THE FORMULA FOR SPEED

You Call it Formula 1
We Call it a Testing Facility

Every day our Formula 1 engineers and technicians test cutting-edge technologies on the track, which help leads to better performance across our vehicle lineup.

THE CAR THAT COULD DRIVE UPSIDE DOWN

Aerodynamic Philosophy

The difference between designing a champion machine or a tailender is aerodynamics. The C38 was built with a different approach to aerodynamics. The C38 is equipped with advanced aerodynamic parts, which create heavy downforce as well as a refined airflow to help reduce drag. In fact, the C38 creates enough aero downforce that it could theoretically drive upside down.

3-D PRINTED CARBON FIBER

Carbon Fiber

Our engineers push the limits of Formula 1 innovation by using 3-D printers to produce all of our carbon fiber parts in-house. From front wings to brake ducts, suspension components to engine covers—breakthroughs in 3-D printing has streamlined our engineering process and kept production in-house, ensuring the Formula 1 engineers maintain total control.

MASTERS OF PHYSICS

Double Wishbone Suspension

Without ever needing to take their hands off the wheel, drivers can change gears almost instantaneously to keep the C38 within its power band.

AS MUCH G-FORCE AS A SPACE SHUTTLE LAUNCH

How do you create an unstoppable beauty on the track?
By building a beast from within.

SHORT ON COMFORT. PLENTY OF POWER.

C38 DRIVERS CHANGE GEARS 4,000 TIMES IN A SINGLE RACE

Gearbox

The C38 is equipped with an eight-speed quick-shift carbon gearbox which allows our team of Formula 1 drivers to shift up or down with the flip of a paddle. This seamless technology is also used on our Quadrifoglio line of vehicles—allowing drivers to keep both hands on the wheel and their pedal to the floor.

DRIVERS ENDURE COCKPIT TEMPERATURES UP TO 122° FAHRENHEIT

Cockpit

Seats? There’s one. Radio? Nope. Air conditioning? It’s called the wind. The truth is, you aren’t going to find any of the luxury features within our C38 that you’ve come to expect in our Quadrifoglio lineup. The cockpit of the C38 is all business and serves as the command center for all of its components.

GET STARTED

We’ve got some good news and some bad news. The bad news is although it would be nice to own a C38, it’s not for sale. The good news, however, is that many of the technologies developed for the C38 have been modified for use in our Quadrifoglio lineup.
