Gt65 is the name of the Italian supercar that takes its name from the racing number of the motorcycle champion Loris Capirossi, which inspired the three special hypercars produced by Frangivento Automobili, numbered for each of the three world championships won by the pilot from Romagna, i.e. 90, 91 and 98.
With the first tests behind closed doors at the Imola racetrack of version 90, tested by Loris Capirossi himself, the supercar made entirely in Italy and which required three years of development, has now officially arrived.
Powered by a 650 HP naturally aspirated V10, it shoots from 0 to 100 in 3"0 and from 0 to 200 in 9"8.
It has four-wheel drive, a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox and a top speed of 330 km/h.
Designed and engineered by Giorgio Pirolo, Paolo Mancini and Loris Capirossi, the Fv Frangivento Gt65 represents an evolution of the Sorpasso model both from a stylistic and mechanical point of view.
Compared to the Sorpasso, the Gt65 has cleaner surfaces especially in the side and an appearance characterized by a markedly aggressive look which underlines even more clearly the close stylistic link with the Asfanè hypercar and with clear aesthetic references to the GT3 Group racing cars .
"I met Giorgio Pirolo and Paolo Mancini - commented Loris Capirossi - in Monte Carlo while they were driving their spectacular black Asfanè. of the romantic enterprise they intended to create with the Fv Frangivento brand. In recent years I have thus witnessed the growth of this new creature, trying to offer creative inputs to Giorgio and Paolo who have been able to translate them into reality".
After the first tests at the Enzo and Dino Ferrari racetrack, the GT65 will be on show in these days in the Casa Sanremo lounge inside the Palafiori of the Ligurian city, on the occasion of the Sanremo Festival week.
