Coupe build funded by SATA German Engineering. Coupe built by childhood cancer survivors.

The Euro-Luxury Style Coupe's styling cues are drawn from the Mercedes 300SL and the Ferrari 275GT.
The color and wheel choices of the vehicle pay a beautiful tribute to the luxury performance vehicles of the 1960s.

This custom Coupe is a part of the Austin Hatcher Foundation’s Industrial Arts STEM Program and Youth Engagement. The Industrial Arts - STEM Therapy program serves a multipurpose function: first, to introduce and educate a STEM-based trade to children of all ages, and second, to treat and improve coordination deficits, behavioral, memory loss, learning and many other deficits as results of childhood cancer for both the affected child and their siblings.
The Foundation’s vision through its services is to enhance therapeutic interventions through youth engagement with fun and exciting real-world activities that transfer into functional skill sets and build a strong interest and alliance with the automotive industry.
