Podium Advanced Technologies started deliveries of Automobili Amos Delta Futurista

28 February 2020

Pont Saint Martin, 28 February 2020 – The first of a limited edition of 20 Automobili Amos Delta Futurista was delivered today, boasting an iconic custom Martini livery.

It took almost a year to complete the testing and validation work that Podium Advanced Technologies carried out on the first prototype of the Automobili Amos Delta Futurista, owned by the visionary founder of the company himself, Eugenio Amos, in order to guarantee the required quality and reliability on the limited edition batch of 20 cars that were sold out in few weeks when the program was announced last year.

Only when Mr Amos’ prototype was fully validated, homologated and registered with an Italian license plate, he authorized the start of production of the limited edition batch of 20 units  to be delivered to his customers.

Each car was ordered with unique custom features and configuration, to suit owner’s personal choices as well as localization needs dictated by the country of destination.

“It has been an absolut first for us – said Luca Ciancetti, Head of the Automotive Business Unit in Podium Advanced Technologies – as we are used to developing road and racing protototypes and one-offs, but we never engaged ourselves in a small series production, as limited as it could be. However, as these beautiful cars are unique objects, specified by their owners one different from the other for a whole series of details and features, we like to think of  them as a series of one-offs, yet sharing the same level of construction quality and care for the smallest details.”
