Taraschi Teases Berardo Supercar As Revival Of Italian Marque
Taraschi does not have the name of Italian racing teams like Ferrari or Alfa Romeo, but the historic name of motorsport is making a comeback. Following in the footsteps of company founder Berardo Taraschi, his son Tazio Taraschi will make his debut with the new sports car at the Automobile Museum in Turin on October 7.
Taraschi has only released one teaser image of the Berardo. The photo shows just enough to see the smooth, curved lines of the vehicle. At the front, there are prominent fenders above the hood. The arched daytime running lights further accentuate the rounded style of the vehicle.
In addition to the Berado teaser image, Taraschi has included images of his 1953 Giaur 750 Champion Sport. He provides a suggestion of what the company is trying to evoke with the new model. The tall, rounded wheel arches are an aspect shared between the classic vehicle and the revival to come.
Taraschi built racing cars in Teramo, Italy from 1947 to 1964. His first car used available parts, including the chassis of a Fiat Topolino and the engine of a BMW R75 motorcycle. He was able to lead this car to a victory in the Sport 750 class at the 1948 Targa Florio. He continued to build and sell racers from there, including success in the Formula Junior series which started in 1958. .
