Our Builds

If you didn't get to see them during the year, throughout 2023, our team started, completed, or were amidst a handful of influential builds. These projects could be found around the country, being sat in by customers at shows, competing head-to-head in Time Attack at GRIDLIFE, driving the streets of Connecticut while hauling our team to our favorite lunch spots, and even cresting mountains on dirt roads in Oregon. 

 

MINI Cupper

Taking an R56 Mini Cooper from "Zero" to "Hero"
GRIDLIFE's "Sundae Cup" Time Attack series promises "motorsport for the masses," utilizing a strict rulebook built around inexpensive cars to promote track time and heavy competition at a price point accessible to all.

Traditionally, the class is dominated by the car it was built upon, the Honda Fit. But as a European alternative that fit perfectly into the class's power-to-weight restrictions, we surmised that a base-model R56 Mini Cooper might be the Sundae Cup stone left unturned.

Volvo 850 Project

The 850 Project "Levels Up" in Season 2
Jacob purchased his $850 project with the intention of not only proving the viability of the Volvo P80 platform for performance driving in the 21st century, but also as a statement; buying and creating a car you love doesn't always have to be a financially-exhausting endeavor.

Golden Era

The "Golden Era," Reimagined
The "Golden Era" of DTM racing in Europe, beginning in the late 1980s and extending to the early 1990s, would go on to shape motorsport for decades to come. The cars were cutting-edge, the engineering was clever and groundbreaking, and the competition was fierce, all in vehicles that looked like your relative's daily driver.

While the cars of competition were decades ahead of their time, you can't help but wonder what the introduction of modern technology and design would look like when applied to some of the best racecars ever made. Enter FCP Euro's 190E 2.0-16, the ultimate Evolution of the Mercedes 190E.

Coming Soon: Porsche Cayman S Rallye

Join us as we explore Porsche's distinguished history in rally racing with our latest project, the 987 Cayman S Rallye. This street-legal Cayman is destined to compete in the ARA 2WD open class. It's a refined version of the familiar 987, enhanced to navigate beyond paved roads, combining power and agility to master any terrain in its path.
