A SHARK WITH FERRARI STYLE

-

This beauty is called the Squalo (shark in Italian) and if it looks a bit like a modernised classic Ferrari, that’s because, essentiall­y, it is.

The car is being built by Ferrari specialist GTO Engineerin­g and features an impressive sub-1,000kg kerb weight and a four-cam V12 engine.

The company hasn’t released details of how much power the engine will put out or how big its displaceme­nt is, but will do in the next month or so.

This mixture of 1960s style and simplicity with modern engineerin­g should result in a stunningly exciting driver’s car. And it must have required some careful footwork to step around Ferrari’s notoriousl­y pro-active legal team.
