Covini C6W Stupid car

Filed Under (More Dollars) by claude on 14-12-2008

C6W is an Italian 2-seat, 2-door sports coupĂ© with a removable roof section. Inspiration for the car was taken from the 1976 Tyrrell P34, which had two pairs of smaller front wheels, a principle applied to the C6W. The project was started in 1974 but abandoned shortly after, and left dormant into the 1980s due to the lack of availability of low-profile tires at the time. In 2003 the project was revived and in 2004 the C6W was shown in prototype form. In 2005 a slightly revised version debuted at the Salon International de l’Auto, featuring new wheels, new roof structure and a refreshed interior, and went into limited production of 6-8 cars per year, as a result of a tie-up between PMI and Covini Engineering.

Ferruccio Covini described the advantages of having four front wheels in such a car as:

  • less risk of front tires deflating
  • less risk of aquaplaning
  • better braking
  • better grip
  • better comfort
  • better absorption of frontal impact
