So that's when I first talked with Neil Yates. I asked one of the biggest questions I had: would the AMS1 be available in
the States? Neil stated it was designed with U.S. regulations in mind.
Little did I know, one of the very first AMS1s would be headed to the U.S...
For the next few months, I eagerly kept my eye on Adrenaline Motorsport and
The Adrenaline Motorsport website goes live (http://www.adrenalinemotorsport.co.uk/).
Along with it came the official name of the AMS1: the Murtaya. We
have yet to be told what it means, and I have only found a few clues on Google
as to a true definition...[Ed. Update: We now have the source of "Murtaya",
straight from Neil himself; find out on the
Murtaya Q&A page.]
Pictures of the body parts and then the entire Murtaya start showing up...
The Donington show was supposed to be Murtaya's big debut, but the demo car
hit a few snags and it was decided that the full debut should be postponed until
the demo was in complete and proper form.
The Murtaya was finally shown and from the very beginning got a lot of looks, positive comments,
and orders from observers.
Reviews start to show up on the Murtaya from
Also, more photographs of the Murtaya's interior and hardtop show up:
When I first searched Google for "Murtaya" or "AMS1", I would be lucky to get
a few hits. Less than a year later, I get
pages of news articles, forum
threads, and even reviews referring to Adrenaline Motorsport's little roadster.
