2006 Faralli & Mazzanti Antas V8

The Faralli & Mazzanti Antas V8 is due to be shown off at the Top Marques exhibit in Monte Carlo 20th - 23 rd April 2006.

Faralli & Mazzanti are a well respected Italian coach builder and classic car restorer. Their previous projects included the Maserati 450 Coupe Zagato ' the Monster', driven by Stirling Moss at the 1957 Le Mans 24 Hour race.

The Faralli & Mazzanti Antas V8 was influenced and inspired by past production processes and materials of luxury Italian cars from the 1930s to the 1960s. This golden era of Italian motoring produced some of the most collectable and revered designs to this day.

2006 Faralli & Mazzanti Antas V8The prototype Faralli & Mazzanti Antas V8 is based on a steel tube frame with a had made aluminium body on top. The build process is very different to the mass produced vehicles of 21st century. Instead the Faralli & Mazzanti Antas V8 has been lovingly hand built by a team of automotive experts who have followed the hand drawn plans. Nothing was created on computer.

Powering the Faralli & Mazzanti Antas V8 is a carburetor Maserati V8 providing old school grunt. Buyers of the Faralli & Mazzanti Antas V8 will each get a blue velvet case containing a silver plate bearing the identification numbers and a DVD and book documenting the build process of their very own car.

ANTAS V8 GT is the first 'Berlinetta' (touring car) created in the F & M workshop. It is completely inspired by the philosophy and material used in the 'special series' of the past: the body, for example, is made of aluminium and completely built by hand.

ANTAS is driven by a powerful V8 MASERATI engine fed by carburettors and endowed with a pleasing elasticity of power, which gives the 'driver' the sensation of 'true' steering typical of the great touring cars of the past. Because of this, when the time came to name this 'jewel,' a word was chosen that comes from the ancient Tuscan language of the ETRÚSCANS: ANTAS, which means EAGLE, the noblest and most audacious dominator of open spaces.

On delivery, ANTAS comes equipped with a case covered in blue velvet bearing the silver plate with the identification numbers; inside are a photography book and a DVD documenting the construction of the vehicle.
