While it seems like a walk in the park for big manufacturers to develop a hypercar, it’s no surprise that smaller entities sometimes struggle to get their foot in the door. Without countless engineers and designers at their disposal, it becomes increasingly difficult to produce an impressive automobile. Defying all odds, automotive entrepreneur and petrolhead Paul Halstead has pushed aside the critics to produce a very exciting contender in the hypercar market.
For the uninitiated, Halstead is an Aussie who created his automotive capital in the computer industry. His first foray into the realm of vehicle design came with the fateful Giocattolo of the 1980s, the result of squeezing a V8 engine under the hood of a highly modified Alfa Romeo Sprint. After creating 15 examples and burning through $4 million, the project went bust.
