This hand-built mid-engine Hot Rod is one of two parallel built identical
cars. They are handcrafted in aluminium and carbon composite. The exterior
and interior design is exquisitely austere with a nostalgic retrospective
feeling. The ethanol converted Volvo V8 engine sends the power to the rear
wheels through the 6-speed Geartronic transmission. To help keep the engine
cool, the rear decklid automatically opens when a preset temperature is
reached inside the engine compartment. Up front is a small luggage compartment
and a location for mechanicals functioning ABS-brakes etc.
The custom fabricated tubular steel frame is formed by hand, as the special fabricated stainless steel A-arms for the fully independent front and rear suspension systems with Ohlins shock absorbers. The front uprights are made in milled aluminium and at the rear welded high grade sheet metall. Braking up front is handled via 4-piston Brembo calipers and 345-mm discs while the rear contains ventilated discs. Inside, all panels and seats are dressed in finest Scottish leather. All parts are special made to give the car a sporty and factory look.
