GBS AND MOTUL TEAM UP ON THE ‘ZERO MOTUL EDITION’ AND THERE’S A COMPETITION!

Motul is delighted to announce a new partnership project with bespoke UK car constructor, Great British Sports Cars (GBS): the Motul-Edition GBS Zero. The lightweight hand-crafted sportscar is now in build with the Nottinghamshire company, ahead of a public reveal at the end of July during The Classic at Silverstone.

The Motul-Edition GBS Zero will feature a host of Motul-inspired design features unique to this partnership but, even more than this, the whole build will feature Motul involvement.

GBS is proud of its in-house engineering capabilities and manufactures the vast majority of components from scratch, using Motul throughout the various processes. From More >

INTAKE OF VREATH FOR ZETEC

The Ford Zetec engine has been the tuners engine of choice for over 20-years thanks to its lightweight, low cost and ease of tuning. Tuners know that one of the easiest ways to liberate power from a Zetec is to fit a pair of Weber DCOE carburettors.

The key component in that conversion is the intake manifold and Webcon can provide a top quality, UK manufactured, 60mm deep intake manifold that allows fitment of both Weber DCOE carburettors as well as DCOE flange EFI throttle bodies.

The Webcon Zetec DCOE manifold is available as part number MW5000 priced at £335.65 inc VAT.

RESTO RADIO

Love this very cool period-looking radio from Car Builder Solutions. It cleverly disguises the fact it has Bluetooth®, DAB+ and is hands-free compatible.

If you have a more classically styled kitcar or period replica and like a bit of incar entertainment then this could be for you.

You can choose from black or chrome finishes and it costs £150.

SEE CLEARLY NOW

This item could be of real interest to kitcar enthusiasts. Heatedwindscreen.com part of Ricky Evans Motorsport (Glass) Ltd of Tamworth produces a range of standard and heated windscreens to suit all sorts of classic cars which would naturally enough include a few classic replicas, too, no doubt.

The heated option could be a bonus for those that use their kitcars during the colder months as once it’s wired and switched on, small tungsten filaments within the laminate raise the surface temperature of the glass, which is exactly the same thing that the screen on your modern daily driver does.

CLASSIC MOTORS FROM MOUNTUNE

Now that David Mountain is back in the hot seat at Mountune he’s just announced a return to his roots with a new division called Mountune Classic Engines.

From the title, it’s pretty easy to work out what the core business will be and much of it will naturally be classic Ford engines although David is happy to look at other stuff. As he cut his teeth under Glyn Swift at Swiftune on Classic Mini engines, I expect a few A-Series to be heading his way.

MONTE MOUNTS!

The Lancia Monte Carlo is almost an honorary kitcar! Especially when a few of them have been used as a donor various Italianate rally replicas such as the Lancia Abarth 037, over the years.

Whenever GAZ produces a one-off suspension component for a customer, they then add that part to their catalogue and make it available for other owners of that vehicle model.

This can sometimes lead to some quite obscure parts becoming available. One such example is the GAZ solid suspension mounts for the Lancia Monte Carlo.

These billet aluminium mounts replace the rubber mounts used on production cars and provide a More >
