Italy’s Mole Is Readying A New Carbon Sports Car For Geneva

Italian design house Umberto Palermo Design and their brand, Mole Automobile, have dropped a selection of teaser images showing a new concept that will premiere at next month’s Geneva Motor Show.

The company offers a selection of upgrade packages for various production vehicles, including the Tesla Model S. However, based on the teasers released of its new model, we seem to be looking at a bespoke vehicle dubbed the Mole Contruzione Artigianale Almas.

Images of the new Mole Automobile depict a sleek two-seater painted in a bright shade of red. At the front, the car includes a large grille with a huge chrome emblem or logo in the center. On either side of the grille are small air intakes and just above them sit intriguing LED headlights. Spin around to the side of the sports car and there’s angular windows, large sports wheels, and thick B-pillars.

The rear of the new sports car incorporates a sleek engine cover, taillights somewhat similar in shape to those of the Lexus LC, quad tailpipes, and a prominent diffuser.

Few details about the vehicle are known other than what is shown in these teasers. However, a look around at various Italian publications indicates that the car’s chassis is made entirely from carbon fiber and that powering the concept is some form of hydrogen system.

A look at the hashtags used in the Facebook description for the vehicle includes one that says #oneoff, suggesting that the design house won’t put the vehicle into limited production, no matter how popular it may prove. There’s also a #tesla in there but we’re not reading too much into that.

All shall be revealed in the coming weeks. Stay tuned.

    I have a feeling it might be another 4C-based car.
