For this purpose, designers are developing a project whereby the wheelbase will be increased to 500 as 30 centimeters. The width will be significantly higher. The engine and gearbox will be mounted at the rear of the car, the front will have additional ballasts.

4.5-liter eight-cylinder V-type engine will be deforsirat but its power will still be great for such a colossal body – 550 hp At this stage it is only a stage sketches, but Lazzarini Design people are determined to bring things to an end.
