P75 Concept Cipher
The Phiaro P75 Concept Cipher is a prototype track car built by
the Japanese company Phiaro. It is a high-performance vehicle which
relies on its lightweight construction and agile dynamics - rather
than raw horsepower - to provide the thrills.
The vehicle was created to celebrate the 75th anniversary of Phiaro,
a company specializing in providing independent design services to
automotive and motorcycle manufacturers. The cars name, CIPHER, stands
for Cae Integrated PHiaro Engineered Racer.
Powering the Phiaro P75 Concept CIPHER is a mid-mounted 1.5 litre
four-cylinder engine which provides 142 horsepower @ 6,600 rpm. Power
is sent to the rear wheels via a 5-speed manual transmission.
It's not a lot of power by today's standards. But with the car only
weighing 1,310 lbs (596 kgs) it's easily enough to put a smile on
any track day enthusiast's face.
