Ares S1 Coupe Gullwing
ARES S1 Coupè The creative spark for the S1 Project Coupè was simple but not trivial: to create a car that possessed an extreme design and exceptional performance, centred around an authentic and unfiltered driving experience. Inspired by the design philosophy of the most iconic racing prototypes of the 1970s and 1980s, S1 Project Coupè was born: the vision of the hypercar by ARES Modena.
With a short, sharp front-end, pronounced wheel arches, forward sitting cockpit and a wraparound windscreen, the S1 Coupè was developed to recreate the sensations reminiscent of race cars of yesteryear The ARES’ Centro Stile has designed an aggressive but flowing stance while producing maximum downforce and minimum aerodynamic resistance. Its sleek composition and performance are enhanced by its dynamic rear spoiler and the eye-catching exhaust exiting the bonnet – an iconic-styled feature specifically created to optimise aerodynamics and leave the rear extractor area free and clean. Careful stylistic and aerodynamic research has led to a perfect integration of functional and aesthetic elements to create a timelessly shaped car that will not lose its appeal over the years.
Inside the S1 Coupè, the interior reveals the use of essential but minimal lines creating a 3D effect enveloping both driver and passenger with the car’s HMI contained within the central console and dashboard. ARES’ expert artisans painstakingly care about styling and materials, finishing the forward sitting cockpit using the finest Alcantara and Napa leather and using carbon fibre panels, creating a stunning yet functional ambience designed to emphasise the driving pleasure and sensations experienced behind the wheel of the S1 Coupè.
A powerful engine, a responsive chassis, a cutting-edge gearbox: are the critical elements for a direct and immersive driving experience. Beneath the carbon fibre bodywork, S1 Coupè houses a naturally aspirated V8 engine with direct injection. The power is transmitted to the rear wheels via an 8-speed dual-clutch gearbox. At the same time, the handling is assured by its double-wishbone suspensions, forged aluminium axles and adaptive Magnetic Ride Control. Dynamic performance has been improved by carefully studying the car’s aerodynamic aspects using CFD technology. One of the S1 Project Coupè’s most impressive elements is undoubtedly its bespoke exhaust system, with the outlets positioned on the bonnet: a feature that not only dramatically improves the performance of the V8 engine but also gives the car a unique and distinctive sound, offering an even more immersive and thrilling dynamic experience.
