Cars was originally established in Dorset, England in 1995.
In 2000 Ascari moved to new facilities in Banbury, to develop
the Ascari KZ1, and to house Team Ascaris racing assets.
Prior to the KZ1, Ascari had produced the Ascari
The Banbury factory were the KZ1 is produced is a modern state
of the art facility containing research and development, design
and production resources all under one roof.
Inspired by the achievements of Alberto Ascari, the first
double world champion in the history of Formula One, the Ascari
KZ1 gives unparalleled performance and driveability in one
of the world's most exclusive supercars.
The KZ1's carbon
structure gives lightness and strength to the sleek mid-engined
design, resulting in an aerodynamic drag coefficient (CD)
ratio of a mere 0.35.
The normally aspirated 5 litre V8, 32 valve engine gives an
effortless 500 brake horse power through a six speed manual
gearbox to the rear wheels.
Beautifully designed, hand-crafted and built to exceptional
standards, the exclusivity of the Ascari KZ1 is assured by
the creation of only 50 cars.
The Ascari KZ1's opulent sporting interior cossets the driver
in fully adjustable leather sports seats which give great
lateral support during high speed cornering. Uniquely designed
polished aluminium controls sit on a leather trimmed dashboard
with central 'Start' button emphasising Ascari's sporting
Luxurys such as climate controlled air conditioning help keep
the KZ1's generous interior space cool. Subtle back-lighting
of the fascia gauges and controls set a relaxed mood whilst
conveying all the vital information accurately at all times.
Electric windows and door mirrors, CD player and remote central

Interior colour schemes match the exterior paint options and
are entirely at the owners discretion, with all colour combinations
offered for the ultimate in creating a bespoke supercar.
