Ares Design S1 Project Spyder

Ares Design joins a current trend and thinks about a radically open supercar. The S1 Project Spyder is aimed at a similar group of buyers as the Ferrari SP1 Monza and SP2 Monza or the McLaren Elva. However, it will remain much rarer, since the Italian small-series brand announces a limited production run of only 24 units. At the moment, only computer renderings exist. Instead of a roof and a windshield only two air deflectors in front of the cockpit are planned. Inside, the passengers sit on leather and Alcantara.

The Spyder is based on the S Project Coupé, which was presented by Ares in September. This in turn uses the chassis and drive technology of the new Chevrolet Corvette C8 Stingray. So a 6.2-liter V8 engine lurks behind the two passengers. Ares grants it a few modifications that shift the red line by 2,500 to 9,000 rpm and at the same time increase the power to 526 kW/705 hp and 969 newtonmeters of torque.
