Mole Almas Wants To Be The New Italian Supercar Kid On The Block

This is the new Almas concept, an exotic supercar study by Mole Costruzione Artigianale, the company that created that beautiful coachbuilt Alfa Romeo 4C.

Mole Automobile’s Almas is the second joint project between Umberto Palermo Design and Paolo Scudieri, president of Italy’s Adler Group. Adler also happens to be Alfa Romeo’s supplier of the 4C carbon tub chassis.

The new design study will make its world premiere at the Geneva Motor Show, featuring a very striking carbon bodywork finished in red with a flat black roof over a carbon chassis created by Adler.

Measuring 4730mm long, 1980mm wide and 1218mm high, the new mid-engine Mole Almas was designed to adopt a powertrain that runs on hydrogen but the company plans to offer it with a classic petrol engine too, without revealing any further details. Mole Automobile will release more performance specs on a later date.

The rear end of the new Mole Almas is dominated by clean lines, a set of quad exhaust pipes and a diffuser while the aggressive front is dominated by three large air intakes and the company’s logo, which features the names of its creators. The sides are more dramatic, with strong lines giving a unique visual character to the Almas.

Mole Automobile promises that the Almas will come with a refined interior dressed in innovative materials and the latest telematics, offering comfort and style.

The company plans to throw the Almas into a limited production run, with details to follow.

    There’s a bit of Maserati Bora going on from the side profile. Unfortunately, the front and rear ends are a mess.

    Looks like they took it off the assembly line when it was only 75% done and just called it a day.

    that wheel / tyre ratio is terrible…. how old are they? 15?

  • This looks absolutely gorgeous! The way the bonnet ‘sits’ on top of the front wheel arches is an achingly beautiful bit of design. I really like what’s been experimented with as well as the end result – that rear has an awful lot of presence. The badge is the only thing I don’t like; there’s nothing really dark able about it other than the way it’s integrated into the front grill.

  • I LIKE THE PAINT. THE REAR IS VERY SIMILAR TO THE PIECH SHOWN EARLIER.

  • Bo Hanan

    I’m split on this. On the one hand bravo for the show cars looks! On the other hand God help you if you ever have to wash or service it.

  • holyworrier

    No.

    Some angles I love, some angles are just horrible. An nice design effort in need of further refinement.
