The best car manufacturers at the time (Maserati, Ferrari, Alfa Romeo, Mercedes) used to race side by side with small handcrafted makes such as Osca, Ermini, Stanguellini, Cisitalia, which were often able to be victorious.

These small car constructors, which were unable to compete with the most renowned teams due to economic/organizational reasons, had to make use of two essential characteristics: agility and lightness.

Pasquino Ermini used to say: "I have always thought of my cars as being as light as a feather, able to fly away, arm in arm with the wind."

In order to breathe fresh life into the legendary Italian "Barchettas", Ermini unveils a world preview of its new prototype Seiottosei at the Geneva Motor Show.

The Seiottosei concentrates the characteristics of lightness and agility of the "Barchettas", reaching high levels of exasperation.

The constructive philosophy of the entire car is a combination between technology, which comes directly from the racing world, and the finest craft-making techniques.

The refined electric welded space frame, absolutely of racing nature (integrated with the engine and gearbox, with a single integral structure equipped with a precious, and unusual, front carbon nose-box), weighs less than 70 kg!!

In order to create it, Ermini has worked very closely with Osella for more than three years, summing up the best racing experiences in over forty years on circuits around the world ...

Push-road suspensions are treated with PVD (exclusive and complicated aerospace-derived molecular bombardment process, certainly not so frequently used on a road car).

As a result, the Seiottosei weighs less than seven hundred kilos and thanks to its 320 HP engine its power-to-weight ratio is just above 2 kg/hp!
