Thread: Four58 Enzo Design and a new way to build

    Four58 Enzo Design and a new way to build

    Well there's been much speculation and with the recent pictures and problems xisco's had we've kept our plans quite but moved on with this project a little quicker than anticipated
    Most will know we showed the cad work over a year ago for the four458 but we were hanging on until the convertible was announced well we have what we need now
    A few on here will know we've been working on 3 genuine cars for a race team so we've been able to perfect the original cad we did, we've already done lights f+r, mirrors, diffuser and front and rear bumpers the lights and mirrors are made the same as our 430 ones totally complete and plastic injection made the other parts are very good!!!

    Part of redoing ourEDF430 was to bring on new equipment and technology and a new way of supplying kits.
    So our four58 coupe will be available for 3 donors, the Boxster, MR2roadster and a 3rd donor for the hard core enthusiast wanting mid engined v8 but a harder build
    All donors are on extended wheelbase's using a replacement rear subframe
    The body panels still GRP are made under vacuum with resin injection giving air free high quality panels each time. Body panel sets are 4000
    A donor specific fitting kit will be 1000 plus the subframe and suspension kits
    Were concentrating on a perfect interior kit to the same standard as our 430 one and a lot of high detail plastic parts inside and outside to get away from that slightly unfinished look that gives the game away.
    Everything will be coming out over the next 6 months lights available now, body panels available 8 weeks All models MR2 fitting kits about the same time Boxster ones 4 weeks later interiors in about 4 months
    MR2 kit first followed by Boxster then interior and finally our special kit
    As a legal note for accuracy it's not a copy it's cad and cnc machined and of course is nothing like an original and no part will fit etc etc etc and the tooth fairy is real but it does happen to be the same length and width but that was just a coincidence

    special kit = for the hard core enthusiast wanting mid engined v8 but a harder build


    4,000.00 GBP = 6,468.88 USD

    Question : will this be a 1 piece front an 1 pc. rear with seperate bumpers or bumpers attached
    In the USA if you pay a company / person to start a plug, then it,s your plug and work ,it is not theirs to sell or trade !!

    It's the same as our edf430 every panel is separate and it all bolts together
    All pre drilled in drill jigs and with threaded nut inserts bonded into it
    You fit our model specific fitting kit to your donor by bolting it in place to original donor mountings then fit the model specific inner panels and then the outer panels to finish it all 3 kits have the same outer panel set so if you bought the mr2 kit then changed your mind to a Boxster only the inner kit needs to be changed and there all available separately from our online shop which is all on schedule for beta testing this week and go live before end of month

    I think he said all 3 donors need to be stretched.. or their providing a rear subframe which extends the wheelbase.

    We are launching the coupe now
    We never stretch anything the process of cutting a unibody or monocoque is a not one we will ever be involved in. Instead we have made a new rear subframe this bolts into the donor cars current fixings for suspension tops, lowers and main mounts and then replicates them in the corrected position(Boxster) and on the MR2 it's a new set of wishbones
    The convertible will follow later but no dates yet as their is a lot to figure out before we make it were probably making the advent calendar or something that sounds like that from a certain Italian firm!

    question = Body panel sets are 4000 A donor specific fitting kit will be 1000 plus the subframe and suspension kits

    Does this include everything needed to get 458 ready? how about windows?
