December 9, 2005 Hitting the international sportscar scene with impact is Ascari, creators of the stunning KZ1 supercar, and the world’s first purpose-built auto racing resort and now comes the news it is working on a second supercar –a GPB350,000, 600bhp, 1280kg, 220mph, six-piece carbon fibre road-going version of Ascari’s Spanish GT Race Car dubbed the A10.

Currently undergoing rigorous testing in advance of its Summer 2006 release, the A10 is the next generation Ascari dream drive. Engineers at Banbury and at the exclusive RaceResortAscari racetrack, are committed to ensuring this 220mph supercar delivers a knockout blow to the competition. And just like its highly desired KZ1 cousin, the 1280kg A10 will be just as elusive, with just 50 to be hand-built at Banbury, and even more exclusive with a price tag of around £350,000.

Power will come from a 600bhp 5-litre V8 engine, with a six speed manual as standard and a sequential gearbox available as an option. With a six-piece carbon fibre body, fixed rear wing and distinctive headlight configuration, the A10 is destined to be a head-turner.

Chris Burton from Ascari says: "We are extremely excited by the prospect of launching the A10. This car’s roots are in the racetrack making it a truly inspiring driving machine, yet refined enough by design to be driven every day as a supercar."

To pre-register your interest in the A10 please call Chris Burton on 01295 254800, or email c.burton@ascari.co.uk
