AMS1 News Update June 2006
Well it has been a fantastic few months here at Adrenaline Motorsport. The
engineering development work on AMS1 has been moving ahead at an astonishing
rate. The styling translation from paper to reality has exceeded even our
expectations and the car looks truly breathtaking.
We have been making the move into our new production facility from our previous
development premises. The move will be completed in June, the new facility
giving us the capacity to produce our full annual target of cars whilst
continuing the existing successful Motorsport preparation business. There have
been a number of other projects on the go in our workshops recently including
the completion of several kit cars that had been part built by their owners and
the preparation of a Subaru Impreza WRX which will be competing in the British
National Hillclimb Championship.
We have been working very hard at finalizing the specifications and options that
AMS1 will offer. The range now offers something for everyone with entry level
specifications for those with a lower budget (or younger drivers who need a
lesser engine spec to be able to insure the car) through to cars offering true
supercar slaying performance with phenomenal power to weight ratios. Whatever
you want from your AMS1 we are sure to be able to satisfy the requirements.
Comprehensive details will be available soon when the full website goes live
towards the end of June.
AMS1 will be launched and officially named in August 2006 and will then appear
at the TotalKitCar Live! event at Snetterton race circuit. This will give you
the opportunity to see the car up close in our pit garage stand and to
experience the performance of the car out on the track. Be warned, this is an
incredibly addictive machine and once sampled rational purchasing decisions will
go out of the window! The demonstrator car will then be traveling extensively to
many shows and trackdays all over the UK. Of course factory visits will be
welcome from the latter part of July where a range of our vehicles and customers
cars will be available for viewing.
The response to our car from around the world has been quite astonishing with
the 2006/7 production run looking likely to be a mere fraction of the demand. We
are therefore going to be writing to all parties that have expressed an interest
to date offering the opportunity to reserve a slot in our 2006 and 2007
production schedules. These slots will be offered on a strictly first come first
served basis, whether for component form or fully built vehicles.
The AMS1 has been designed to offer an enjoyable self build experience, using a
majority of the Subaru donor parts in totally unmodified form. Whilst the
Impreza is a technically advanced car it is straightforward to work on and
service and with a methodical approach should hold no fears for the DIY mechanic
(in fact 3 sizes of spanner/socket will cover most needs!).
The build manual has been set out to provide a comprehensive overview of the
build process and includes lots of pictures to illustrate the steps involved in
creating your supercar. Everything required to build your car is included in the
kit options (excluding parts from the donor vehicle) which means that the AMS1
is a true single donor kit.
With kits options including both Comprehensive and Modular formats this is a car
that can be built as and when budgets and space allow, we can even source
suitable donor vehicles for you in the UK or direct from Japan if required.
AMS1 early on in the development process.
As we now move toward production and the first customer deliveries starting in
August we would like to thank you for your continued interest in our project. We
hope to meet with many of you in the coming months and look forward to sharing
our passions for great performance cars, and of course to building epic
sportscars to meet your every dream and desire
