The Ascari A10

The Ascari A10 is the third road car produced by the company, with the name A10 intended to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the company. The Ascari A10 sports car, developed by British manufacturers and similar to the Spanish GT version, is rated in the top ten super cars for 2006. Its lightweight carbon fiber body of less than 3,000 pounds is designed more for the racetrack than the road.

Like its KZ1 predecessor, the 1280 kg A10 will be rare, with just 50 to be hand-built at Banbury. Although expensive, it promises incredible speed and power. The power of the Ascari A10 comes from the modified BMW 5.0 liter V-8 engine, with the standard six-speed sequential transaxle, where the gearshifts operate as paddles, similar to other race cars. It has the same steel sub-frame for the power train and rear suspension as the KZ1 sports car, but the height of the coil spring units can be adjusted hydraulically on front and rear.

Despite is race breeding, the Ascari A10 is intended to be a 'useable' car or on the road. The exterior design of this luxury race car is more dramatic than its predecessor the KZ1, with wider headlamps, a different grille, and higher wheel arches to accommodate larger rear tires. In addition, it features a splitter in the front, fixed rear wing, and five detachable body panels for added race trace utility. The A10 is certainly a rare and distinctive car, one that is much desired to own.
