ARES
S1 PROJECT

The creative spark for the S1 Project was simple but not trivial: to create a car that possessed an extreme design and exceptional performance, centred around an authentic and unfiltered driving experience. Inspired by the design philosophy of the most iconic racing prototypes of the 1970s and 1980s, S1 Project was born: the vision of the hypercar by ARES Modena.

Enter the ARES S1 Project: the ultimate study in bespoke design and driving pleasure.

PERFORMANCE

A powerful engine, a responsive chassis, a cutting-edge gearbox: are the critical elements for a direct and immersive driving experience. Beneath the carbon fibre bodywork, S1 Project houses a naturally aspirated V8 engine with direct injection. The power is transmitted to the rear wheels via an 8-speed dual-clutch gearbox. At the same time, the handling is assured by its double-wishbone suspensions, forged aluminium axles and adaptive Magnetic Ride Control.

Dynamic performance has been improved by carefully studying the car’s aerodynamic aspects using CFD technology. One of the S1 Project's most impressive elements is undoubtedly its bespoke exhaust system, with the outlets positioned on the bonnet: a feature that not only dramatically improves the performance of the V8 engine but also gives the car a unique and distinctive sound, offering an even more immersive and thrilling dynamic experience.
