Inspired by both the American Muscle cars and the Americans favourite vehicle; The Pick-up
Truck, the PHOENIX is a 2-seater car, that is both agile and tough. A mid-ship engine placed right behind the cabin and four-wheel-drive provides balance, grip and a low centre of gravity. The strong stance is complemented by the relaxed character of the car's main use.
