Ares S1 Biposto for UNICEF
Italian coachbuilder ARES Modena has built three unique vehicles that were sold at auction to benefit UNICEF. Alongside a modified Land Rover Defender and a Scrambler motorbike, the carrozzeria also offered a special edition S1 Biposto supercar created especially for the charity’s December 2021 gala dinner. Funds raised by the auction support UNICEF’s work protecting vulnerable children across the globe.
The supercar features uniquely designed individual canopies for the driver and passenger. These stretch down to waist level, leaving a shared lower cockpit area. An intercom enables conversation between the two passengers. Like the previously seen standard S1 model, the S1 Biposto features a naturally aspirated 715hp V8 engine, eight-speed dual-clutch gearbox, rear-wheel drive and a 0-62mph time of 2.7 seconds. The body is made of carbonfibre, while the suspension features double wishbones and forged aluminium axles with adaptive ride control.
