Historic race cars are one of the most discussed topics amongst us, whilst looking for historic race car developments this firm based in Scotts Valley California caught my eye.
Canepa Design headed by Bruce Canepa who has always had a huge interest in anything and everything automotive related, from classic collectors cars and bikes to race cars of all ages. The company has built numbers of amazing historic race cars for collectors and classic car enthusiasts, cars like the Datsun 240z IMSA GT/U, ’69 Dodge Charger Daytona and ’92 Nissan GTP ZX Turbo are amongst the many amazing race cars they have in thier inventory.
At this point in time the company is attempting to break the Landspeed record at Bonneville in the G/Blown Fuel Competition Coupe class record in conjunction with GM and So-Cal Speedshop. Currently the record stands at an amazing 226.835 mph which was set 15 years ago!. They will be using thier Chevrolet HHR capable of 1000+ hp and predicted top speed of 260+ mph, for detailed spec and information this car visit this link
