Despite the organisational problems and the presence of the Delta variant that has made travel to and from Great Britain difficult, leading many big brands to be present only with national representatives, Kimera Automobili has kept its promise. It has confirmed that the Evo37 made its international debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, staged 8-11 July.
For a small factory like Kimera Automobili, keeping its promise was a great achievement. The teamwork saw all obstacles overcome, even the delays in the supply of auto components that are affecting the automotive in general, in order to complete the fine-tuning of the first prototype.
The result of this hard work was the shakedown of the first experimental vehicle. The new luxury prototype will appear at the famous Goodwood Hill Climb, the small circuit that sees the amazing parade of both modern and classic cars.
The Kimera Evo37 is very much a part of this elite group. It is an ‘authentic evolution’ inspired by the Restomod philosophy, taking the concept to the limit. It drags its origins from the past to revive an icon of world motoring and delivering the maximum possible performance development.
At Goodwood Festival of Speed will be the founder of Kimera Automobili, Luca Betti, Intercontinental Champion and Vice-European Rally Champion, to drive the Evo37. He will be sharing time at the wheel with Miki Biasion, World Rally Champion in 1988-1989, today tester/Ambassador for Kimera Automobili.
As Kimera Automobili took its Evo37 first prototype to Goodwood, the car is in a special ‘no paint’ livery, with provisional interiors provided with racing seats and harness.
The car’s final configuration will feature a sports cabin in full carbon, Alcantara, leather or alternative prestigious material. The model will be unveiled before the first delivery to the final client in September.
Also on display at Goodwood is the first red example of the Evo37. This car was first seen when Kimera Automobili presented the Evo37 project.
Just forty-five days on from Its media launch, around 20 of the 37 limited series units, have been requested by and assigned to clients from across the world.
The KimeraEvo37 is a supercar with a maximum power of 500 hp that produces 550 Nm of torque from its 2-litre engine. The unit features four in-line cylinders with turbocharger plus volumetric compressor, designed from scratch under the guidance of Claudio Lombardi, who designed all the engines for the legendary Martini Racing team cars.
The entire project was conceived of with respect for the past, involving the team who worked on the models that inspired the Evo37. However, it was the younger Alessandro Bonetto and Carlo Cavagnero, together with Luca Betti and his staff, who have made the Evo 37 a reality.
