Sbarro Espera Gecko, 2009


The Gecko is a small recreational vehicle, inspired by buggies. No doors, no roof, minimal equipment, the Gecko is only for fun. It is powered by a V-6 cylinder from PSA that develops 210 horses. The weight is limited to 880 kg, so performance should be very interesting (no data is available).

The Gecko uses the famous chassis Dual-Frame created by Franco Sbarro. The body is fiberglass.

For the anecdote, the gecko is a lizard that can climb anywhere and walk backwards through the suction cups on its legs. Such a name is a good omen for handling of the car. (The gecko is also the Wiesman logo in Germany, but there was no connection with and Sbarro Espera).

Bouillet Francis, a former Espera student and founder of Kustom & Racer Design, purchased the Gecko in the summer of 2011 and intends to continue its development.
