Monoposto - Silver DialPosted by WindingRoad_Racing about 2 months, 3 weeks ago
The Monoposto is produced in a Limited Edition of 500 pieces, with 250 Black dials and 250 silver dials. Each piece is individually numbered and lavishly presented in a numbered collector's box.
The Monoposto -- literally meaning "single seat" -- was created to recall a simpler era of Grand Prix racing, when the only information the driver had was contained in a few oversized dials and in the seat of his pants.
In this golden age, things were a little less mathematical than today. Since there were no rev limiters or electronic aids to keep the driver from blowing up his engine, well intentioned mechanics would commonly apply a strip of red tape, or a line of red paint on the glass of the rev counter to make sure the driver knew his engine’s limit at a glance. Autodromo pays homage to this humble practice with our own red line crystal.
The full grain, hand crafted Italian leather strap and polished roller buckle are inspired by the hood straps that would keep the car's bonnet in place at high speeds.
