The Barchetta is a 2-seater open top speedster, inspired by the design language of 1950s motorsport. Its sleek, sweeping curves and low profile disclose its Anglo-Italian parentage.
The formal unveiling took place on Friday 12th September at Goodwood Revival, with members of the Barchetta production team in attendance.
Each vehicle is designed and built in Britain, and hand-crafted using traditional coach building methods, comprising a composite body, on a tubular frame. Following in the footsteps of its Le Mans winning ancestors, the powerful 6.2L engine produces 450bhp, which, taking into account its light frame gives it exceptional agility.
The company will produce both left- and right-hand drive variants, and the Barchetta will be available with either an automatic or manual gearbox. Production will be limited to 24 cars per year, with a total production run of only 99 vehicles - and the waiting list is filling fast.
