ARES Modena supports LuisaViaRoma for UNICEF Gala Dinner.

December 2021

• ARES to provide a trio of outstanding hand-built vehicles for UNICEF auction

• Special Edition S1 Biposto featuring aeronautically-inspired canopies

• ARES for Land Rover Defender Spec 1.5 Cabriolet complete with an ARES Scrambler Motorbike

Luxury coachbuilder ARES Modena today announced that it would be supporting the LuisaViaRoma for UNICEF Gala in St Barth on Wednesday 29th December.

In support of the charity gala dinner, the Modenese atelier is giving organisers three handcrafted vehicles for its auction. Guests will be able to bid for a special edition S1 Biposto supercar, which has been expressly designed for the occasion, a Land Rover Defender Spec 1.5 Cabriolet and a matching ARES Scrambler motorbike.

A sure-fire hit with connoisseurs of beauty, speed and the open road, the supercar will feature a unique and audacious design; the driver and passenger are shielded by individual canopies which descend to seat level, allowing each to share the lower cockpit area while the car’s intercom ensures conversation.

Like its sister model, the S1 Biposto shares all the features and engineering of the S1 Project, which houses a naturally aspirated V8 engine with direct injection with the power transmitted to the rear wheels via an 8-speed dual-clutch gearbox.

For guests wishing to go off-road, they will have the opportunity to bid for the ultimate toy, an ARES Defender Spec 1.5 and its ARES Scrambler motorbike. Billed as the ultimate toys for grown-up boys, the bespoke pairing allows drivers and riders to continue the quest for the thrill off-road experiences with the open-top Land Rover Defender and the unique Scrambler motorbike.

The evening will feature a special performance by Dua Lipa and will include a cocktail reception, an exclusive dinner, a live auction of art and bespoke items and experiences.

Funds raised during the event will support UNICEF’s work in providing care and protection to vulnerable children across the globe. Despite the global challenges brought on by the pandemic, UNICEF continues to fight daily for the rights of children in need — providing safe shelter, nutrition and protection from conflicts, natural disasters and inequality.

Commenting on ARES support of the event, CEO and Co-Founder Dany Bahar said, “We are wholly delighted to support such an important charity as UNICEF. The work that it undertakes around the world protecting children is critical, and we thank the organisers for letting us be part of this fabulous event.”

Luisa Panconesi, President of the Event Committee for St. Barth Gala for UNICEF 2021, said: “Following four years of collaborating with UNICEF Italy, I am honoured to inaugurate the first LUISAVIAROMA for UNICEF winter gala on the gorgeous island of St. Barth. Our commitments, perseverance and efforts have shown that we can achieve amazing results even in such difficult times. We have been collaborating for four years now, united by the same desire and goal: to support children in need around the world. I feel very lucky to be part of this ambitious project to support children worldwide and would like to thank everyone who has supported us with this super event this year.
