Students at ESPERA Sbarro Montbeliard have unveiled Sbarro Eight, a stunning hotrod concept. Combining the old school hot rod with the lines of a futuristic stealth bomber, the car is powered by a 3.2L twin-turbocharged Masserati V8 engine that churns out 368-horsepower.

The interior features plenty of real wood and leather, custom built fiberglass seats with hand-stitched leather pieces, and a Parrot Asteroid Smart car radio with a 6.2-inch screen,” according to Hi Consumption.
