His passion for cars led him to build his own brand together with his close friends and business partners. Wanting to prove what they were capable of together, the Kjara idea sparked. They started working on it in late 1997 with help from the Technical University of Rome. Just one year later, the vehicle was already looking ready. It only needed some finishing touches.
It was displayed for the public to see two years later at the Turin Motor Show, as the listing on Carandclassic says.
With a diesel 2.4-liter JTD Lancia heart and two electric motors, this Bizzarrini was way ahead of its time in terms of what a supercar with a knack for efficiency could look like – a fact also proven by its shape. This vehicle was very aerodynamically advanced, and it shows. Just look at it!
Unfortunately, the motors have been disconnected. However, the diesel engine still works!
Kjara’s interior is not very well put together since this car was only meant as a show piece. The company never intended on making it a production model, not even for a limited run.
The car is listed for sale by the Gallery Brummen, which is Europe’s biggest classic car dealer with headquarters in the Netherlands. Being a one-off concept with Italian heritage, expect some hefty sums to be floated around.
