The ION GT55 is Scarpas tamed Car for people during their midlife crisis or those that just want to show off. Or the people that want a sporty, yet comfortable, easy to drive Grand Tourer and don't care about money. It won't spin out and kill you unless you provocate it intentzonally.
It is powered by a 5.5L crossplane V8 (which is really unusual for Scarpa) and has awd, with a 37-63 power split. It features a sequential, clutchless gearbox with 6 speeds, a 5 speed torque coinverter auto gearbox was an option too as the sequential has no auto mode.
The car has a really soft ride for a Scarpa and feels heavier (but also more planted) than their other models, so it really isn't a true sports car but more for high speed cruising.
The engine makes 520hp, has a lot of torque and is relatively quiet. It is limited to 338kph.
