Here's the Switzerland high modern artwork translated into the Picasso PS-01 supercar

It might be seem a little odd that Switzerland, which is usually not very close to the automotive industry and also is very strict prohibits the presence of polluting vehicles to be there, turn out has many automotive companies and one of them is Picasso Automotive, a Lugano-based small car manufacturer and reportedly has the backing of international investors, enabling it to realize its vision of making limited-run sports cars and supercars with a focus on an unmatched power-to-weight ratio.

Recently, the Swiss company tried to be teasing speed connoisseurs while presented a teaser of its first automotive product, ie a lightweight supercar known as the Picasso PS-01, while its name was taken after its CEO and founder, Stefano Picasso. Hopely, through the supercar launching could be changed slowly the world's automotive societe opinion about the country.

The latest supercar is said to have a fairly light weight of only 1,984 lbs (approx 900 kilos), thanks to the use of body panels made of the large-sized carbon fiber materials (measuring of 10.5 ft/3.2 m) and is said to be the largest ever used for the car construction.

Another special features pined is the rear subframe which is inspired by the LMP2 endurance race car and is entirely made of carbon fiber as well. Besides made of the material mentioned above, the car body also constructed of the composite materials, and all the bodywork construction developed from scratch and entirely done by a new company called Ticino.

The Picasso PS-01 bodywork was designed by Roberto Curto with the engine placement in the middle and it looks like the Picasso supercar will rely on a twin-turbo V6 drivetrain which is said to be capable of spewing power of 600 hp, and was adopted from the best Italian made engine (the brand has not been mentioned yet).
The development of the Picasso PS-01 supercar also involved a number of well-known partners and is expected to be completed in the spring of 2021. (Picture from: Supercars)
As we could be seen on the teaser of the supercar produced by the Swiss automaker, it has the compact coupe shape that flaunts a prominent rear archs in beetwen flowing lines, and makes it look very aerodynamic. It seems Picasso Automotive want to describe it as the supercar shaped by the wind flows. Other notable features include a large rear wing and air vents on the hood also meant to be an effective cooling system for its mid-engine.

It is noted that a number of well-known partners also contributed to the Picasso's supercar development project, one of which the Ohlins is a renowned brand that also produces shock absorbers for the Pagani Huayra BC. Meanwhile, the Carbo Brake will supply brake devices, its gearbox components coming from the Sadev, the Sabelt for the seat and the 3D Beta for workshop equipment.
The company said that the first unit of Picasso PS-01 supercar is under developing in Lugano, Switzerland, with its first on-track trials to be carried out in the near future, and the car expected to be completed in the spring of 2021. 

So far, information about how many will be produced and the price per unit has not been released yet by the Swiss company. We'll just have to wait for further news from them. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | ID.MOTOR1 | PICASSO AUTOMOTIVE | SUPERCARS ]
