2001 Qvale Mangusta

The elements of design

2001 Qvale Mangusta
A time-honoured configuration - a front-engined, rear-wheel-drive Italian GT sports car. A car that, close up, wears the jewellery of its inheritance: the straked air ducts, the four-fold exhaust pipes, the signature rear wheel arch of Marcello Gandini. But one that, from a few paces back, strikes the onlooker as utterly contemporary: a low nose and a kicked-up tail, a fleeting shape formed by the air itself.2001 Qvale Mangusta
The luxury of choice
To the choice of exterior colours and interior trims, we add three options of body style. In one car, courtesy of Rototop. With Rototop fully erected, the Mangusta is a perfect weatherproof coupe. Remove the light centre section (it stores in the trunk) and the car becomes a breezy targa. Lower the rear section by pressing a switch and you have the full-blown cabrio effect. Other cars require you to make this choice in the showroom. With Mangusta, you can decide as you drive.

Made to Measure
Strength and rigidity are the core of the Mangusta's reinterpretation of the front-engined, rear-drive layout. Strength comes from a galvanized box-steel chassis tub, the work of a former F1 designer - Enrique Scalabroni. Its outstanding stiffness allows precise set-up for the all-independent wishbone suspension and hence better handling responses. Beauty is added with a high-tech composite skin made with the 'resin transfer moulding' (RTM) process - light, durable, immune to corrosion and able to shrug off minor impacts.

Inner Beauty
Functionality looks and feels right. The Mangusta's dashboard is a tight group of six essential instruments sitting directly ahead. At the man/machine interface - the gear knob, a door handle, an air-conditioning control - the Mangusta feels as good as it looks. Seats, pedals and wheel are arranged to explode the myth that high performance spells ergonomic compromise. High-grade Italian leather gives the required whiff of quality.

A Well-Protected Asset
A global approach to component supply gives the hand-built, small volume Mangusta the safety features of a mass-produced family car. Excellent dynamics and predictable handling are the best safety features, principles around which the Mangusta was conceived. Anti-lock brakes and traction control play an active role in keeping enthusiasm in check. If it comes to the crunch, twin airbags are triggered.
