1996 Mega Monté Carlo

The French Aixam Group began in 1983 with the purpose of constructing motorized vehicles that could be driven without a license. With time, their business changed into the production of micro-vehicles and later, the sports car market. The sports cars were created under the Mega name, with their first offering appearing in 1992. The Mega Track was powered by a twelve-cylinder Mercedes engine that produced nearly 400 horsepower which was sent to all wheels. The vehicle was not only mechanically and technically advanced; it was created for a wide variety of scenarios. The ride hide could be adjusted to offer a sport clearance of just eight inches, or rise to thirteen inches to provide more ground clearance over rougher terrain. In total, only five examples were created.

The supercar market was very competitive and intense during the 1990's. The Mega Corporation purchased the Monte-Carlo Automobile Ltd in 1996 signaling their entrance into the super car market. Their goal was to create a car that could be driven on the road and in the grueling 24 Hours of Le Mans.

With the help of Sera CD, a prototype was created in time for the 1996 Geneva Motor Show where it was unveiled to the public. The design was created with the help of computer generation. The body and chassis was constructed of lightweight and exotic material such as carbon fiber.

Within two years a production version had been completed.
