The sports racer model designation appears to have changed. It is now being referred to as the B6-S, and longer the D65 as previously reported.


"Gloria, owned by Sparco founder Enrico Glorioso, has been building motorcyle-powered formula cars in Italy and is now entering the U.S. with that car and a new D65 D Sports Racing car built from the open wheeler. The cars are chrome-moly tubeframe fiberglass bodies and can accept any motorcycle engine. Safety has been a focus, with the car meeting all FIA regulations and features such as a carbon fiber nose crush box and, on the formula car, anti-take-off devices in front of the wheels to prevent tire-to-tire contact. Six-piston calipers squeeze the brakes at both ends, and the pushrods act on single-adjustable coilovers. These cars have not been hologated by SCCA and the company has not identified a U.S. distributor."1
