You can count on one hand how many people will be able to buy this car


The question here pretty much sums it up:

Yep. Italdesign, known for beautiful car designs but not actually building the cars, is planning on building limited runs of its own designs. With body work made from carbon fiber, Italdesign will produce only five of these vehicles by the end of 2017, its website has confirmed.

Not that there may be a massive market for it anyway. The car is meant for collectors and car enthusiasts willing to plunk down at least $1.6 million -- and that's just the base price, before any special performance packages.



Italdesign -- which is owned by Volkswagen -- lists a bevy of specs so customers can see what they're getting for all that coin.

Developed around a modular chassis in carbon fibre and aluminium, this special car boasts a powerful naturally aspirated 5.2 litre V10 engine which enables 0-100 km/h acceleration in just 3.2 seconds, together with a top speed in excess of 330 km/h. The bodywork is entirely in carbon fibre. The car measures 4847 millimetres in length by 1970 millimetres in width by 1204 millimetres in height.

Italdesign promises that even though the car has racing car features, it will be approved to drive on normal  roads.


That, of course, is assuming someone wants to take such an expensive car on a Sunday drive.
