The Impact, whose development follows in the footsteps of the ESP9 and its derivatives, is a vehicle resolutely geared towards track use.

The Impact is part of the Espera Montbéliard program, based on the 2007 ESP9 (Espera photo).

Racing car

The Impact is a two-seater barquette combining lightness (weighing just 590 kg) and sportiness. The engine, from PSA, is a 1.6-liter four-cylinder developing 150 horsepower. The chassis is of course dual-frame, and the bodywork is made of fiberglass, Franco Sbarro's preferred material.

The Impact was used on the Dijon Prenois circuit

And today?

But the Impact goes further than previous concepts derived from the ESP9. The Dijon-Prenois circuit is associated with its construction, and the Impact has evolved regularly on this circuit.
In the summer of 2011, the prototype was purchased by Francis Bouillet, a former student of the school who worked on the Impact and founder of the Kustom & Racer Design workshop. He then sold it to another student from the 2008-2009 graduating class. The Impact was supposed to continue rolling in Dijon, but I don't know what's happening with it today. It would be a shame for it to end up in a museum: that's not what it was designed for.

In brief
