Designed to suit a child from approx 7 -12 years, the car measures just over two metres long and the construction is based on standard kart running gear with a purpose-designed chassis, accurate double-clamshell GRP bodywork, carbon fibre and aluminium honeycomb composite floor with a bronze-welded tubular chassis and roll hoop. It’s configured to use an electric start, 4 HP Subaru Robin petrol engine with centrifugal clutch and chain drive to the rear axle which is fitted with a differential and hydraulic disc brake but it could easily be redesigned for ‘new generation' electric power. The green (gel coat) car is a rolling chassis which shows how the car is designed and constructed and will require final assembly and painting in the 935 colour scheme of your choice. All tooling, moulds and patterns are included to enable any number of subsequent cars to be produced.
The Martini-liveried car featured in the pictures was completed by our vendor and achieved £15,625 at a recent Bonhams sale which illustrates the potential. His intention was to produce a number of other cars but other projects have intervened. We understand that there are a number of short circuit events aimed at children with the most prestigious being the ‘Little Big Man’ at the Le Mans.
