Despite its radical appearance the Fornasari Racing Buggy is in fact headed for production. Fornasari is an Italian company who create a number of distinctive vehicles - mainly based around large American V8 engines. The Racing Buggy is no exception.

Mounted up front is a GM-sourced 7.0 litre V8 which produces 600 horsepower @ 6,000 rpm and 748Nm of torque @ 5,100 rpm. This gives the vehicle a claimed top speed of 174 mph (280 km/h). The 0-60 mph run takes just 3.8 seconds. The Fornasari Racing Buggy is also equipped with a permanent 4WD system which sends 60% of the power to the rear wheels and 40% to the front wheels.

The chassis of the Fornasari Racing Buggy consists of a tubular steel spaceframe with over 450 segments for improved strength and torsional rigidity. The angular body work consists of aluminium and carbon fibre panels.

The interior of the Racing Buggy can accommodate four adults. Depending on the weather, the doors and roof can be removed to create an open air vehicle which lives up to the Buggy name.
