Murtaya Stars at Goodwood Festival of Speed 2008
Complete Kit Car magazine took a large stand at the 2008 Goodwood Festival of
Speed hoping to increase the awareness of the kit car industry to a new group
of buyers - people who would not normally consider purchasing a kit car.
To get the message across the magazine built a large stand communicating just
how significant the kit industry has been to the British sportscar market,
showing the history of kits from the first 1950’s Lotus 7 through TVR, Marcos,
Ginetta, Caterham and Noble. All recognized mainstream manufacturers who
started off in our innovative niche sector.
The stand was a great success with the magazine selling lots of subscriptions
and being constantly inundated with questions and queries from interested show
goers who had been drawn in by the intriguing mix of cars and excellent
To showcase the cars in question a beautiful 1953 Lotus 7 was displayed, along
side a 1970’s Nova which has been painstakingly restored, with the Murtaya
being chosen to demonstrate the pinnacle of today’s kit car industry with
stunning styling, state of the art CAD software used in the chassis design,
phenomenal performance, and great value for money.
The Murtaya received an incredible reception from those attending the show,
many of whom had never heard of the car before. The concept of light weight,
turbo power and four wheel drive igniting the flames of desire in every petrol
head from every walk of life!
With sales now approaching 40 units in just 18 months and an ever growing
international following the Murtaya’s deserved reputation as a supercar slayer
looks set to see AMS on the way to gaining the recognition achieved by the
other British Sportscar greats.
