The first production vehicle from Picasso Automotive, based in Switzerland, was unveiled. The 660 LMS is a supercar featuring a carbon-fiber shell and a twin-turbo V6 engine that produces 650 horsepower and 720 Nm of torque.
The dry-sump engine is situated in the middle and sends power to the rear wheels via a Sadev six-speed sequential gearbox. SC-Project, a well-known motorcycle exhaust maker, created the titanium exhaust.
The Picasso 660 LMS is a highly fast automobile, not only because of its powerful engine but also because it is quite light, weighing only 960 kg.
Picasso Automotive could reach this weight thanks to the large use of carbon fiber. With noticeable fenders, a big splitter, intakes between the headlamps, gigantic inlets, a rear wing, and a large diffuser, the entire bodywork is constructed of carbon fiber.
At the front, 350 mm discs with six-piston monobloc aluminum Brembo calipers are used, while the back has 355 mm discs with four-piston calipers. Bosch also provides brake pads and an adjustable ABS system.
A matt carbon-fiber finish, an Alcantara-wrapped carbon-fiber steering wheel, a pair of Sabelt seats with six-point harnesses, a 7-inch infotainment touchscreen, plenty of physical controls, and two 7-inch digital rearview mirrors can all be found inside the cabin.
The 660 LMS is built on a lightweight monocoque chassis that was developed in-house and manufactured in Italy by NuTeCo.
The supercar is already on order, and production and deliveries are expected to begin in the second half of 2023.
Production is limited to 21 units while only 20 of them are for sale with a pricing of $878,744 and the first model will remain for the automaker.
