Track-oriented street cars are rapidly gaining market demand and now there is a new worthy addition – the Phiaro P75 Concept CIPHER. The concept car was introduced during the 2015 Geneva Motor Show and some of you might recognise the name of the Japanese company, Phiaro, which specialises in industrial, transport and automotive design for external parties; the P79 Concept CIPHER, however, was designed and built in-house by Phiaro.

CIPHER - the abbreviation of Cae Integrated PHiaro Engineered Racer – is a two-seater dreamt up by the company’s engineers; it is, according to their imagination, the perfect weekend car that could hold its own on the tracks and then comfortably cruise the roads on the way home.

The CIPHER's 1.5-litre engine generates 142hp and is mated to a five-speed manual gearbox. Not an impressive number, for sure, but the CIPHER compensates by being super light. The engineers had taken a less-is-more approach with a minimalistic structure, shedding as much weight as possible to tip the scale at only 1,314 pounds.

The sharp angles and exposed mechanism is undeniably similar to the KTM X-Bow that was launched in the same motor show seven years ago.
