Here's the all-electric Maserati's radical-looks hypercar inspired by its racing legacy

Reportedly, the Italian trident-logoed sports car manufacturer, Maserati, after successfully launching its newest supercar, the Maserati MC20 in 2020, will soon enter the world of electric-powered vehicles. And then the manufacturer said that it had started testing an electric drive system that would complement future the Maserati models.
Maserati Neptune Concept, a single-seat electric-powered supercar concept is designed by Salvatore Andrea Piccirillo and inspired by the Maserati 250F lagendary race car of the 1950s. (Picture from: HotCars)
And it is also mentioned that in 2022 the Maserati MC20 will also be powered by three electric motors which are claimed to be able to spew more power. It is also mentioned that there are already another several experimental vehicles that have used the electric motors that applied the latest Maserati's technology which was fully developed in their own laboratory in Modena, Italy. They will come soon.
The legendary Maserati 250F of the 1950s known as the inspiration source for the Maserati Neptune Concept. (Picture from: Wikipedia)
But what if the Modena-based manufacturer dared to present a radical form of an electric-powered supercar. Maybe through the following concept, a famous car and yacht designer named Salvatore Andrea Piccirillo intended to be the answer of that question. Well, in a brilliant way, he poured out a radical design idea of a single-seat electric-powered supercar concept called the Maserati Neptune Concept. Its name is coincidentally a translation for 'Nettuno,' the engine name installed on Maserati MC20 supercar.
The Maserati Neptune Concept has plenty of void space in the middle, seem uses a Formula E racecar platform featuring super-sized wheels and arching lines that connect them, this pixel exercise easily stimulates the mind. (Picture from: Techeblog)
Conceptually, the mentioned supercar is not meant to be a rival to the upcoming electric-powered MC20 supercar variant, but rather solely an envisioned with all-electric powered single-seat supercar is inspired by the legendary Maserati 250F race car. As stated by the designer of Maserati Neptune Concept, that the vision is a homage to the legendary Maserati 250F, that has been driven by legends like Stirling Moss, Juan Manuel Fangio and Maria Teresa de Filippis (as the first Formula-1 woman driver).
The Maserati Neptune Concept is powered by 3 electric motors, the main one is on the front of the car while the other two are attached on each its rear wheels. (Picture from: Techeblog)
"Maserati Neptune wants to take back the original 250F layout, but with a different shape and proportions. A particular attention to the Maserati's classic race car wore the racing livery number three, that is an important element in the history of Maserati is echoed in some details. There is 3 electric motors, the main one is on the front of the car while the other two are attached on each its rear wheels," Andrea Piccirillo said further.
While the Maserati Neptune Concept's batteries are hidden behind the main engine and inside the car monocoque. (Picture from: Worldlesstech)
But according to Autoevolution, the supercar appears with its unusual construction, which features plenty of void space in the middle, this virtual creation looks more like a sculpture than anything else. Nevertheless, the layout owes to the fact that, under the top side of the electric-powered vehicle, we've found a Formula E racecar platform featuring super-sized wheels and arching lines that connect them, this pixel exercise easily stimulates the mind. While the batteries are hidden behind the main engine and inside the car monocoque.
The engineering is thought to bring Formula E technology into a Granturismo concept, that’s a remarkable element in the history of Maserati. For this reason, Maserati Neptune Concept has an unique driver position, that is like a Formula 1 seat. 

This can be translated as the implementation of the brand's racing DNA taken of the legendary Maserati 250F when it raced on the Formula-1 racetrack in the 1950s, so one can easily imagine the emotions of legendary drivers such Juan Manuel Fangio or Stirling Moss when riding this creation. Too bad, it's just an imaginary car.😉 *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | YANKO DESIGN | WORLDLESSTECH | AUTOEVOLUTION | TECHEBLOG | HOTCARS ]

Another Switzerland hypercar of Morand Cars

We are still in Switzerland, after some time ago we discussed about the Picasso PS-01, a supercar made by a Swiss company called Picasso Automotive. Soon there's another Swiss company, Morand Cars followed the step by launching its first hypercar in 2023 which is claimed to be able to reach a maximum speed of up to 400 kph.
Morand Hypercar-Swiss Made built by Morrand Cars and will launching in 2023 which is claimed to be able to reach a maximum speed of up to 400 kph. (Picture from: Autocar)
And the Morand Cars itself is an automotive company founded by Benoit Morand who is known as the former manager of the racing team at the Le Mans Championship along with Eric Boullier who also has a background in developing super fast cars in F1, ever involved in the Lotus F1 team as Team Manager and has also served as Race Director in the McLaren F1 team.

As quoted of Autocar, the Morand Hypercar-Swiss Made is built into 2 models, namely a hybrid and all-electric model by using a carbon fiber monocoque chassis, while the body structure is made of a lightweight and sturdy composite material called Amplitex. So that some parts such as the hood, doors, wings, seats, and interior spaces are made of Amplitex Bcomp. Although the material is light, Amplitex is said to have a heavier mass than carbon fiber but has passed through a valid crash test with satisfactory results.

Meanwhile, for the drivetrain, as for the hybrid model will rely on a bespoke, 5.2-litre, naturally aspirated V10 engine capable of producing a maximum power of up to 690 hp and a maximum torque of 542 Nm. To support the car's hybrid system also installed three electric motors that work to drive the wheels and then coupled with the Xtrac's 7-speed manual-automatic transmission system. The car maker also stated that the hybrid model could be driven a distance of 50 km by using is electric motors alone.
Although the material is light, Amplitex is said to have a heavier mass than carbon fiber but has passed through a valid crash test with satisfactory results. (Picture from: Autocar)
As for the all-electric model will be powered by four permanent magnet motors is mounted on all-four wheels, and is said to be capable of producing a maximum power of up to 1,950 hp to drive its four wheels. The power comes from a 400 kg weighted battery with a capacity of 70 kWh and generates power of 1,400 kW.
Morand Hypercar-Swiss Made prototype will be launched this year, in which the hybrid model will be introduced first, and the all-electric model will follow later in 2022. (Picture from: Autocar)
In addition, Morand Cars is also focusing on fast battery charging technology to embed on the all-electric model. The company targets all of its electric-powered hypercars to be able to fully charge the battery in 12 minutes by using a 350 kW charger or seven minutes faster if using a 560 kW charger.

While on the hybrid model, Morand Cars will use a new type of storage device to support its 300 kW battery system with a 4.5 kWh supercapacitor which is intended to maintain the car weight under 1,250 kg even if it carries a battery and engine.
The plan, the Morand Cars hypercar prototype will be launched this year, in which the hybrid model will be introduced first, and the all-electric model will follow later in 2022. However, so far there is no more detailed information about the hypercar which is only produced in limited numbers (ie only 73 units worldwide), but the Swiss company has priced its hypercar ranging of €1.7M or around Rp.29 billions. In our opinion that's a quite fair price for such a limited-production hypercar. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | MORAND-CARS | AUTOCAR ]

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.
The Picasso PS-01 supercar is a Switzerland supercar powered by an 600 hp twin-turbo V6 Italian-made engine. (Picture from: Id.Motor1)
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 Picasso PS-01 supercar has the compact coupe shape that flaunts a prominent rear archs in beetwen flowing lines, and makes it look very aerodynamic. (Picture from: OtoBlitz)
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.
The Picasso PS-01 supercar is designed by Roberto Curto and all the bodywork construction done from scratch and entirely done by a new company called Ticino. (Picture from: Supercars)
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 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. (Picture from: OtoBlitz)
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 ]

The legendary Callaway 'Aerobody' Sledgehammer

As the world's fast car fans, we will be very enthusiastic when discussing about the fastest car in the world. Well until now, there're many fast cars ever had been recorded as 'The fastest car in the world.' And we all know that the title is now carried by an American-made hypercar named the SSC Tuatarra which was able to record a top speed of 533 kph at the 7-miles length road in Nevada back in October 2020.
The Callaway Sledgehammer was built by Reeves Callaway in his Connecticut-based workshop in 1988 as a testbed for reliable and dependable power with a turbocharged V8 engine. (Picture from: Supercars)
Although the SSC Tuatarra currently holds that title, but it is not the first American hypercar to surpass the fantastic 250 mph benchmark, there're several other American cars such as the Hennessey Venom F5 and Venom GT. And then back to the end of 1980s, have you heard of another American car called the Callaway Sledgehammer which once held the title as the fastest in 1988 with a top speed notch that surpassed those 250 mph benchmark?
The Callaway Sledgehammer is fitted with a low-drag C4 shell known simply as the AeroBody of Paul Deutschman. (Picture from: BringaTrailer)
The car was built by Reeves Callaway in his Connecticut-based workshop in 1988 as a testbed for reliable and dependable power with a turbocharged V8. In addition, he also wanted to set new performance benchmarks, then commissioned by a Canadian named Paul Deutschman to build with a low-drag C4 shell known simply as the AeroBody.
The Callaway Sledgehammer still maintains the luxury in its cabin including power windows and locks, audio system, electronic air conditioning, and power sports seats. (Picture from: BringaTrailer)
The car based of the new 1988 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 powered by an upgraded V8 turbocharging engine using a NASCAR specification block with Mahle pistons and forged connecting rods. Besides embedding racing devices on the drivetrain, it turns out that the Sledgehammer is also installed with a roll cage like a racing car that functions as a cabin protector.

Then at the top end is installed Brodix aluminum heads fed by twin Turbonetics T04B turbochargers, so that with all the racing equipment it is able to make the Callaway Sledgehammer run with an optimal power boost of 898 hp and 772 lb-ft of torque.

Although it has the ability to run like a racing car, the Callaway's sportscar still maintains the luxury in its cabin including power windows and locks, audio system, electronic air conditioning, and power sports seats as supporting factors for driving comfort.
The Callaway Sledgehammer had set the fastest speed of 254.76 mph (409.99 kph) while tested in October 1988 at the Transportation Research Center (TRC) proving ground in Ohio with John Lingenfelter behind the wheel. (Picture from: BringaTrailer)
When it tested in October 1988 at the Transportation Research Center (TRC) proving ground in Ohio with John Lingenfelter behind the wheel, this car was able to record a record of 254.76 mph (409.99 kph) and had made it the fastest street-legal car for some time before the record was surpassed by the Bugatti Veyron. After that, Deutschman continued to work for Callaway for years to come, so the Sledgehammer AeroBody was produced in limited numbers (though it is not known how many were ever made).
But some time ago as quoted of the Road and Track, this is the only Sledgehammer in existence and is currently listed for sale at Bring a Trailer which has currently recorded the highest bid of $500,000 (23 May 2021). We wouldn't be surprised to see that, as devoted Corvette collectors would be willing to pay big bucks to own it. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | SUPERCARS | TWITTER | ROADANDTRACK | TOPGEAR | BRINGATRAILER ]

Estrema Fulminea, an Italian monstrous-powered elegant hypercar will be launched in the 2023

Currently, many know that electric-powered cars are capable of spewing out higher power than conventional petrol-engined cars. The electric cars are known for their constant power since the lower rate. However, until now, not many electric-powered cars have appeared as hypercars. And what happens if there is a hyper electric car that is claimed to produce more than two thousand horsepower? Here's the answer.
Estrema Fulminea is an electric-powered hypercar featutued with a low-profiled hypercar-style design. (Picture from: Automobili Estrema)
Well, recently an Italian automotive company named Automobili Estrema reported that they will soon launch an electric-powered hypercar called the Estrema Fulminea, which comes in azzuro blue colored and with a low-profiled hypercar-style design. The car was built to have aerodynamics and with a tapered design line resembled to the Ferrari's car breeds, while the taillights are made thinner than the headlights to emphasize the sporty impression of the Fulminea.
Estrema Fulminea is powered by the Avesta Battery Energy Engineering (ABEE) "hybrid" Lithium-ion batteries that combines an ultracapacitor cell battery and a solid-state battery. (Picture from: Tempo)
It's not only the design that makes this car intriguing, but also from its innards. The Fulminea uses the Avesta Battery Energy Engineering (ABEE) "hybrid" Lithium-ion batteries that combines an ultracapacitor cell battery and a solid-state battery. The two kind of batteries work together and are claimed to have a total capacity of 100 kWh with an energy density of 500 Wh/kg.
Estrema Fulminea's 'hybrid' batteries diagram (combined an ultracapacitor cell battery and a solid-state battery) which channelled the power to drive the electric motor mounted on all four wheels. (Picture from: MSN)
Then the battery is claimed to be able to carry the Estrema Fulminea hypercar to run as far as 520 kilometers according to the standards of the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP). Then its charging capability, the company claimed that the ABBE hybrid batteries can be quickly charged with the DC currents from 10% to 80% in just 15 minutes.

From the sophistication of its 4 electric motors, so the Fulminea hypercar is claimed to have a maximum power of up to 1.5 MW or equivalent of 2,040 horsepower. The Italian company is claimed, by such power can make the Fulminea accelerates up to 320 kilometers per hour in less than 10 seconds. Wow! Of course this is a figure for achieving a very fast acceleration for a hypercar.
The Estrema Fulminea will be ready to run on the streets in the next two years and also priced at €1.961 million or around Rp.34.1 billion. "The first delivery (Fulminea) to selected consumers is scheduled for the second half of 2023," as quoted of Top Gear. So, let's just wait if You want to see it for real!! *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | AUTOMOBILI ESTREMA | TOPGEAR | MSN ]

All-new Naran GT3-style hyper coupe

Well, this time it is the turn of a British startup company called Naran Automotive which on November 25, 2020, presented a new 4-seats configuration car called Naran Hyper Coupe, whose design is inspired by the GT3 race car and is planned to be produced in a limited number, ie as much 49 units only.
Naran Hyper Coupe is bulit by Naran Automotive as a new 4-seats road legal car whose design inspired by the GT3 race car. (Picture from: Id.Motor1.com)
Actually referring to the term of the GT3 race car is a mass production car that is converted into a racing car. But in this case what the Naran Automotive is doing is the opposite, namely making a road-legal car inspired by the GT3 race cars. But that's okay, instead the British company claims that its newest car would be made and offered the GT3 race car driving sensation on the roads.
Naran Hyper Coupe is pinned a twin-turbocharged 5.0 liter V8 engine concocted by a German racing specialist company named Racing Dynamics. (Picture from: BlackExperience)
By carrying the GT3 race car theme, the Naran's car is powered by a front mid-engine configuration uses aggressive body kit elements all over its body. Including the front slitter, rear wing, rear diffuser and others. According to them, this design element does not only function as a mere aesthetic. But it also serves to increase downforce up to 1.4 tons.

The car body itself is made of carbon composite and featured with the 22-inches size alloy wheels are made of hyrdo-carbon material. On the car inside, Naran Sports wears flax carbon trim which is claimed to be the first in the world. This material is very light but environmentally friendly because it breaks down easily in nature. In addition, this material has the ability to absorb vibrations like carbon fiber.

Under its long snout is pinned a twin-turbocharged 5.0 liter V8 engine concocted by a German racing specialist company named Racing Dynamics. The car engine is capable spew power of 1,048 hp and 1,035 Nm of torque. Those powers were able to bring the Naran's coupe accelerated from a standstill to a speed of 100 kph in just 2.3 seconds and speed up to the top speed of 370 kph.
Naran Hyper Coupe actually uses an all-wheel drive system, but can change to rear-wheel drive whenever desired only by pressed a single button. (Picture from: BlackExperience)
Actually, the car uses an all-wheel drive system. However, there is a switch inside of the car that can change to rear-wheel drive whenever desired. The Naran's hypercar stands on a double wishbone suspension with Ohlins for-way adjustable damping. The brakes use carbon-ceramic brakes and hydraulic steering rack as its racing standard features.
The Naran Automotive said its car's driving dynamics were developed in conjunction with the EY3 Engineering and Daniel Mense. The last name mentioned is the person who responsible for creating the record for a single lap of the Nurburgring Circuit by the Chinese Nio EP9 electric-powered car in 2017.

The plan, the Naran Hyper Coupe will make its debut in this year (2021). How much is it? Until now, the Naran Automotive not been released it yet. Be patient...! *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | NARAN AUTOMOTIVE | ID.MOTOR1.COM | TECHZLE ]

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 PrivĂ© Salon event at Blenheim Palace in England in September 2020. 
The Ares Design chopped the roof of the S1 hypercar and changed it into the gorgeous S1 Spyder. (Picture from Robbreport)
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.
The Ares Design S1 Spyder looks like a modern take on one of the race cars you see in sepia-colored photos of old grand prix races. (Picture from Robbreport)
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.
Due to have no roof, the automaker then included two wind deflectors, which act as virtual canopies of Ares Design S1 Spyder to direct the airflow over the car. (Picture from Robbreport)
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 the Ares Design S1 Spyder have no roof also allow’s the car’s flowing carbon-fiber body to blend seamlessly into its luxe, Napa leather and Alcantra-covered interior.. (Picture from Modifikasi)
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.
Similar to its coupe sibling, the Ares Design S1 Spyder built based on the Chevrolet Corvette C8, and is pinned an upgraded C8 engine so it able spew power of 715 hp. (Picture from Modifikasi)
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 ]

Ares Design S1 as limited-run NA V8 engined hypercar

An Italian coachbuilder company called Ares Design which was founded and run by the former Lotus boss Dany Bahar together with his Dubai-based business partner, Waleed Al Ghafari. To support its business activities, in 2018 the company built a 23,000 sqm design and engineering facility in Modena, Italy.
Ares Design S1 is a new road legal hypercar powered by a naturally aspirated V8 engine capable puts out 705 bhp of power and is claimed to spin up to the 8,800rpm redline for "its fiercest roar". (Picture from: Autoevolution)
From this company, it has been noted that so many exotic car models have been produced, and here are several exotic car models made by Ares Design (had ever discussed and published in Trussty) as follow; the Ares Rolls Royce Wraith in 2015 then the C2 Corvette StingRay, Wami Lalique Spyder in 2018, and the Panther ProgettoUno in 2019.

And the Modena-based company again showcased its work in the form of a new road legal hypercar powered by a naturally aspirated engine named Ares Design S1 at the Privé Salon event at Blenheim Palace in the UK in September 2020. The car on display at the event was a full-size model and reportedly, will be produced in limited only 24 units in 2021.
Ares Design S1 hypercar body was shaped by computational fluid dynamics (CFD) for “maximum downforce and minimum aerodynamic resistance” and is created from “hand-crafted” carbonfibre panels. (Picture from: Autoevolution)
The S1 project is claimed to have been built in simple terms: "A car consisting of a hypercar design, supercar performance and a sports car price tag". While no pricing has been announced yet, it would  suggest that the S1 Project will be more affordable than the usual crop of low-volume, bespoke hypercars.

The body is shaped by computational fluid dynamics (CFD) for "maximum downforce and minimum aerodynamic resistance" and is constructed from "handcrafted" carbon fiber panels. Uniquely the mid-engined hypercar exhausts are protruded out of the bonnet, as in the Porsche 918 Spyder.
The all-new Ares Design S1 hypercar is powered by a naturally aspirated V8 engine borrowed from the Corvette C8. The unit puts out 705 bhp of power and is claimed to spin up to the 8,800rpm redline for "its fiercest roar". The C8's drivetrain is mated to an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox and has a specific ECU tune and bespoke exhaust system.

With its aerodynamic and lightweight body, this road legal hypercar can accelerate from rest to 100 kph in just 2.7 seconds. Unfortunately no weight figures are given for this hypercar. We do know,  however, that it features double-wishbone suspension, forged aluminium axles and adaptive ride control for a “potent yet uncomplicated drive”.
Ares Design S1 hypercar cabin design looks quite beautiful and luxurious with a touch of hand-stitched leather and Alcantara, plus high-tech user interfaces and a separate touchscreen for the passenger. (Picture from: TopSpeed)
As for the interior, although it can only be seen from the rendering image that shows the car cabin design seem similar with the Corvette-owned, and even looks more beautiful and quite luxurious with a touch of hand-stitched leather and Alcantara, plus high-tech user interfaces and a separate touchscreen for the passenger.
Supercar Blondie, a well-known automotive vlogger become the first buyer of the Ares Design S1. (Picture from: Autoevolution)
Due to it uses several parts from the Corvette, the S1 car's owner can also do service at a Chevrolet dealer. Ares Design has also confirmed that every S1 unit that will be produced will be a truly special car. So that each customer will be involved in the making process of the car for 10 months.

As quoted of Autoevolution, Supercar Blondie, a well-known automotive vlogger become the first buyer of the Ares Design S1 and said that she paid around US $ 650,000 or roughly Rp. 9.5 billion for an S1. Even though previously the hypercar price is predicted to be more than US $ 1million or approx Rp. 15 billion. How lucky she is.
Furthermore, the world's most famous female automotive vlogger said that the Ares Design S1 is her dream car because it combines the look and performance of a hypercar with the practicality of driving. Even according to her, the S1 belong to her will be shipped early next year and to be the first unit sent by Ares Design to the customers.

And she also promised to upload a video of the results of her visit to Modena for see the making process of her S1 hypercar, including also asking for advice from netizens about suitable colors for the exterior and interior of her new car. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | ARES DESIGN | AUTOCAR | AUTOEVOLUTION | TOPSPEED | HOTCARS ]
