Dallara’s 493HP Ultralight Track Car Can Pull Up To 2.7Gs Through Turns

Over the years, Dallara Automobili has helped to develop no shortage of high-performance rides, with everyone from Alfa Romeo and Bugatti to Ferrari and Porsche contracting the Italian automaker for its highly renowned engineering services. Oh, and Dallara also happens to be a pretty prominent player in motorsport, building cars for Haas F1 and any number of different chassis designs for IndyCar.

All that is to say: the firm’s latest open-topped track toy comes backed by some remarkable racing pedigree. And it shows. Dubbed the ‘EXP,’ it’s powered by the same turbocharged 2.3L inline-four as used in the Ford Focus RS, tuned in this application to produce some 493hp and 516lb-ft of torque. What’s more, it’s specced standard with a six-speed sequential gearbox, enabling lightning-fast shifts and some serious lap-slaying hilarity. And despite weighing a scant 1,962lbs, the EXP comes fitted with highly aerodynamic bodywork and a massive rear wing, allowing it to produce 2,755lbs of downforce at 180mph and pull 2.7G through turns. Put another way, it could nearly drive upside down. While there’s no word on pricing as of yet, Dallara offers everything needed to turn its Stradale into an EXP.
