New 500bhp beauty built by Monaco’s first car­maker

No, this isn’t

a spe­cial-edi­tion 458 Italia, it’s the Ras­casse by Monaco’s first car­maker, Mon­tecarlo Au­to­mo­bile and it’s here to cel­e­brate the brand’s 30th an­niver­sary.

Founded in 1983 and named af­ter the fa­mous Monte Carlo cir­cuit cor­ner, the mid-mounted 5.4-litre V12 500bhp su­per­car— that runs both on petrol and hy­dro­ge­nen­riched LPG— fea­tures a re­mov­able roof and lots of wood trim.

Set to be built in a limited run of 15 units, with each priced from around Dh1.9 mil­lion, Mon­tecarlo Au­to­mo­bile is also plan­ning a more pow­er­ful su­per­charged hy­brid model with a four-wheel drive sys­tem.
