A moving showcase of news ideas, Novanta returns to a classic Bertone
theme - that of an executive saloon. Novanta relies on drive-by-wire

new technology has had a major influence during the design and
architectural development of Novanta.
YAK is the alternative answer to a more unique style based on new

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.
