The Gregis brand will launch with two models arriving in 2015, a version of the Leggera sports car originally planned to be sold under the ATS brand, as well as a new model dubbed the Miranda Roadster. Like ATS, Gregis will be based in the Canary Islands and rely on the talents of Italian engineers.
As its name suggests, the Leggera, Italian for “light,” will be a lightweight sports car aimed at buyers seeking a simple, no frills speedster. It will be available with a range of four-cylinder engines sourced from major automakers, and will be offered as a completed car or as a kit, with the latter expected to be priced from just 14,950 euros (approximately $18,665).
Gregis is currently investigating introducing a one-make racing series for the Leggera and there are also plans for a battery-powered electric version.
The Miranda Roadster is currently in the prototype stage but when completed is expected to weigh less than 2,500 pounds and have an output of close to 500 horsepower (Gregis is planning to source a modern V-8 or V-12 powerplant). Gregis estimates a 0-62 mph time of 3.5 seconds for the car.
The Miranda Roadster will have a price tag of about 130,000 euros (approximately $162,198).
