A quick spin around the latest MST offering, the “MK1”. Shot in scenic Snowdonia during a break in the traditionally bleak weather where it spent the day in the very capable hands of The Late Brake Show’s Jonny Smith. If you haven’t seen his review of the car, check out the video below…
Following the successful road test last week, next test was some track testing at Donington race circuit were we could really put the car through its paces. Again the car ran faultlessly and was keeping up with some very fast track cars. We are very please with how the car handles both on the road and on the track.
So we finally got the new MST Mk1 out of the factory for its first road test and we are very pleased to say that the car ran really well, very responsive and the all steel 2.0L BDG engine is very lively. A big milestone in the journey of bringing the Mk1 back on the road as a new car, the first since 1975. Next will be the final preparations for the IVA test in September and we hope to be able to officially launch the Mk1 in October on a 71 plate.
So here we have a glimpse of the first Mk1 bodyshell. Now fully assembled and spot welded.
Built here in North Wales UK, and available to pre-order now. We expect to start delivering customer bodyshells later this year.
This particular bodyshell will be built as a road registered car, powered by a 2.0L BDG engine on fuel injection!
Here we have the latest developments for the all new Mk1, including FIA spec seat rails, mountings for the alloy fuel tank, dry sump tank, fuel pumps etc. All critical parts are dry fitted during the fabrication stage so that once the car is painted, all parts should bolt straight on – (no drilling of holes required) Further modifications include rear firewall, gearbox tunnel and various strengthening brackets and gussets.
Due to high level of requests, we now have a prototype Mk1 bodyshell available for viewing at Motorsport-Tools. Its not yet a complete bodyshell, it requires outer quarter panels and roof to complete, we are just waiting on these from the Magnum factory.
Pre-orders being taken now with a limited number of shells available this year, on a ‘first come first served’ basis, (Please contact us for more details)
