Build a car that can win at Le Mans!
In 1965 anyway... Modern chassis technology, better materials, better tires and suspension parts, and owing to our unwavering commitment to racing performance, the simple truth is that the Coupe you build would be capable of winning on the grid at LeMans in 1965. Think about that for a moment!
In a world of bench racers and big talkers, our cars consistently deliver. The truth is also that most customer-built Coupes could not only compete very well back in the 60's, but are among the fastest and best performing cars on the road today.
Car & Driver magazine tested one of our first Coupes back in 2000. The car was nicely equipped with an IRS suspension, a crate 392 Ford Engine that was making 440 hp, and a cool stack induction system (that probably cost us as much hp as it gave us cool factor).
The car was built for close to $40,000 in parts and was tested on race tires. The car ran 0-60 in 3.6 seconds and sprinted to the quarter mile in 11.9 seconds. Click the link to the left for a performance chart.
"The phrase eye-ball sucking performance is a tired, overused metaphor, but it should have been saved for the FFR Coupe. Galloping to 60 mph takes only 3.6 seconds. Bye Bye Porsche 911 Turbo! The quarter mile passes in only 11.9 seconds at 119 mph, faster than a Viper GTS!..."
