The ultimate italian coachbuilder site

ARES releases renders of the S1 Project Spyder

Luxury Italian coachbuilder ARES has announced that it will be producing a limited edition run of 24 stunning S1 Project Spyder sports cars.

Based on the company’s recently launched S1 Project, the S1 Project Spyder’s clean top line is enriched by the absence of the car’s windscreen and roof. To assure the ultimate driving experience, the company’s Centro Stile designed two wind deflectors. Elegantlyemerging from the streamlined bodywork, the deflectors redirect the air current over the passengers into the air intakes behind the headrests; creating a virtual canopy and a calm yet unfiltered driving experience.

In the absence of the windscreen, the sinuous carbon fiber bodywork takes on a life of its own as it flows into the cockpit area, dividing and cocooning its passengers in the bespoke handcrafted interior. Richly finished with the highestgrade Napa leather and Alcantara interior details revealelegant lines with the HMI located on the central console and dashboard.

Like its sister car, the Spyder embodies all of ARES design language; created with extensive CFD studies to ensure ultimate aerodynamic performance, timeless driving experience and a captivating aesthetic.

Under the hand-crafted carbon fiber bodywork, the S1 Project Spyder houses a naturally aspirated V8 powerplant. With a maximum of 8,800rpm the car’s powerful acceleration will produce an anticipated 0-100kph in 2.7s. The rear wheel drive Spyder has an 8-speed dual clutch transmission, an ARES Design-tuned ECU and a bespoke crafted exhaust system giving the car a maximum power of 522kw (715hp).

Dany Bahar, ARES Co-Founder, commented: “We had always planned a Spyder version of the S1 Project and since we revealed that car last month the reaction has been fantastic, so we are very pleased to release details of the S1 Project Spyder. We wanted to create a model that is a true tribute to the pleasure of sport driving. This new Barchetta version adds more charm to the S1 Project design as it takes additional inspiration from the world of motorsport and the racing cars of the past”.

To celebrate more than two centuries of experience Morgan Motor Company will collaborate with Pininfarina on a vehicle to be unveiled in 2024.

A Morgan designed by Pininfarina

Morgan’s historic headquarters, is located in England, on Pickersleigh Road near Malvern Link in Worcestershire. This is the only place in the world where Morgans are built, all unique cars assembled by hand using ash wood, aluminum and leather. From the union of this craftsmanship with Pininfarina’s style we expect a lot.

For now there are no further details, as they will be announced in 2024 during Morgan’s 115th year, however, along with the release was released the cover image, a kind of “postcard” of what it will be, a glimpse of the past combined with modern design in very deep colors that evoke tradition and elegance.

Limited edition

Since each Morgan is handmade to order, it is safe to assume that this special Morgan by Pininfarina already has a collector waiting for it. We will know more in the coming months, in the meantime let’s read with attection what Massimo Fumarola, CEO of Morgan Motor Company, said:

“Bodywork is the very essence of creating a car, and it is something we have nurtured and protected at Morgan. We have found that working by hand and not through automation and letting the heart of the creator shape a line or object is what allows the spirit of our company to shine. For us, bodywork also has an ethical significance. Making something with our hands allows us to fully understand and appreciate raw materials and to respect the environment in which they are created. Bodywork is not constrained by trends and boundaries, as we are discovering through this collaboration. The shared passion between Morgan and Pininfarina is evident and we look forward to sharing much more with our community in due course.”
