Bertone Novanta

A moving showcase of news ideas, Novanta returns to a classic Bertone theme - that of an executive saloon. Novanta relies on drive-by-wire technology from SKF, for the control of all major driving systems. This new technology has had a major influence during the design and architectural development of Novanta.

Fioravanti YAK

Fioravanti YAK

YAK is the alternative answer to a more unique style based on new concepts designed for a powerful V8 and an all-wheel drive.

The structure itself is based on a cross ring element, a sort of central roll-bar, which is very important for safety in off road vehicles. This solution presents a particular characteristic which allows to integrate a new product patented by Fioravanti: the side window wipers.

The 575 M Maranello: the new Ferrari GT

The letter "M" stands for "Modified," underlining the fact that every area of the model's performance has been worked on. The most obvious change is the introduction of an F1 type gear change; the first time this has been used on a road going 12 cylinder Ferrari. In terms of styling, it was decided to retain the balance and sober looks of the 550, which invested it with the status of an instant classic, fitting in perfectly with Ferraris return to a front-engined high performance car.

Lancia Phedra
Lancia Phedra

The Lancia Phedra will slot in at the top of the MPV segment in Europe: its natural home will be the higher band that services a select circle of connoisseurs who are interested in travel, luxury and comfort. In the European market, this niche has settled at about 2.5% of total sales (some 350,000 vehicles in 2001).

Alfa 156 GTA 

The engine on the Alfa 156 GTA and Alfa Sportwagon GTA is derived from the classic 3-litre V6 24-valve unit that powers the top-of-the-range versions of the Alfa 166 and Gtv: a vigorous, but above all 'round' engine. For the 156 GTA, the technicians modified the crankshaft and pistons to raise capacity to 3.2 litres, lengthening stroke to 78 millimetres. Which says plenty about the type of performance they wanted to achieve. If their goal had only been to increase power, this could have been achieved by modifying the timing gear, fuel system and electronics.
