A world of exclusive sports car design and engineering.

Based in Modena, Italy we draw on the automotive heritage of the city to inspire our team to take extreme pride and care in every step of the manufacturing process, ensuring that aesthetics and performance combine to produce the ultimate in automotive excellence.

ARES Philosophy

ARES was created with one simple goal - to provide its customers with the ultimate in bespoke luxury automotive design and engineering. With a team of leading engineers and technicians headed by renowned designer Mihai Panaitescu, ARES creates unique, handcrafted, high-performance pieces.

From the most lightweight carbon fibre to the very best in Italian leather, our highly skilled engineers push the limits of what is possible in order to create a new level of engine performance and driver enjoyment. The result is unlimited personalization, tailored to perfection.

Performance & Craftmanship

Performance is key in our production and our highly skilled engineers are able to significantly increase base performance through careful engine modifications and weight reduction throughout the vehicle. Interior aesthetic modifications are also vital in the manufacturing of ARES cars. The master craftsmen at our state of the art production facility carefully assemble and stitch together all interior elements by hand, ensuring that each car is an individual work of art.
