If you've ever wondered what would have happened if Fiat bought GM instead of Chrysler, the SV Motor Company has your answer with the new SV 9 Competizione.

Designed to mix American performance with Italian style, the SV 9 Competizione features a unique carbon fiber body which borrows more than a few lines from Alfa Romeo's sexy 8C Competizione. Despite the emphasis on style, the company created useful airflow properties which channel air through the hood and rear ducts to increase brake and engine cooling.

SVMC also went to work under the hood, where they added a revised air intake and a custom-tuned ANSA exhaust which is modeled after the Ferrari Daytona and 599 GTB. These modest tweaks create an additional 14hp, which allows the SV 9 Competizione to be rated at 450 hp and 445 lb-ft of torque. The company estimates this will enable the SV 9 to rocket from 0-60 mph in 4.0 seconds and run the quarter-mile in 12 seconds flat. Other modifications include a specially tuned sports suspension, an enhanced braking system, and Pirelli P-Zero Rosso ultra performance tires.

Like a proper Italian exotic, the SV 9 features a luxurious interior with carbon fiber reinforced seats, Italian leather upholstery, and a choice of burlwood or carbon fiber trim.

Production will be limited to 1,000 units and prices start at $99,995.
