Interesting Sbarro Evoluzione from Geneva 81st

Submitted by on December 8, 2011 – 2:16 AMNo Comment

Swiss automobile builder Sbarro, in league with the Espera Sbarro design school, has brought a very interesting concept to the Geneva Motor Show this year: the Evoluzione. The prototype seen here is an eye-popping mix of various themes: it takes Lamborghini’s recent efforts at making drivable razors, puts in aspoonful of motorcycle, and then adds McLaren F1-style seating.

Sbarro’s Evoluzione took thirteen weeks to complete with twenty-five students working in teams on both the engineering and design sides of the project. Pierre Guenebaut, a teacher at the design school, explains, “Being present at the Geneva Motor Show is a reward for them. They will have the opportunity to explain their project to the public while investing in relationships and communication.”

The delightfully naked rear end houses a 180 horsepower 1.8T sourced from Audi. In front of the engine are three staggered Recaros with the driver front and center, flanked by two “wingman” passenger seats.

Our thoughts? Interesting take on the Lamborghini form. It seems more fitting to be a Lamborghini concept rather than a standalone design from Sbarro. Great work from a group of students!

Several points:

Exhaust portion looks unique

Visible chassis adds dimension

Engine could be larger displacement perhaps even the 2.0T FSI from the newer Audis.

Front brakes need to be much larger – Brembo big brake upgrade

Wingman seating is great a la McLaren F1 but the interior could use more texture and material

Wonder how it drives!
