Italian automaker Ermini has released a teaser photo of the Seiottosei (Italian for 686) which will be revealed in full next month at the 84th Geneva Motor Show.

It was roughly fifty years ago when Ermini launched a new car but now they appear to be back in business with the Seiottosei powered by a Renault engine baptized with the extremely funny "F4RT RS" moniker. The 2.0-liter, four-cylinder motor delivers 315 bhp (235 kW) through a Sadev six-speed sequential gearbox which should enable the sportscar to achieve a 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) run in less than 3.5 seconds before hitting a limited top speed of 168 mph (270 km/h).

The two-seater brachetta is 4120mm long, 1850mm wide and has received this name as a reference to its 686 kg (1,512 lbs) curb weight. It benefits from a Renault front & rear "push road" suspension and comes with Brembo ventilated brake disc rotors. The Ermini 686 rides on 17-inch OZ alloy wheels wrapped around in Toyo R888 tires and its chassis consists of Trellis / steel tubing and carbon panels.

There's not a lot to tell in terms of design by looking at this teaser photo but back in 2012 a few renders (see attached photos) of the model appeared online and they showed a rather generic-looking sportscar.

Additional details can be found in the press release area.
