Covini C6W
Covini explained that the advantage of have four front wheels in a sports car : - less risk for front tyre deflating - less risk of aquaplaning - better braking - better grip - better comfort - better absorbing of frontal impact The 6CW project first started in 1974 and was developed until it became too difficult to build with the given resources.
This distinct concept had been used before on the Tyrell P34, a formula-one car that decreased drag by having smaller wheels and maintained grip by doubling them.
