Throughout our history we permanently defy the traditions.

We do everything differently. From the spirit of Hiroshima to the highest degree of compression in the petrol and diesel engines - we are creating a story in which the impossible is possible. This is the result of our unique philosophy and creative approach.

Due to our daring technical philosophy we always achieve the best results in the fields of aerodynamic design and feeling of oneness with the car.
