Ascari A10 is a development of the Ascari
KZ1 supercar and Ascari Spanish GP race car.
The road-going A10 is powered by a 600 bhp 5 litre V8 engine
running through either a 6 speed manual, or six speed sequential transmission. 100 bhp up on the KZ1. The Ascari A10 is also 50 kgs
lighter, using a similar carbon
structure to the KZ1 for
support and aesthetics.
The Ascari A10's body, although similar, is not identical. Perhaps
the most noticeable differences are the headlights, swapped
for three projector-style lamps rather than the KZ1's single
headlights (the lower driving lights are also missing). The
A10's front skirt is lower and has slightly wider apertures,
the rear air intakes have been altered to a more open style
with the removal of the slats, and the arches have been widened
with the addition of a small lip following the wheel opening
(side sills are also lower). The addition of a rather inconspicuous
fixed rear wing completes the racing effect.
Despite is race breeding, the Ascari A10 is intended to be a
'useable' car or on the road, and
like the KZ1, only 50 Ascari A10 supercars will be produced
at the company's facilities in Banbury, UK. Price is around
