Crazy Mojave concept tops the Sbarro billing at Geneva 2017

Swiss design school Sbarro uses its home show to reveal its unusual selection of concept vehicles

Guided by veteran designer Franco Sbarro, students at the École Espera Sbarro in Montbéliard have concocted a handful of curious concept cars for the 2017 Geneva Motor Show.

Chief among them is the open-top Mojave roadster, which contains a manual five-speed gearbox and a 4.0-litre petrol engine producing 290bhp. 

Something that might fare better off the beaten track is the ArCad, an off-road buggy that's similar in concept to the Ariel Nomad.

It's got a bit more power, though, as it's powered by a 266bhp 4.6-litre V8 petrol engine. TheArCad weighs 1,100kg and features knobbly tyres that look equipped to tackle terrain tougher than the usual asphalt variety.

Also part of Sbarro’s Geneva line-up is the Pendo-Traction, a three-wheeled bike which sends all of the power its 650cc engine has to give - some 74bhp, it is believed - through its front wheel.

Rounding things off is the fourth and final offering from the Sbarro team: a bizarre 400cc three-seater prototype dubbed the Tracto-Sphere, which has a six-speed manual gearbox and a hybrid powertrain.
