Covini C36

C36 Turbotronic (1998), a Supercoupé able to shatter the 300 Km/h barrier (188 mph).

This is a very refined GT as far as the aerodynamic bodywork is concerned and also due to the materials used for the structures (composites). The great uniqueness of this prototype, presented at the Turin International Motor Show in 1998, is that it is one of the fastest diesel cars, due to its powerful engine (Turbo Diesel common rail produced by VM MOTORI), capable of 300CV.
