Each Aquila Italiana car is designed completely in house starting from the customer's wishes: in so doing, the client is placed back in the leading position in determining the objectives of the project. Each car is built entirely by hand by skilled craftsmen-artists, but validated according to the most advanced design techniques, responding fully to the requirements of safety and pollution in force today. Each of our cars, in fact, is approved for road use. Material to be used is strictly aluminum, for its qualities of lightness, scalability, and recyclability. And of course, because it is the noblest material that may exist for an Italian car of such class and value. Our designers sit down with the client, various options are discussed, desires, ideas and designs. From this first meeting several sketches are proposed to the client for final approval. From this moment everything is translated, engineered and validated in CAD systems.
Depending on the type of project (one-off or small series), we proceed with the creation of a "manichino" or a 1:1 scale model in 3D, to be subjected to the final assessment of the client. Validated this last step, we start the actual creation of the car. In the case of a one off, each aluminum panel is beaten until we find the final form replicating that of the "manichino". In the case of small series, the moulds are built in multi-layer solid wood from the CAD files. On these, aluminum panels will be hand-beaten. These molds allow a very small tolerance on each body part, an almost perfect finish and, above all, repeatability.
The only component that is not entirely designed by our team is the engine, which may be derived from different sources and then reworked by Aquila Italiana according to the specifications required by each customer. These are refined, modern and reliable 10 or 12 cylinders units, with power starting from 630hp. Today like in the past, Aquila Italiana offers its lucky customers an atelier where tailor-made cars are created, like a haute couture dress. Unique, handcrafted, powerful, safe, exclusive.
