2018 Ares Panther: new images and details revealed
Ares Design has confirmed the Panther name for its Lamborghini Huracán-based supercar. Due to the complexity of production and demand for exclusivity from buyers, the production run is strictly limited to 21 units, with the first models leaving its factory in Modena, Italy, in October. A camouflaged development prototype of the Panther is currently being tested on the roads around the company's base in Modena, Italy. Ares Design, headed by former Lotus boss Dany Bahar, has also confirmed that all of 2018's build slots have been accounted for. The model is being produced as the first of the design house's several custom designs based on the Huracán’s platform. The car’s design influence comes from the De Tomaso Pantera – an exotic Italian supercar produced in 1971. The Panther's fold-down headlights and rear buttresses are clear nods to that car’s shape, but the new supercar receives a modern touch in way of large-diameter wheels and handle-free doors. The Panther will also feature Pirelli P Zero rubber with F1-inspired coloured strips. Beneath its coachbuilt body, the Panther uses the Huracán's underpinnings and a 5.2-litre V10 engine – the sole mass-produced unit to use 10 cylinders in production – which puts out 641bhp (39bhp more than the standard Huracán) and the same 560Nm of torque as the Lamborghini. No performance figures have been released by the company yet. In addition to the Panther, Ares Design's recently announced Modena facility will also handle the production of Ares’ growing range of offerings, which recently expanded to include the Mercedes-Benz G-class and Bentley Mulsanne-based models. Bahar’s design company is also creating 53 bespoke Land Rover Defenders in conjunction with the British engineering firm JE MotorWorks. “Our new facility in Modena works perfectly for the growing market of special requests from car enthusiasts and Project Panther is the first of a portfolio of cars – and other surprises - that we will be presenting at an official opening in January,” revealed Dany Bahar. Despite its current spot atop Ares’ range, the Panther could be trumped by a higher-ranking model within a year. The company boss has big plans for Ares Design to become a global leader in bespoke car creations and expand to incorporate the complete process of custom car production. Bahar said “there is much more to come” in the next few years. [...]

Atomic Motorsports riding school experience
The Atomic Racing school is a relatively new outfit that has been teaching riders for about a year now. Founded by racer Siddhanth Koundinya, the school teaches in two levels – the Engage platform is for anyone looking to improve their skills while the Elevate programme is catered around racers – current and aspiring. This being my first time riding with Atomic, I started off with the Engage session. The two-day training programme started off, quite literally, with a walk – a great way to begin things as it gives you a fresh perspective of the race track. A trick commonly used by racers at the start of a competitive weekend, walking the track allows you to fully appreciate its width and pick up more subtle details in the surface and surroundings that could otherwise be missed at higher speeds. It took a good 40min to walk the relatively short 2.1km of the Kari Motor Speedway, but it was time well-spent. The next two days were spent absorbing theory sessions in the classroom and heading out on track after each lesson to practise. Our calm and insightful instructor, Avinash Premnath, was constantly working with the students to figure out what was causing them trouble and how to fix it. Atomic is clear about the fact that they are a race team and a racing academy – they say as much on their website. This filters down to the style of instruction and much of the education is centred around improving the student’s skills on the racetrack. This not a basic riding school and you are expected to arrive already equipped with the basic knowledge of how to ride a motorcycle. The school will then teach you how to go faster – and more importantly, how to do so safely. Atomic Motorsports is quite multi-faceted. The team competes in the national racing championship and also provides open-track riding sessions that run on the school dates. A seat in the school costs Rs 17,999, or for Rs 9,999 you can book a slot in the open-track session that runs while the students are in the classroom. Participants are expected to bring their own protective gear and motorcycle, but the team will rent out a bike to those who need one. Atomic organises school sessions quite frequently at all three racetracks in India and you can keep an eye on their website or social media pages to see when the next session will be.  [...]
