The new car named Picasso PS-01 is from Switzerland. It is not really normal, since we don’t get many Swiss cars around the market. Picasso comes with an Italian V6 engine, thanks to a person who wants to revive Swiss cars. The person is Stefao Picasso, the founder of Picasso Automotive.
According to the company itself, it is the ‘craziest carbon fiber car ever’. Here are the photos of the prototypes that are being developed in Lugano, Switzerland.
The whole 3.2-meter (10.5-feet) long body is made of carbon fiber. That is the reason Picasso is known as the longest car ever made with the lightweight material. The rare subframe is completely made of carbon fiber as well, while the pieces benefit from engineering inspiration from LMP2 endurance cars. That is why the super car weighs only 900 kg (1,984 pounds). It is definitely one the lightest cars ever.
As the pictures shown, the Picasso PS-01 is a compact coupe and the engine is mid-mounted. The first prototype will be ready in the upcoming spring, as it completes the primary tests.
The Picasso PS-01 is the result of co-operation between many technical partners. The company has not revealed much information about the engine and main specifications, but we think it is equipped with a twin-turbo V6 of “the most famous Italian cars”. It is believed to produce 600 horsepower.
The model has the support of an international investor and some have even ordered a few. The model is the result of the Swiss precision and Italian imagination.
