2007 Concept Climax Roadster

Inspired by the legendary Cooper Climax F1 car of the late 50’s, The Climax is a modern take on a British sports car, designed with the motoring enthusiast in mind. The car is a two seater with ample weekend away space. Powered by ethanol, The Climax offers competitive performance figures comparable to the Lotus Elise. The driver can programme the car via their lap top and make adjustments to the car’s ECU using the Climax Control, enabling the car to be used on the road or as a track-day racer.

The light weight body, rigid chassis and minimal un-sprung weight ensures the climax has ultimate stance and balance.

The Climax offers a unique driving experience, designed with no roof, windscreen or doors. Sprinting to the car, launching your self over the bodywork, into the cockpit will evoke memories of classic Le Mans type race cars. The combination of wind in your face and being seated 6 inches from the road adds to the extreme feeling of speed and gives your body a shot of adrenaline every time. By using the Climax Control, within seconds, the car can be set up for the country lane or boosted to the max for the track.
