Ascari KZ1 Coming To Dublin In September

The Ascari KZ1, one of the rarest supercars on the planet, will be in Dublin this September 16th to attend the Motorshow Ireland 2005. With the first orders for the 200mph supercar now being taken, the unveiling event at the RDS, offers show goers the opportunity to experience the hand built Ascari first hand.

In a car weighing only 1,330kg, the mighty 500bhp V8 fires the KZ1 to 60mph in an eye watering 3.7 seconds, with 100mph dispatched a mere 4.6 seconds later. As production on the carbon fibre supercar is limited to 50, the KZ1 delivers a perfect package of heart stopping performance, opulent luxury and guaranteed exclusivity.

Nick Orton, Pioneer Shows Limited and Motorshow organiser said. " The Ascari is a truly unique marque and we are thrilled to have the KZ1 coming to visit the show. This is a stunning car and the fact that we will have the opportunity to view the only one in existence is very exciting and a privilege. For everyone lucky enough to visit the RDS in mid September they will be treated to something that car enthusiasts all over the world can only dream of - seeing this car in the flesh".

Whispers also suggest that the KZ1 will be joined by its race-prepped sibling. The Academy car is a stripped out race prepared alternative that leaves little doubt about the sporting intentions of the Ascari brand. With previous success in the World FIA Sports Car Championship, the Academy car offers show goers a glimpse of the past and future success of Ascari’s racing ambitions.

Taking place between the 16th and 18th of September, the Irish Motor show spans all the indoor halls of the RDS and features many outdoor events ranging from the interactive Sand Buggy & rally experience to the thrills of the 4x4 assault course. As well as supercars such as the Ascari, there will also be a host of mainstream manufacturers unveiling their new models and demonstrating their current product range. Anyone with a penchant for modified and kit cars will also be well catered for as some of Irelands finest motoring tailors will be there to showcase recent efforts.
