Design students from the “Espera Sbarro design school have teamed up with French television’s ‘Turbo’ car show to build the Turbo S20 Barchetta concept car to mark both the TV show and the design school’s twentieth birthdays.” Lots of pictures after the jump.

The roadster features an open top cockpit and a mid-engined rear-drive configuration and weighs just 1150kg. Power comes from a 5.0L V8 engine sourced from Mercedes Benz that’s mated to a five-speed gearbox and develops 350hp. Fat 20in alloys with 335mm Michelin rubber fill out the rear wheel arches with smaller 19in units in the front housing OZ racing brakes
