A barchetta speedster as a racecar!? This car is inspired by the top can-am spyder style LMP1 racecars of its era — all giant wings and scoops galore. A simple rollbar and twin plexiglass cowls instead of a windshield means this is a helmets-on affair at speed. The pure definition of street speedster cool!
This flowing and curvy design style was the anti-wedge. Counter-programming versus the sharp Countach and Esprit look, perhaps. Curvy panel surfaces like these would take decades to go mainstream.
