    bentley speed8 le mans build


    hey

    a new project for me...

    I can buy a full carbon fiber Bentley Speed8 body kit replica somewhere for $2k. Below you see the pic. I thought it would be GREAT to make my own car out with it. I think I'm going to use donorcar for the chassis, engine and gearbox.

    Do you guys give me any chance? I'm pretty handy with carbon fiber for bodywork modifications.

    Keep you updated!

    the PIC is a REAL bentley, not the one i can buy.

    which is a hand crafted full carbon fibre ! not glassfibre! replica, never used.
    unpainted. looks identical.

    i think the guy has still the molds... but it was one body he had!





    some problems

    -comes ex front window :
    -needs some modification to fit my chassis
    -comes in 5 parts or so just upper panels

    by the way, I don't know how the bentley body can fit a front engine Mercedes chassis ...... even you put the gearbox from Mercedes into a mid engine chassis it will not gonna work in this bentley's dimension , see the original one! http://www.mulsannescorner.com/bentleylmgtp03-3.html
