Arese RH95, the first mid-engined Superleggera Touring

Cars News

A story made up of masterpieces on four wheels that have contributed to giving prestige to Made in Italy motoring: the Touring Superleggera bodywork pedigree is beyond dispute. Now, to celebrate 95 years of activity, the well-known Milanese atelier is removing the veils from the Arese RH95, a mid-engined sports supercar that starts from an excellent technical base, that of the Ferrari 488 GTB, and the “dress” of a strong body charisma, entirely made with carbon fiber.

The Touring Arese RH95, which will be produced in 18 highly customized units, is also the first Touring Superleggera car to be designed starting from a mid-engine chassis architecture. Note, then, the valuable “butterfly” opening system of the doors, the same that help to shape part of the semi-transparent roof. At the rear, on the other hand, there is a direct air intake to the intake system of the V8 engine made in Maranello.

It is also from there, from Emilia, that the interior layout derives, albeit modified by Touring Superleggera to give life to what appear to be two distinct living cells – one for the driver and the other for the passenger – almost entirely separate. by a bulkhead that departs from the central tunnel and ends up being incorporated into the horizontal portion of the dashboard.

Behind the cockpit is the 3.9-liter twin-turbo V8 engine, capable of delivering 710 hp of maximum power and 770 Nm of torque, combined with a 7-speed automatic transmission. The performances are at the height of the charm: 0-100 per hour covered in 3 seconds flat and a top speed of 340 km / h. Numbers combined with high-level aerodynamics, as evidenced by the diffuser that visually integrates the quadrangular-shaped exhausts.
