In 1963 Vignale were producing around 40 cars per day.

Vignale always exhibits an astonishingly wide range of vehicles, and considering that his methods are based on hand-beaten panels-even for his limited series production cars-the external finish of the show models is unsurpassed. Star attraction here is a monoposto racing car called the New Star jet, with a very pointed Perspex snout and a lift-up canopy hood in the same material. The suspension parts have been beautifully machined by Maserati, and the rear section of the car is wide enough to take the transversely mounted vee-12 1.5-litre engine and integral transmission which the same company has in an advanced state of development.
