Boss and owner of new kit car manufacturer Peninsula Sports Cars got in touch with Madabout-Kitcars.com to keep us up to date with progress of his latest purchases, the Minari and Supersnake, a modern Cobra style car for the budget conscious.
Paul will tell you more.....
"I bought Minari from AMS in 2008 as they had enough on their plate with the Murtaya. I am re marketing the Minari in it's original form now and have a new version under development to upgrade the mechanical donor. This will be The Fiesta MK3/4 using the lovely Sigma engine."
"Other issues such as very high sills, window not winding down far, and lack of room for tall and wider drivers will be addressed. I am 6ft 4ins and a bit wider than average, so all shapes and sizes will fit in future. A motor bike engined 400kg version is planned for the RSR track car, road legal if desired. A fold away hard top is also planned negating the need for separate soft and hard tops on the RS model."
"I am also launching the SUPERSNAKE, a Cobra style car firmly aimed at the budget market. It is not intended to be a replica as the car is FWD and based on a Mondeo V6 ST220(though any Mondeo can be used)."
Peninsula Sports Cars Kit Car line up - the Supersnake and Minari.
"It is a re-body/upper spaceframe conversion to a shortened Mondeo floor pan leaving the running gear undisturbed. Everything required for the conversion will be provided in one kit for ú5500 inclusive (price to be finalised by end of 2010 and subject to the new vat increase) making it possible to build a car for ú6500!"
"The original prototype built by the designer Richard Stuart, is based on a 54 plate 3.0 st220, a 6 month old demo car at the time of conversion."
