hatter Simbol Design Lavazza GTX-R supercar. If it’s as sinister as its dark-sounding home town of Crevoladossola, it should be quite a ride. This high-powered machine has been in drawn-out development and prototype testing since 2004.

Simbol Design, formerly Automobili Lavazza — not to be confused with Italy’s biggest coffee company — was founded in 1975 by Enrico Lavazza. For years he produced racing prototypes, kit cars, and replicas. The company was rebranded in 2005 when Enrico’s son Fabio took the reins.

This supercar has a shape that is almost similar to the Ferrari Enzo, especially on the front, then when looking at the top there's a roof scoop that immediately reminds us of the figure of Pagani Zonda. So it can be said that the car has a slick combined design of Ferrari Enzo and Pagani Zonda.

But the difference, the Lavazza GTX-R uses a V12 BMW-owned engine, which has a capacity of 5,400 cc which able to spew power up to 489 horsepower and combined with 6-speed electro-pneumatic transmission system. Although it is called the Enzo wannabe, the GTX-R's performance is not embarrassing, because the car can accelerate from 0 to 100 kph in just 4.3 seconds.

The car body is made of carbon-Kevlar built atop a tubular steel frame resulting in a total mass of just 1,080 kg. With a body like that, it's no wonder that this vehicle has been turning heads. The car also comes in two types, convertible coupes, and roadsters.
Although not specified in detail, but in that time the automaker assured that the car has a price that is much cheaper than the original Enzo. As quoted from MoneyWeek in 2010, the car price estimated at around £270,000 (or approx Rp.5 billion). Until now, We never knew how many the GTX-R cars ever built? Or do you wanna see another supercar creation made of the Ferrari Enzo named Gemballa MIG-U1?

As if it suddenly became a mystery, since we can't access the company official sites @ https://www.simboldesign.com/ No info whether the manufacturer is still active or not?  *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | CHECK HOOK BOXING | MONEYWEEK | CARBUZZ | THE TIMES | AUTOBLOG]
