ATS 300 Leggera - new compact roadster from Italy previewed

ATS (Automobili Turismo e Sport) was originally founded in 1963 by former Ferrari employees who managed to launch a road car and also an F1 car. The company soon went under the radar and last year the marque was revived.

ATS how now unveiled details on their next model called 300 Leggera, taking inspiration from typical Italian small sports cars of fifties and sixties.

The front-engine, two seater rear-wheel drive 300 Leggera weighs just 650kg and power comes from 200bhp 1.6-litre turbocharged petrol engine.

200bhp is not a whole lot, but with a car weighing just 650kg it should be a fun combo!

Prices start from 30.000 euros (£25k) and first cars will be ready in 2014 for European and American markets.
