Scalzetti, technically known as “Scalzetti Automobili SpA”, is an italian supercar manufacturer.
Founded originally in 1989, the company had gone bankrupt after releasing their first model, the Azzione, as the 1991 economical crisis didn’t allow people to buy supercars anymore.
This thread will mainly focus on their 2013 renewal, with the occasional digression to talk about the manufacturer’s history.
The goal of Giorgio Scalzetti, founder of the company, was to create the perfect car, combining sportiness and luxury, no matter the cost. Although he passed away before the company’s renewal, he’d be proud of the cars that wear the Scalzetti branding.
In a few words: low-production ultra-luxury hypercars for the richest.
Meet the new Scalzetti’s debut model, the 2016 Ultima.
Being a driver’s car, the Ultima is equipped with a NAV12 revving to 12.000Rpm. Not good enough? How about a 7 speed gated manual transmission?
Here’s a spec list for you:
- Carbon fiber panels on a Carbon monocoque
- 565hp/500nm 12k Rpm 4L 60Valve Alu NAV12
- RWD Gated manual transmission
- F/R Pushrod suspension w/ active suspension
- 373km/h top speed, 2.7s 0-100km/h.
All of this can be yours if you have 2.8M Euros to spend on a car. Oh, and you’d need to be part of the lucky 200 selected customers.

In a nutshell, the Ultima is the ultimate driver’s car. Naturally aspirated v12 screaming all the way to 12k rpm, a gated manual, RWD only, really light. All of this combined with the splendid looks and comfort Scalzetti knows how to craft.
