Unique Utah 8 prototype designed by designer Luigi Colani. Here we have a work of art created by Colani’s team of engineers in 1989, in a unique piece like any other vehicle in the UTAH series. A BMW 1000cc motorcycle mechanics was installed on this prototype for testing in the UTAH Desert (Salty Desert) where Professor Colani carried out all his speed and technical tests, with 4-speed turbocharger with a power of 160 hp and rear axle of the Lotus Super Seven.
A combination of mechanical technology for a height of only 90 cm and a weight of just 550 kg. Mechanics, as in most Luigi Colani’s prototypes, was only used for tests and then removed.
This car was on display in the most important International Designers’ Shows, on YouTube and the Web there are dozens of videos about the car, and some archive photos of the car were included as a complement to the auction.
Currently the car is in good condition, with signs of age as shown in photos, which don’t affect its beauty in any way, without mechanics but with braking system, frame and shock absorbers as was the case originally.
The car has no documents, it is sold with a statement of lawful origin and with a regular contract of sale with the company that owns it.
The official book autographed by Luigi Colani, where there is an archive of all his prototypes, will be given together with the vehicle.
