Wami Lalique Spyder by Ares Design
Italian coachbuilder ARES and world-renowned French crystal maker Lalique have revealed first images of their stunning automotive design collaboration, a perfectly proportioned two seater roadster, the WAMI Lalique Spyder.
With a bold muscular silhouette, reminiscent of the halcyon days of the 1950s, the Spyder’s exterior is crafted from a blend of hand-shaped aluminium and carbon fibre. Its evocative styling cues include chromed exhausts, front and rear bumper with over-riders and wire wheels giving the vehicle the opulent nod to the past and a timeless appearance.
Inside, bespoke French crystal design meets handcrafted Italian upholstery creating a perfect blend of artisan skills and sumptuous luxury detailing. From the delicately decorated centre console to the doors the elegant interior boasts hand-made crystal embellishments, perfectly complemented by the finest English oak dashboard housing the classic white on back dials – reminiscent of the bygone era.
The car’s inspiration, derived from the finest two-seater roadsters, was painstakingly conceived by the Modenese design house’s Centro Stile team.
ARES Design’s CEO and Co-founder Dany Bahar said: “As work progresses, we can now begin to truly appreciate what a beautiful and unique car we are co-creating with our partner Lalique; it is unlike anything we have produced before. The WAMI Lalique Spyder will be a joy to own – the ultimate luxury accessory. Owners will be able to relive the romance of travel that is synonymous with the Côte D’Azur and the Amalfi Coast of the 1950s in a beautifully adorned masterpiece; the epitome of bejewelled excellence.”
