Fornasari Gruppo B
From Fornasari press:
Considered to be the joining link between the SUV RR600 and the GT LM, the GRUPPO B is characterized by the new V8 LS2 by Chevrolet, modified according to our specifications, foreseeing as the leading model a 7.0 litre version with 600hp and an supercharged version of more than 700hp. The mechanical engineering is such as to optimize sports ability/utility with lightening bolt acceleration but in all security due to the AWD. Street tires, short wheelbase, less height from the ground, lower weight, and a shorter gear ratio as compared to the RR600, make this car an authentic missile.
No existing vehicle in the world combines so efficiently such exciting performance with comfortable and safe daily use on all types of terrain, while keeping exclusivity and reasonable pricing.
Researched and developed to be the street version of the legendary Gr B prototypes that defined Rally history in the 80's by enhancing some of the characteristics that made them famous (AWD Turbo with fantastic power to weight ratios), it's a 2+2 vehicle with ample trunk space that allows normal use without leaving anything out.
It's destined for enthusiasts of modern and fast driving who do not want to be subjected to the limits imposed by the GT's, but who want to use their thoroughbreds on all occasions.
The inside has a decisively sporty design rendered comfortable and spacious through studies that raise the comfort level on board . Personalization is always encouraged, this being a feature that distinguishes Fornasari. The use of fine and luxurious materials is studied and chosen directly with the client.
The line distinguishes itself from the RR600 by underlining the aggressiveness of the car, with forceful spoilers and large wings. Although the sizing is different in all details, familiarity still remains: the four front lights and the back lights are still protagonists.
The Chassis remains light and is extraordinarily versatile thanks to the chromomolibden tubular frame.
Brembo brakes assure first place stop times. Tires mounted on 20" wheel rims offer anthological driving precision.
Proflex or Ohlins shock absorbers with independent oil tanks, along with the anti-roll bars, guarantees the road handling and rapid feedback required from such a super car.
The carbon fibre and Kevlar body ensures resistance and trust worthiness to wear and tear over time.
Weighing 1,500kg dry weight , the car is made with different levels of engine power: 500, 600, or 700HP. Upon request, higher engine powers can be placed.
The transmission is AWD with viscose coupling 38/62 front/ rear, with the rear limited slip differential and a six speed manual gear box.
