Sbarro SB1 Tornado, 2004


 

Franco Sbarro built this roadster on the base of a Ferrari 550 Maranello.

The rear surprised by the succession of round elements, including 4 lights, the logo and large chrome exhaust. The front recalls 60's Testarosa, with its nose and wing forward. Same for the panoramic windshield to look retro. The interior, luxurious, white leather, contrast with the style of the body very far from unanimous.

 

Presented at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2004, this car will serve as a basis for Sbarro's students to develop the Tornado SB2 in 2005.
