It was created by the Japanese company to celebrate its 75th anniversary and also to showcase its vast design and engineering capabilities. It is the first time Phiaro has produced a car under its own name as it usually serves as a supplier to major manufacturers. Cipher is short for Cae Integrated PHiaro Engineered Racer.

Using CAE or computer-aided engineering, Phiaro designed a bespoke tubular spaceframe chassis. Suspension is by double wishbones on all four corners. A compact, naturally aspirated four-cylinder engine is mounted transversally just ahead of the front axle. It produces around 140 bhp and is mated to a conventional, five-speed gearbox. The compact sports racer is clothed in a minimalistic composite body.

Thanks to the use of lightweight materials throughout, the P75 tips the scales at just 596 kg. Built primarily as a showcase of the company's capabilities, Phiaro, unfortunately, does not intend to produce any further examples. Following its Geneva show duties, the P75 will be further tested and developed to explore the design's limits.
