The series reimagines iconic cars using modern design techniques and materials, not to mention performance, with the first model, aptly labeled the Project 1, crafted as an ode to the De Tomaso Panther, using a donor Lamborghini Huracan. The latest model is the Project 2, which Ares describes as a homage to Italian roadsters of the 1950s, and judging by the design the primary inspiration came from one of the legendary Maserati A6GCS/53...
