Engine Tuner Ltd proprietor Alan Jeffery, the factory appointed engine builder for the Murtaya sportscar, took the current demonstrator car to the Trax 2007 car show at Silverstone on Sunday 2nd September.
In front of over 40,000 attending spectators the Murtaya finished an incredible second overall in the 0-60mph challenge, being pitted against some of the countries leading tuned cars as well as many members of the Gumball 3000 Club driving everything from Porsches Carrera GT’s to Ferrari 430 and Lamborghini Gallardo’s.
The demonstrator car in question was running in full road specification including fitted hardtop, electric windows, standard transmission and on fully treaded road tyres (Toyo Proxes T1). Equipped with a factory specification engine producing 340bhp the car blasted up the timed strip in a scorching 3.5 seconds drawing gasps and expletive filled comments from the assembled onlookers!
Getting ready for a timed run.
Alan Jeffery commented, “We have many years of experience building and tuning these Impreza engines and are delighted to be building the factory motors for Adrenaline Motorsport. What we have proved here today is that this fantastic car is capable of destroying super cars costing 10 times as much in the toughest of proving grounds where there is nowhere to hide - all while running in a very mild state of tune!”.
