    Default Ascari KZ1

    Did anyone see the KZ1 on Top Gear tonight?

    My sister used to be the Financial Controller for them, and as soon as I saw it come on, I phoned her straight away. Top Gear have been asking Ascari for ages to let them drive the car, but the owner of Ascari has stated he would rather see hell freeze over first than let that Clarkson anywhere near it. My sister had been trying to come up with an agreement that suited Top Gear and Ascari, but always failed.

    Well, it looks like they have finally let Top Gear have a blast in it, but did you notice that Clarkson never commented on it at all, and was never in the same shot. I reckon that Ascari would of come up with a contract that Clarkson wasn't allowed near it, if they allowed it to appear.

    How about that then??????

    I bet Clarkson doesn't get the flipping message though, he's that arrogant!!

    Stunning (super) car. Looks abit like a lotus on steroids. Saw something awhile ago on it, and there is a place where you can go for a holiday with a purpose built track and a bunch load of Ascari's. Its run by the owner of Ascari for Ascari owners.
    P.S that Aston sounded gorgeous

    Yes, but it's not cheap, and it's aimed at Corporate Events - http://www.ascari.net/home.php?idioma=2

    Agree about the sound of Aston, awesome!

    My sister told my once that the owner of Ascari flew into the factory (in his helicopter) and took one of the KZ1's for a drive. He didn't ask any of the guys working there which one was driveable. The car subsequently caught fire on the M40; Claus just left it and phoned the factory to get it recovered -


    KZ1 heading North on the M40 at a fair rate of knots -


    The KZ1's predicessor (Ascari Ecosse) -
