Dallara’s first road-going sports car to be called Stradale

Dallara’s first road-going sports car to be called Stradale

Dallara Automobili, Italian chassis manufacturer, is preparing its first ever road-going sports car. The car was spotted testing a few months back, and now it is trademarked with the Stradale moniker, which has been filed for use across the European market. A logo has also been submitted for trademarking. 

Famous for its motorsport involvement, Dallara is commemorating the 80th anniversary of its founder, Gian Paolo Dallara, with his last car. The name Stradale, which means ‘street’ in Italian, is the fitting name for the company’s first ever road going sportscar. The Stradale is benchmarking the KTM X-Bow and the Alfa Romeo 4C, both cars which Dallara helped to develop. As can be seen the spy shots, the Stradale will be a ‘form-follows-function’ design with its low-slung, track ready body style.

The Italian chassis manufacturer asserts that it has learnt a lot of lessons from the development of the KTM apart from learning from their own racing involvement for the development of the Stradale. Their first street-legal sports car will be anything but ordinary. The styling of the road car is exactly what you’d expect from a manufacturer who has been involved in making racecars since 1972. 

Power is expected to be extracted from a 2.3-litre four-cylinder turbocharged engine. The Ecoboost engine with an output of 400bhp sourced from Ford is the most probable engine option at the moment. The extensive weight saving measures with carbon fibre monocoque is aimed to keep the weight down to 800kg, lesser than the X-Bow.

The company plans to produce 600 units only at the rate of 10 per month over the next five-years. Dallara will build this road-going car in a new factory just adjacent to their racing development centre in Indiana, USA.
