It’s been in the works for over 30 years, finally the infamous 6-wheeled supercar by Covini Engineering is heading towards production!Â It seems thatÂ Ferruccio Coviniâ€™sÂ C6W has finally made peace with the engineering and cost problems plaguingÂ his prototypes built over the years, andÂ this uniqueÂ supercar’sÂ future certainly looks bright.
After nearly a decade of serious testing, it’s been said that this rear wheel drived exotic will be powered by a 4.2 liter Audi engine boasting 433 horsepower and and 346 lbs of torque through a 6-speed manual transmission. This is enough power for an expected top speed of over 185 MPH. Take a look at this beast at the test track:
So why six wheels? Well, according to Covini the C6W will have better grip, better braking, better comfort, better absorbtion of a frontal impact, better chance of stability during hydroplaning. In summary, we’ll just say it’s “more better.”
