FAB 12C Terso Spyder
FAB DESIGN presents the TERSO ROSSO Spider – a Swiss life-style convertible with British motorsport genes
A production-series McLaren MP4-12C Spider is already one of the most impressive con-vertibles one can encounter on city streets; however, next to the TERSO Spider it looks like its poorer cousin. The Swiss high-class manufacturer FAB Design proves again its so-phistication when it comes to fine-tuning a super sports car. One year after presenting the Coupé, FAB now delivers the convertible variant of the McLaren MP4-12C. Starting with the spectacular lift-reducing chassis design, over the moderate power in-crease, to the elaborate interior design, FAB Design applies all its know-how to this classy two-seater and makes the dreams of its exclusive clientèle come true.
The complete aerodynamic redesign by the Swiss specialist comprises wider front and rear wings as well as new side skirts. Enlarged air intakes in the front spoiler bring the visual effects of the TERSO Spider's front view to a full circle. This emphasises the overall impression of the car and supplies the radiator with additional fresh air. In order to give the TERSO the final touch, the engineers of the tuning specialist came up with an unusual visual idea: FAB mounted a powerful diffuser underneath the new rear spoiler. Together with the large rear wing, it increases the car's power output. At the front axle, the newly de-signed front spoiler ensures the necessary surface contact pressure is available. The 20-inch rims, EVOLUTION, in connection with Dunlop tyres in sizes 275/25ZR20 in front and 325/30ZR20 in the rear ensure the optimum contact to the road surface. The design of the ultra-light, three-piece forged wheels combines sportiness with elegance and perfectly fills out the wheel houses. With this type of package and the right sound coming from the three tailpipes of the FAB sport exhaust system, which, by the way, adds 15 HP to the engine's output, makes driving on winding country roads absolutely pleasurable.
TERSO pilots expect a slick, elaborately refined interior, which is nothing short of the exterior. For all interior applications, only the finest materials are being used for the roadster. The FAB upholsterers use selected leathers for the covering of the ergonomically designed sports steering wheel and the new sport seats. The aluminium pedal system sparkles in the footwell of the cockpit and supplements perfectly the visual carbon components of the interior setting. Precisely hand-crafted embroidered FAB logs in the foot mats and the head rests provide an additional visual focus. Thus, FAB achieved a style that provides the perfect symbiosis between motorsport panache and lifestyle.
