In 1960 the “Lipari” model is presented and its limited edition variant “volcano”
This is a cabrio belonging to the Fun Sport category, with a turn in the supercar for the “Vulcano”
Aesthetically, the line is based on the classic canons of the 55-56 era, recalling at times the Lancia Aurelia, Austin Healey, Triumph, AC. Not being particularly innovative, however, is appreciated for its clean and simple lines.
The Lipari is presented with a motorization of 2000 cc in-line 4-cylinder engine, with a horsepower of 147 horses , the engine even if small displacement looks like a little gem for the avant-garde details of the era as top end and bottom in Alluminum, 16 valves and was specially designed for the “Lipari”

0-100 in 10 second, nearest 1g at cornering.
and it was available in the following colors
-celeste, red italy, british green.

Concluding the “Lipari” is the ideal car to enjoy the streets along the sea with the wind in your hair, for long weekends or why not used every day.

The “Vulcano” version, produced in 336 specimens, is easily recognizable from view by the enlarged wheel arches and other small details.
Although remained unchanged in the components, the Engineers to accommodate the most powerful V8 engine of 3000 cc, already mounted on the GT “Maiella” also presented that year, had to widen the track, increase the diameter of the rims to accommodate a braking system more powerful.

The Engine in the same configuration of the Maiella of 229 horse power for 297 NM manages to Push the “Volcano” at a maximum speed of 222 km/h with an acceleration from 0-100 in 6,78 sec, managing to be faster than the excellent GT.
for the first time a symbol of the “Pegasus” appears on an Arpos car, identifying the most prestigious Arpos from that moment on.
The color available is only the Mica Navy Blue, which recalls the color of the sea with the black sands of the Aeolian island.

The “volcano” made the “Arpos Scuderia” appreciate even more in the American market, asking for a large-scale version of the construction company.
