I am selling my beautiful GKD track car which I am really reluctant to part with. I purchased it originally for sprint and hillclimb, track days and also road use, so it is fully road legal with new MOT.
It unfortunately never got on a track so I could not experience the full performance of this quick little car.
This car is a GKD Evolution based on the excellent Ginetta 27 Chassis introduced in the 1980`s and is a quality build with incredible attention to detail..
On 27 February 2005 GKD Sports Cars purchased the G27 chassis jigs, body moulds, patterns and drawings from Ginetta.
A number of improvements were introduced; to the front and rear aerodynamics, exterior styling, greater torsional rigidity for the chassis, reduced weight, and enhanced front suspension geometry. The cockpit was updated to give more interior space. GKD produced their own fabricated suspension uprights instead of compromising the design to take donor uprights.
The improved car - renamed the EVOLUTION - was launched in 2006.
This particular car was built over a period of 3 years and I have virtually every invoice and technical specification filed for this car including a CD with build pictures. It apparently cost well over £20.000 to build. The paint job alone was £3300 and almost every component is new or reconditioned.
The mileage is genuine at 2800.
