the British Sportscars 1, or BS1 for short, should offer the performance and driver appeal of cars that normally cost twice as much and offer a Le Mans type driving experience.
The BS1 would have a space frame chassis built from aluminum and steel, with body panels made from glass fiber-reinforced plastic and carbon fiber. The mid-mounted engine would be a VW 3.0-liter V6 turbodiesel engine tuned to produce 250 horsepower and 475 Nm (350 lb-ft) of torque. The sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) shouldn’t take more than 4.5 seconds, while top speed should be 147 mph (236 km/h). Average fuel consumption would reach 4.7 liters/100 km (50 mpg US), with CO2 emissions rated at 199 g/km.
