covinic6w-1

This week, we are still in Italy. I started checking out a couple of cars and I ran into this car and it left me speechless. Italians one of the best car manufacturers going back in the days! So when they decide to make a car with two sets of front wheels, don’t questions them. It is just a concept from Covini Engineering titled Covini C6W.

After constructing a few prototypes as a hobby, in 1978 Ferruccio Covini founded the Covini Engineering, a small company dedicated to the construction of static and automotive prototypes. Built from the passion for cars and engines, the artisan company has been active mainly with experimentation and innovation rather than big volume production. [Thanks Covini Engineering]

The car you see above is the first six-wheeled super car on the face of the earth. It has more than 400 horsepower, max torque at 470Nm at 2700 RPM, 8 Cylinder Engine in V formation, 4 valves per cylinder, petrol direct injection Bosch-motronic, rear wheel drive trans axle, and I believe the top speed is like 300km/h, and Covini guys say that it is “Simply Something Unique.” That is a nice quote, I should use that for our motto instead of Live Life Right!

I like the design, its not so super, but its not so regular either. The only part that I did not like was the inside. I personally think they could have done a little better with the design on the inside…it takes away the excitement as soon as you step inside! It feels like this is a car that would be grand to be seen in but not to ride in. Well, who cares what I say, its a simple opinion. As always, we can’t let you down, here is the slide show:

Oh, BTW, below, there is another exclusive coverage to this post and by the way(btw) make sure you catch next week’s coverage! We will unveil you a car that has to be the most stunning car we have shown you so far! The video below is a video by an Israeli from Auto.co.il on the car that I found on Vimeo (hopefully you understand what they are saying):

To the auther Covini Cars Article.
I happened to have made a descovery (inventions patents, 10 ,pplied for) and that changes how acar is built.

Graphics of most car makes have just been completed, and together with tec, description.

In theory and graphic aly quality cars are raised to a new dimension. convnetionally non competitive (potentially). One leaing car sales Co. here agrees. Likes concept invnetion, potential twice the car.

Added cost low can aply-adapt to all sizes makes, power means including electric.

I may have to publicise but first prefere to find Co. partner, and the very large ar eout of range.
Could you pass on to your conacts Auto Co.s. and or communicate, back to me . Yours sincerely, and thank you.
