is having more of something a good thing? apparently, an Italian engineering company, Covini Engineering, thinks so by making a six wheeled supercar. Covini believes the C6W extra axle upfront and a pair of wheels will provide more grip, brakes better, have better resistance to aquaplaning and also improved crash protection.

powering the rear wheel drive Covini C6W is the naturally aspirated 4200cc V-8 power plant, capable of 325 kW and a maximum torque of 470 Nm (@ 2700 rpm). power is transmitted to its rear wheel via a mechanical six-speed gear box and comfort department is handled by independent front and rear wishbones. the C6W first appeared six years ago and is finally going into production.

well, i am not sure if its a good idea to have more wheels. technically speaking it may just encourage understeering, even though it is a rear wheel drive vehicle. on top of that, it need some getting use saying this to your mechanic “err, for my ride’s tire change… i will need six of them” duh!
