Would this make you mad
A one-off prototype convertible, valued at £2million, was stolen yesterday in Fulham. The pre-production Delfino Feroce was left outside a flat by Delfino chairman and founder Allard Marx; he parked it there for just 45 minutes.
The Delfino Feroce ("fierce dolphin" in Italian) is based upon the running gear and powertrain of the Subaru Impreza WRX STi (276 bhp, 256 lb ft torque), but has its own unique composite-fibre monocoque body and cabin. It can accelerate from 0-60 mph in just 3.8 seconds, to a top speed of 150 mph. Planned to go into production next year, it will cost around £55,000.
The stolen Feroce is a black convertible with the personalised numberplate M1 NMD. As the only one in existence, it will prove difficult to sell on - and easy to recognise. Anyone with information is asked to call Kensington Police on 0208 246 0816.
