Offered for sale is the Creative Workshop Sport Speciale which is inspired by cars such as the Ferrari TR59/60, Aston Martin DBR1, Maserati 450S (and others) and produce a car that would seamlessly fit into the paddock of 1959.published in over 70 publications world wide including the cover of Auto week, Robb Report and Auto Week.
Under the hood there is a F1 inspired, specially built, performance BMW V12 engine mated by a 6-speed transmission. The engine delivers 450 hp and a peak torque of 480 lb-ft. It makes the 0 to 60 mph sprint in 3.6 seconds (estimated).
Road handling is taken care of by Brembo and Wilwood racing disc brakes, tubular, adjustable suspension arms, BRT rack steering, race-bred sway bars and many other technological advancements.
Generations of car aficionados have been inspired by the staggeringly beautiful lines of classic Aston Martin, Ferrari and Maserati sports cars like the DBR1, the TR59/60 and the 450S. Creative Workshops understands this love affair with sheetmetal and has created a modern classic that marries bits of all these and a few more.
At first glance, the Sport Speciale seems some forgotten relic, a true vintage racer lost to the vagaries of time. But upon closer inspection, you'll find - despite the convincing curves - this is no 1960s vehicle. A Formula 1-inspired 450hp BMW V12 sits in front of a six-speed transmission, breathing through a full dozen individual injectors and throttle bodies. The car's ECU is completely programmable to adjust fuel maps for both acceleration and deceleration. Cutting-edge traction control ensures all that power is translated to forward motion, while quick ratio steering, fully adjustable coil-over shocks and fully adjustable front sway bar make corners even more exciting than the straights. And despite front-midship engine layout, weight distribution is an excellent 45 percent front, 55 percent rear, which should mean balance tends to very neutral to slight oversteer - perfect for fast laps and great fun.
All four corners get Brembo and Wilwood racing brakes for repeatable performance. A fully baffled fuel cell-type hand-built gas tank holds 20 gallons for cross-country touring or laps at the track. Vintage-era 'carrozzeria' style building techniques conform to the 1950s motif, while the 'superleggera' construction puts an emphasis on lightness and gives the Sport speciale an authentic race-car feel.
Inside, full heat-shielding gives the driver and passenger some comfort not typically found in the racers of old. Fully adjustable seats accommodate everyone from 5'2" to 6'3" tall, hugging the body with their Italian glove leather trim. Painted in Ferrari Rossa Barchetta, OEM code 320, the Sport Speciale seems to leave no detail untouched in its quest for the perfect marriage of past and present.
