Which has more parts, a Racecar or a Racing Motorcycle?
- Both brands share an artisan process in the production of their competition vehicles
- More than 1,400 parts and 277 hours of work turn the standard chassis into a Leon Cup Racer
- A total of 2,060 parts and 80 hours of work go into a Ducati competition motorcycle
Two puzzles containing thousands of parts: The standard chassis of a Leon forms the basis for building a racecar. 1,400 parts are added to this structure to turn a production model into a Cup Racer. On the other hand, the 2,060 parts of a Ducati are mounted on a chassis that has been specifically designed for racing.
Up to 277 hours of handcrafted work: From the very first part, until the vehicle is completed, the teams of mechanics dedicate 277 hours to assemble the car and 80 hours to put together the motorcycle.
The heart of the machine: The Leon Cup Racer engine weighs in at 170 kilos, while the engine on the racing Ducati weighs 49 kilos. In both cases, it is one of the first components that get put into place. The difference between them is that the engine is lifted into the car with a crane, while on the motorcycle three mechanics lift the engine by hand to anchor it to the chassis.
