FAB Design Terso Unites Design, Luxury and Sportiness

FAB Design has mounted another adjustable but fixed rear wing on the rear hood that can be mounted or removed with only a few hand movements.
FAB Design has mounted another adjustable but fixed rear wing on the rear hood that can be mounted or removed with only a few hand movements.

For over 20 years FAB Design has created individual small series runs and unique one-offs from exclusive base vehicles.

The basis for their latest project is the McLaren MP4-12C. The Swiss have taken it and and created a completely new car that only reminds one to a limited degree of the British super sports car. The front is marked by a front skirt with large air intake valves, which after the motto Form Follows Function supplies the cooling system with fresh air. The sides of the designer bumpers flow into the imposing forms of the wider wheel arches with the distinctively stylish air intake valves for the engine's central cooling system that frame the elegant FAB Design Evolution three-part forged wheels. The aerodynamically perfectly formed sills complete the sporty sidelines of the Terso (as this package is named) before they uninterruptedly end in the equally wider designed rear wings of this super sports car.

The transfer over to the newly designed rear is just as smooth. It not only has characteristic vent openings but also a diffuser that when it comes to combating lift at high speed supports the extendible rear wing. In addition FAB Design has mounted another adjustable but fixed rear wing on the rear hood that as required can be mounted or removed with only a few hand movements.

At the rear of the vehicle a FAB stainless steel sports exhaust mounted above the skirt with a 3-chamber carbon tail pipe lets the exhaust fumes sonorously free. The FAB developers are naturally also improving the performance and thereby currently achieving a regular performance of 680 hp - instead of the production line 612 hp that the V8 would otherwise send to the wheels. On top of this the engine's torque increases to a full 527 lb-ft (715 Nm).

All this power means that the Terso can sprint to 60 mph in just 3 seconds and reach a top speed of around 213 mph (343 km/h).
