Between the fifties and sixties in Italy, motoring experienced a great ferment, with many small artisan companies in which mechanical wisdom and aesthetic taste often used in art.
Among them a small manufacturer from Teramo emerged, Berardo Taraschi, who gave life to a series of sports and competition cars that still today know how to stand out for their style and assert themselves for their performance in historic races.
The Squadra Corse Taraschi, which still exists today to provide advice, spare parts and assistance to collectors who own the highly prized cars made by the forefather Berardo, now sees in Tazio, the son of the driver-builder, an heir seriously willing to see reborn, in key modern, the glorious brand.
Combining the charm and tradition of the history of the Italian car with the most modern technology was the goal of 1-Off based on BMW i8, with the aim of creating a mix of absolute value which is the basis and spirit of this new project.
It's powered by a hybrid engine, with 1.5 thermal engine plus a electric engine that offers a max power from 420 CV, upgradable to 470 CV or 520 CV
Inside, too, the reference to the past is deliberately strong with inserts and details in wood that derive from another strong Italian tradition, that of luthier, which alternate with top quality leather goods that supply the most renowned high fashion brands made in Italy. Thanks to these choices, perhaps contrary to current standards, the rebirth of the Taraschi brand is set in a context of absolute exclusivity and originality.
