For friends and competitors known as Black Mamba, especially for its nice coat of carbon fiber. After the successful 2011 season with FS.03, we knew we were close. Instead of designing a brand new car, we’ve decided to focus on the weak spots and optimize them. As a result, the car is lighter, with better driving characteristics and better drive dynamics.

In particular, the frame was modified, the engine moved closer to the driver, reducing weight and also reducing losses in the power chain. The changes also touched the front of the frame, which has been redesigned to make better use of the material and thus further reduce weight. Airbox system is totaly new, it has been designed with a view to optimal airflow inside it.

Similarly, using computer modeling of fluids, exhaust ducts were designed. Both the airbox and the exhaust have helped to achieve better torque, which is therefore higher and available from lower revolutions. At first glance, you can see a new body that has been significantly lightened by the use of advanced carbon fiber technology.

The raw beauty of the bodywork made us so fascinated that we chose not to keep it under the paint.
