    The FV Frangivento Sorpasso supercar has been revealed by the Italian carmaker. It follows the company’s Asfane hypercar of 2019.

    • The supercar will be available in two versions – Stradale and GTXX
    • The Stradale gets a 610hp, V10 engine with an AWD layout
    • The GTXX will come with 810hp supercharged V10 engine
    • The supercar will weigh just 1,300kg

    FV Frangivento Sorpasso: engine and performance

    The Sorpasso is available in two forms – Stradale and GTXX. Both are powered by a 610hp V10 engine and offer four-wheel drive, but the latter adds a supercharger that brings power up to 810hp.

    Constructed from carbon-fibre and weighing 1,300kg, the GTXX can hit 0-100kph in 2.9sec and 0-200kph in 9.3sec, en route to a top speed of 344kph.

    FV Frangivento Sorpasso: design and features

    The Stradale is finished in Hermes Grey paint, while the GTXX adopts a two-tone finish. The GTXX has yet to be revealed, and FV Frangivento says that it will have "a more aggressive look" with more sophisticated aerodynamics and a large rear wing.

    The interior has also been kept under wraps for now, but the company says it will have a sporty, minimalist design and be finished with leather and Alcantara.

    It also claims that the Sorpasso will be the first car to be fitted with an Avatar Driving Assistant. The company calls this "an intelligent co-driver" that can respond to voice commands.

    FV Frangivento also offers two design programmes – Sviluppo and Ego – in which customers work directly with stylists to create their own bespoke cars over the course of 30 days. If they so choose, buyers can replace the XX in GTXX with their own number to make the car entirely unique.

    According to Giorgio Pirolo, FV Frangivento’s co-founder and art director, the carmaker has taken inspiration from other Italian cars that made automotive history, such as the Ferrari Dino or the Lamborghini Miura.

    FV Frangivento Sorpasso: production timeframe and delivery

    Paolo Mancini, the co-founder and technical and commercial manager, has stated that the experience gained with the Asfane allows the carmaker to now produce the car within just 150 days from order confirmation.

    Prices for the Sorpasso have not been disclosed, but order books are now open. The first examples will be delivered to customers in Monaco and the UAE in July.
