Sbarro Espera Saetta, 2020


 

The Saetta Rossa (red lightning in Italian) was presented to the press at the end of February 2020. It was to be exhibited at the Geneva Motor Show, but it was canceled, following the coronavirus epidemic. The Saetta was created in 60 days by 24 students.

The Saetta is a tribute to the racing barchettas of the 70s. The car has very flattering lines, both soft and aggressive. A very nice pencil stroke.

The engine comes from a Maserati 3200 GT: it is therefore the V8 which develops 370 horsepower in the donor car. Thanks to the composite materials of the body, the weight is limited to 762 kg. The performances should be up to the line.

For the record, the n°40 on the car is a tribute to Franco Sbarro, who worked in his debut on the Ford GT40, of which he is surely one of the best specialists.
