CEO Claudio Domenicali gushed about the project in this invitation:
All the bikes we produce are a declaration of our desire for perfection. But nothing is comparable with the Project 1708 is a true statement of intent, it is thew monument in which we draw a line between trying and doing. Iy is out most pioneering creature.
As we can see from the top image plus this leaked photo (above), it will feature a lot of lightweight carbon-fibre bike.
So the bike will weigh just 152kg which is 20kg less than the V4R, hence the term superleggera (super light).
The Superleggera’s Desmosedici Stradale R V4 engine is a big jump up from the “standard” V4 with (155kW/208hp, 124Nm) and V4S/R (top of page) with 159kW (214hp).
However, it is expected to have a super cost as well at $US100,000 (about $A145,000).
