The length, width and height of the concept are 4981, 1966 and 1392 mm, the wheelbase is 2900, and the clearance is 119 mm.

 According to the company, for a small-scale production of the car will require a minimum of modifications, and production can be arranged as under its own brand Automobili Speciali, or under any other brand. Moreover, the concept was presented with a fully electric installation, but was also designed taking into account the possibility of using an internal combustion engine (installation of a 4.0-liter V8 turbo engine is assumed).

 Filippo Perini, head of Innovation Design, says: “We pay tribute to the genius of the multifaceted personality Leonardo, dedicating to him this car. We consider it the predecessor of modern engineers. Da Vinci’s eclectic approach to all aspects of creativity, whether painting, sculpture, architecture or design, inspired us in our daily work. ”
