This incredible car is a unique beast from the days of Italian supercar domination.
Italian Supercars are some of the most sought-after vehicles within the automotive industry for their incredible power output, tight handling, and emphasis on all things performance. Practicality is a luxury that these cars can afford to lose with their ridiculous price tags and beautifully crafted exterior and interior coupe design. While many vehicles can give you a lot of power, or luxury, or a sleek design, the supercar seeks to combine all of these aspects. It should go without saying that Italy is most often the frontline for producing these great cars. This car is a perfect example of that distinct focus on power and design that the nation is known for.
This new canyon carver from 1988 was the first Cizeta-Moroder V16T ever to be produced as it sports the incredible chassis number 001. Sitting between the front and rear axles is the glorious 6.0-liter V16 which puts out a raw 560 horsepower and 398 ft/lbs of torque. This crazy powerhouse is more than enough to ensure that you’ll always have fun behind the wheel of this dominating beast. That power is transferred directly through a five-speed manual transmission, making driving the car one hell of an experience.
As it was the original prototype of the final production vehicle, this pillar of power is the only one that has Cizeta-Moroder badges throughout the exterior which means that it is instantly recognizable as a piece of Italian automotive history. Furthermore, due to many features and small details on the finished product, this car may very well be a one-of-a-kind supercar from a time when Italian performance was on the rise. This violent vehicle was so fantastic that it was featured at the Geneva and Los Angeles Auto Shows as a way of strutting its stuff on an international stage.
