Covini *Six Wheeled* Coupe

The C6W was first shown in 2004 and a revised version was shown at the Geneva Motor Show a year later with new wheels, interior and roof structure. Numerous prototypes have been developed and tested and now ItaliaSpeed is reporting the Covini C6W will be produced in limited numbers starting at the end of 2009. Power for this RWD 6-wheeled beast will be a 4.2-liter Audi mill channeling 433bhp (440PS) and 346lb-ft (470Nm) through a 6-speed manual gearbox. Top speed is expected to be 185 MPH.

Re: Covini *Six Wheeled* Coupe

why the two extra wheels? It makes no sense to me to be perfectly honest.

Re: Covini *Six Wheeled* Coupe

It was based off a race car. Tyrell P34. Though from the article I read the benefits don't really translate all that well.

Less risk of front tires deflating
Less risk of aquaplaning
Better braking
Better grip
Better comfort
Better absorption of frontal impact

Turning traction...

Look at Top Gear's top speed board, the fastest cars have a lot of power, but more importantly have low weight (high power to weight ratio). By adding a second set of wheels, you won't have as much understeer and can counteract a higher weight
