The market for track-oriented street cars is rapidly expanding and now a new addition has been revealed in the form of the Phiaro P75 Concept Cypher. As the name suggests, the P75 Concept Cypher is a concept and was slyly introduced at the Geneva Motor Show 2015.
Some may instantly recognise the Phiaro name and it is understandable why. It is the name of a Japanese firm founded in 1939 that specialises in transport, industrial, automotive and motorcycle design. For the P75 Concept Cypher, they’ve decided to go it alone and release a car designed and built in-house.
Beneath the skin of the Phiaro P75 Concept Cypher is a small 1.5-litre engine delivering 142 hp. While that might not sound like much, the car only tips the scales at 596 kg and is very driver oriented with rear wheel drive and a five-speed manual transmission.
Stylistically speaking, the Phiaro P75 Concept Cypher features a truly outrageous design fitting on a track-focused sports car and a rival to the likes of the Ariel Atom, BAC Mono and KTM X-Bow. With that in mind, it doesn’t feature a windscreen and features exposed steel structural elements. Elsewhere it includes small butterfly doors and matte bronze five-spoke wheels. The rear-end is particularly eye-catching with exhaust tips placed above the taillights as well as an interesting rear wing and diffuser package.
It remains to be seen if the Phiaro P75 Concept Cypher will reach production.
