The chassis is built from stainless steel and aluminium panelling, which along with the fibreglass and Kevlar bodywork equals a 380kg dry weight. It has all-independent, double-wishbone suspension all-round, with fully-adjustable coilover shock absorbers.

The 1150kg of downforce, when the huge front and rear spoilers are fitted, means that the Sport 1000 can pull 4G of lateral G-force when fitted with track slicks. The car is on sale now, from €25,000 (£19,920 at current exchange rates).
