More HP/ton than a Veyron? ... under £10K?
In this exclusive new video to 7Spot we take a look at Ben Bonfield's two single-seater hill climb cars, a Jedi and an OMS.
Space frame chassis, bike engine and double wishbone suspension will be familiar to kit car owners, but this combination has a much more narrow focus.
Ben’s two 1000cc hill climb racers weigh around 300kg each and produce 200bhp – which is 667bhp/ton (compared to just 523bhp/ton for the Veyron) and can be bought for less than £10,000.
In fact at the time of writing one is for sale with a 600cc engine, needing a little work for just £3000!
If you thought single-seater cars were the reserve of the rich, think again.
Ben takes us through both of his cars – which in the age-old phrase are similar but different – giving an insight into what is under the skin of these purebred racers.
If your ambition is to race a car with wings & slicks, you should watch this video.
