Sbarro Espera GT4 is a sports car built in parallel with the
Monza coupé, sharing its technical characteristics. The two
models were built at the same time by two separate teams of
Espera Montbéliard students in the second quarter of 2009.
It's a classic theme for the
Espera school in Montbéliard: designing a sports car. Since
2007, there's been the ESP9, the Genesis, the Nemesis, the
Katana and the Mulsanne. This time, the engine is a
four-cylinder Suzuki from a Bandit, placed in a central rear
Note the Assystem name on
the car. This company had partnered with Franco Sbarro to
design the City Car two years earlier. I don't know what
their exact involvement is in the GT4. There's also the DP
logo of the Dijon Prenois circuit, which suggests that the
GT4 was perhaps being considered for this circuit.
The GT4 concept was purchased by one of the students
involved in its design, Francis Bouillet, founder of the
Kustom & Racer Design workshop.
