Ares reveals 2022 S1 Spyder
Italian car maker Ares has unveiled renderings of a barchetta version of its recently released S1 coupe supercar. Making do entirely without a windscreen or roof, it has two simple wind deflectors instead. The carbonfibre bodywork is altered to ‘flow’ into the cockpit area, cocooning its leather-and-Alcantaraclad passengers.
The S1 Spyder is powered by a 715hp naturally aspirated V8, giving a 0-62mph time of 2.7 seconds. The rear-wheel drive car has an eight-speed dual clutch transmission and a bespoke exhaust. A limited run of 24 examples is planned, with order books open now.
