When the Ares Design chopped the roof of the S1 hypercar

Recently, the business of the Italian coachbuilder company Ares Design has really stood out, this can be seen after previously through its S1 Project, Ares Design launched its newest stunning S1 coupe-styled  hypercar at the Privé Salon event at Blenheim Palace in England in September 2020.

Then 1 month after the event, to be precise in October 2020, the Modena-based coachbuilder again announced the S1 figure in a roofless style called the Ares Design S1 Spyder. Yes, like its sibling, this spyder model still uses the center-mounted 6.2-liter V8 engine from the Corvette C8.

As before, Ares Design has managed to offer some amazing creations based on some of the best sports cars today. For example, the Ares Panther ProgettoUno as a modern version of De Tomaso Pantera which uses the Lamborghini Huracan as its base, so for the Ares's current S1 Project, the resulted cars based on the Chevrolet Corvette C8.

But unlike its donor car which is only capable of producing 495 hp, the Italian coachbuilder company has modified the V8 engine so that it can produce 715 hp which is sent to the rear wheels via an 8-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission system.

As we all know, that the S1 Project Spyder not only produces more power than the Vette, but also has a higher engine speed. Now the V8 engine is capable of reaching 8,800 rpm, and this makes this supercar capable of accelerating from rest to 100 kph in just 2.7 seconds. Even more amazing, Ares Design made this increase in power without using a supercharger device.

Due to have no roof, the automaker then included two wind deflectors, which act as virtual canopies to direct the airflow over the car. The Corvette's interior already feels top-notch, but Ares makes the cabin even more unique.

Ares co-founder Dany Bahar said: “We are always planning a Spyder version of Project S1, and ever since we revealed the car last month the reactions have been fantastic, so we are excited to release the details of S1 Project Spyder. We wanted to make a model that is a true tribute to the pleasure of riding in sport. This new version of the barchetta adds to the design charm of the S1 Project, as it takes additional inspiration from the motorsport world and race cars of the past."
Like its sibling, the S1 coupé, the automaker will only produce as much 24 units the roofless version of the hypercar, starting in 2021 at its factory in Modena, Italy. At the moment Ares Design has yet to release the price of this super-spyder, and it will likely be more expensive than the coupe, which sells for around US $ 650,000. Let's just wait when the S1 super-spyder comes to the world. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | ARES DESIGN | ROBBREPORT ]
