Covini is testing a new petrol-electric hybrid “speedster” version of the new 434 bhp V8 C3A. In testing, the track-only hybrid is apparently proving to be extremely fast with excellent braking and handling. The Tyrell P34 Formula One car, which is the only working six wheel car to have been produced prior to the Covini, won an F1 race before it was banned, so the logical benefits of four-front-wheels (reduced high speed lift and improved aerodynamics, more rubber, more braking power and more grip, particularly in treacherous conditions) are once again being validated.
