Head to the track in a kit car resembling Bentley’s Le Mans winning classic.
Specializing in unique prototype car and sports car kit bodies, Bulgarian-based kit car company Aeromaster Sports Cars has revealed a replica kit for the 2003 Bentley Speed 8 marking ten years since the prototype racer won the 2003 Le Mans 24 Hours. Dubbed the Aeromaster LMP, it comes with a steel space frame chassis and a bolt-on fiberglass body designed using CAD software. Said to be 80 percent accurate, mods were made to ensure the kit was easy to build and maintain.
While the Bentley Speed 8 was powered by an Audi-sourced 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8, the Aeromaster LMP has only be designed to take the same PRV V6 engine used in the DMC Delorean. So while the kit is sure to turn heads at the track, the 136 horsepower sent to the tarmac via a five-speed Renault manual box is a bit of a letdown. The basic body kit is priced at 5,800 Euros and the standard chassis package at 4,600 Euros. Optional extras include and LMP spoiler, windscreen and side windows.
