Luxury coachbuilder ARES Modena today announced that it would be supporting the LuisaViaRoma for UNICEF Gala in St Barth on Wednesday 29th December.
In support of the charity gala dinner, the Modenese atelier is giving organisers three handcrafted vehicles for its auction. Guests will be able to bid for a special edition S1 Biposto supercar, which has been expressly designed for the occasion, a Land Rover Defender Spec 1.5 Cabriolet and a matching ARES Scrambler motorbike.
A sure-fire hit with connoisseurs of beauty, speed and the open road, the supercar will feature a unique and audacious design; the driver and passenger are shielded by individual canopies which descend to seat level, allowing each to share the lower cockpit area while the car’s intercom ensures conversation.
Like its sister model, the S1 Biposto shares all the features and engineering of the S1 Project, which houses a naturally aspirated V8 engine with direct injection with the power transmitted to the rear wheels via an 8-speed dual-clutch gearbox.
For guests wishing to go off-road, they will have the opportunity to bid for the ultimate toy, an ARES Defender Spec 1.5 and its ARES Scrambler motorbike. Billed as the ultimate toys for grown-up boys, the bespoke pairing allows drivers and riders to continue the quest for the thrill off-road experiences with the open-top Land Rover Defender and the unique Scrambler motorbike.
The evening will feature a special performance by Dua Lipa and will include a cocktail reception, an exclusive dinner, a live auction of art and bespoke items and experiences.
Funds raised during the event will support UNICEF’s work in providing care and protection to vulnerable children across the globe. Despite the global challenges brought on by the pandemic, UNICEF continues to fight daily for the rights of children in need — providing safe shelter, nutrition and protection from conflicts, natural disasters and inequality.
