The cars have arrived at Brands Hatch!

American Speedfest 2019 is nearly upon us with just one week to go.

We have supplied the vehicles for the Course Car (or Tuck!) and Safety Car which have been customised for the job.

The Safety Car is a 2010 Dodge Challenger RT equipped with 5.7 Litre V8 Hemi engine and automatic transmission. We carried out the following:

KW Adjustable Suspension and lowered the car
Stainless Works long tube exhaust headers with high flow catalytic converters
Borla Stainless steel Cat back exhaust
Corsa cold air intake
Uprated Power stop brake discs and brake pads front and rear
Uprated track Anti-roll bars by Eibach
Custom ECU tune set up on Dyno

The suspension modifications have dramatically improved handling and steering response, improved stance without sacrificing ride quality. Stopping power has been improved with the discs and pads and the powertrain modifications have found another 40BHP on top of factory plus flattened the torque curve and …. made it sound awesome! The exhaust note is a quiet V8 burble on tick over and when you are cruising, rising to a Hemi scream when you plant your right foot to the floor. 

The package has dramatically improved the car in all respects together with adding that unique custom flavour. 

If you are coming to Brands Hatch on 1st and 2nd June for American Speedfest you will see and hear it there being used as the safety car for the weekend. 

The pickup is a 2001 Chevrolet Silverado 5.3 Litre V8 Auto. This is a 53,000 truck that has had just one owner from new. It will be used as the Course Car and has had the following modifications: 

DJM Suspension with Belltech shock absorbers
Kooks Long Tube Stainless Headers with custom stainless side exit exhaust
KMC wheels and Toyo Proxes tyres
Upgraded discs and brake callipers
Race short travel steering box
K&N Cold air intake
Custom engine tune by Quest Motorsport
Rear roll pan
Satin Black wrap 

The car will be seen between races over the weekend and taking a few lucky VIP for track tours. 

We would love to see you at the historic race circuit and it is a great day (or days) out for all the family. We will have new and used Rams on show, a Challenger Hellcat Widebody and Jeep Trackhawk.

Please see American Speedfest for full details and contact us for any American Bespoke customisation and modification requirements.
