Not to be outdone by Lamborghini’s efforts at this year’s Geneva Motor Show, the Espera Sbarro design school has unveiled this aggressive looking piece at the show in Switzerland. It’s called the Sbarro Evoluzione.
It took the 25 students involved in the project 13 weeks to create this design concept, inspired more by the architecture of a motorbike than an automobile. Working under four teachers, the students were split into two groups, one which worked on the drivetrain and chassis while the other was tasked with creating the overall design and styling.
It features a Lamborghini Sesto Elemento style body, only it appears to have been hacked at by a large machete. The front end is ‘conventional’ in its design and features a sharp pointy nose typically seen on other hypercars. The rear, however, is where Sbarro goes nuts. There is no rear. Exposing the entire rear suspension set-up and the engine, the Sbarro Evoluzione is sure to set itself apart from the rest of the timid and tame hypercars out there.
The cabin features a centrally mounted seat for the driver with two rear passenger seats – three Recaro bucket seats in all. The Evoluzione rides on 20-inch wheels and is powered by a 1.8-litre turbocharged 4-cylinder with 132 kW, supplied by Audi.
The Sbarro Evoluzione is only a concept car at this stage, with no production plans announced.
