In late 2012, small Italian sports car manufacturer Ermini revealed its 686 Seiottosei Roadster. This car is set to revive the brand. Prior to it, the Ermini name was last used on a sportscar back in the 1950′s, however, it seems that somebody bought the rights to the name and started work on a worthy successor. Now, Ermini has released the follow teaser image of a car it is bringing to this year’s Geneva Motor Show.
Possibly a production version of the Ermini 686 Seiottosei Roadster, the nose looks identical to the car we saw rendered just over one year ago. This means it features a rounded front grille with a massive central ‘E’ logo. Additionally, it features a red paint scheme like the concept did.
Powering the production version of the Ermini 686 Seiottosei Roadster is expected to be a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine courtesy of Renault. This powertrain delivers around 315 hp. All up, the car tips the scales at a measly 686 kg and Ermini estimates it will sprint to 100 km/h in just 3.5 seconds before reaching an electronically limited top speed of 270 km/h!
It will sit on wheels courtesy of OZ Racing as well as extremely sticky Toyo R888 tyres measuring 215/4 17 at the front and 245/40 17 at the rear. Brakes will be sourced from Brembo with self-ventilating rotors.
Expect to hear more as the Geneva Motor Show 2014 fast approaches.
