Video blogger Supercar Blondie has published in a new video the first images of the assembly process of the very first copy of the new supercar Ares Design. The Italian brand’s novelty is based on the Chevrolet Corvette, and the first unit will go to the girl’s garage.

Ares Design has unveiled its new mid-engined supercar, the Ares S1 or S Project, which will be available as an S1 coupe and a Spider convertible, whose performance is on par with the best in the segment. However, until now the company has only allowed some attractive renders of the model to be seen and has not publicly demonstrated a single real sample.

The video shows us the first copy of the model, although not finished, as it is still in the process of being assembled at the Ares factory in Modena. This is an example in a coupe body, which is just intended for the garage of the author of the video, since the video blogger became the first client of this Ares Design project.

The new Ares S1 is similar to the rest of the models presented by this Italian design house earlier, as it is truly a redesigned model. While it may not seem like it, underneath this sports car is the frame and mechanics of the new Chevrolet Corvette C8, which has been modified to take on an aesthetic inspired by the sporty models of the fifties, with a body styled around soft curves.

Beneath the new carbon fiber panels we find the aluminum chassis of the new Chevrolet Corvette C8 and its naturally aspirated 6.2-liter V8 powerplant, although after visiting the Ares workshops this unit has increased its output to 705bhp. The drivetrain remains the same Tremec dual-clutch automatic from the original US model.

Ares Design’s intentions are to produce an exclusive limited edition model that will include two body styles that we’ve only seen in a few eye-catching images so far, even though they were simple renders or scale models. In the video, we can discover many details of the new S Project, such as its chassis or its final interior, as Supercar Blondie has already configured it for itself.
