Old Italian Brand ‘Ermini’ Getting Revived By the End of 2013
Ermini is an old Italian car brand, and when we say old, we mean really old, as in they made their last car over half-a-century ago. However, that’ all about to change, as the brand is being revived with a very interesting new model, currently called the 686. It will be a light , green-minded sports car, with typical Italian styling, a mid-mounted engine and all-wheel drive.
The all-carbon fiber body will hid a tubular space frame chassis, which will get racing brakes and shocks, as well as huge racing brakes. Handling the design are Giulio Campellini and Design Team Ermini, and if the 3D models in the pictures represent a near-final model, then its Ferrari 333 SP routes, as well as other influences are clear (and welcome).
The car is set to arrive onto the scene by the end of 2013, with a yet-unspecified engine. Hopefully it will be small and turbocharged, in order to keep the weight as low as possible, while offering lots of power and torque, which in a car as light as this promises to be a very tantalizing prospect
I want this baby so bad...She's light, mid-engined, and 4x4...mmm...
I wanna take her to a (private) slippery road and do donuts for like 15 minutes...
