The ATS Sport is a two-seat road car with a track focus, and costs from €33,000 without an engine while a race-ready version costs from €48,850 (about £39,671). It can be powered by a choice of an Extreme Engines Hayabusa units or a turbocharged 1.6-litre GM powerplant, offering around 252bhp. A top-spec version can hit 62mph in 2.5 seconds with a top speed in excess of 155mph. The car has a dry weight of 470kg, and comes with a six-speed sequential transmission.
Optional extras on the car include a full carbon fibre body, a racing-spec fuel tank, Xenon headlights, a data logging kit, paddle shifters, forged wheels, larger brakes and performance dampers.
The other of the firm's planned road cars, the Leggera, will weigh 650kg dry and be powered by a 1.6-litre turbo GM engine with 210-300bhp. Prices will range from £45,000 to £60,000. Both cars will use a stainless steel frame with an epoxy resin body.
