Fornasari Gigi 311 GT comes from the Italian heritage of the beautiful GT of the 50s. Ideally links the Fornasari today’s production with Gigi Fornasari and his racing at the Mille Miglia in 1956. All aluminum made, combines a spectacular shape with astonishing modern performance. Two seater, coupé or convertible, with front-centra engine and transaxle drive train with limited slip differential. Lightweight and powerful it is designed for your personal enjoyment.
Customization is a must. No colour range is taken for reference. Both interior and exterior views are determined according to the clients’ taste. The most exclusive and even the most eccentric materials find their right place. Everything may be required and satisfied: Formula breaks, hand-hammered body in carbon or aluminum, and even 18” rims or the 23” dizzy ‘rings’, which can be combined with tires for either desert sands or high-speed circuits.
Interiors are in leather and aluminium, with details sometimes recalling the past (as for the ashtray inspired to the old fashioned deluxe cars) combined with advanced multimedia accessories. All that recalls of the genuine hand made cars. That’s why we can find hand hammered and satin aluminium, hand-sewn seams in the leather, pure woollen fitted carpet with leather borders, pedal controls and other parts of the console crafted with care as unique pieces. Instruments are rounded in shape and the metallic pointers are hand balanced, enriched by all those led lights so familiar to the collectors.
The car’s skeleton consists of a special steel piping chassis in molybdenum-chrome that means a real space-frame in a 5 users’ model adaptation. More than 450 pipelines go across in order to obtain stiffness and torsion capability with a weight of less than 150 kg. The suspension triangles are equal on the four sides and allow the perfect control of the geometrical work. The suspensions travel of 240 mm has been studied so as not to affect or change in any extent the geometrical configuration, as it had been set.
The heart consists of the latest generation of engines by General Motors’ as reviewed by Fornasari in the U.S. The result is a light but reliable complex all built in aluminium. Sparing of consumption, in compliance with law about gas emissions puts no limits to power exploitation, which comes to be underlined by great values of torque.
