Introducing the SV 9 Competizione
Concorso Italiano is proud to welcome SV Motor Company to the growing Concorso family of supporters. SV Motor Company is a subsidiary of SV Holdings, Inc., a privately held company, operating out of San Francisco’s famous North Beach district. SV Holdings is engaged in the development of a broad range of high quality products inspired by the Italian (and Italian-American) lifestyle. Chief among those products is the Italian-styled SV 9 Competizione sportscar (aka the “SV 9C” or “9C”).
To create the SV 9 Competizione, SV Motor Company put together an all-star team of auto industry specialists that includes Pratt & Miller Engineering; Corvid Technologies (www.corvidtechnologies.com); ANSA Automotive; Pirelli Tire; and WinterPark Engineering. The team was then tasked with creating an American–made car that married the strength of American craftsmanship with the classic style and sensibility of an Italian carrozzeria; a car, in other words, whose performance and aesthetic characteristics would rival those of the finest Italian road cars, but whose price point would bring the supercar driving experience within the reach of Americans for whom it might otherwise remain just a dream. To achieve this, the team designed and coachbuilt from scratch a new, highly advanced, and exquisitely styled, carbon–fiber body; it then combined that body with an enhanced version of the already world–class Corvette powertrain.
We think the team managed to far surpass its goals. We invite you to decide for yourself by kicking the SV 9C’s tires at this year’s Concorso.
