Planning and construction was undertaken with the same philosophy of attention to the best traditions. The first drafts, in fact, were done on paper: Faralli first developed it in 1:1 scale, then traced the final lines, always rigorously drawn. Nothing was developed by computer; everything came from the heart, from the imagination and the capable hands of experts. From there, it went to the constructive part, and not even here were involved machines managed by computers.

First, in fact a "dummy" was constructed of iron tubes bent and modelled by hand, then it was "built" on the aluminium frame, with the same methodology of the great body makers of the past: the light-weight alloy mags took form thanks to the precise hammer blows of the artisan, who little by little transformed a cold element of metal into a wrapped form or into a decorative element of body.

The technical basis of this prototype derives directly from Italian grand touring cars of the 1960's. The frame a steel box adequately reinforced and modified, on which was mounted the model of tubes and sheet metal structure supported on the hand-moulded aluminium frame welded individually to the various components. Preparation and sanding are done by the expert hands of artisans who prepare the body for painting, for which the best products of the recent generation are used.
