The FV Frangivento Sorpasso is today’s new supercar

By topgear, 08 April 2021

Listen up Internet, we have a brand-new supercar to tell you about. Yep, another one…

Anyway, please say a warm and not too sceptical welcome to the rather bonkers-looking FV Frangivento Sorpasso. Pretty rad isn’t it? Just check out that busy rear end – we might need a lie down.

FV Frangivento is based in Turin and its co-founder and art director Giorgio Pirolo says the Sorpasso was inspired by cars like the Ferrari Dino and the Lamborghini Miura. Hmmm. Don’t assume this is all talk and vapourware though; the first examples will apparently be delivered to their new owners in Monte Carlo and the United Arab Emirates by the end of July. Crikey. 

More detail, then. There’ll be two different versions of the Sorpasso – known as the Stradale and the GTXX. Both will get a V10 engine and all-wheel drive, but the Stradale (shown above) will be naturally aspirated with 610hp, whilst the GTXX will get GT3-inspired aero and a supercharger for 810hp. It’ll still be fully road-legal though.
