Aeromaster LMP replica Le Mans Racer

Aeromaster LMP replica Bentley race car

What is it? Why do you want it? Where can you get it? How much?
Replica Le Mans car looks great, so cheap Aero-master $16,250 (+ drivetrain)

Aeromaster, a kit car company based in Sofia, Bulgaria now offer a replica of the 2003 Le Mans race winning Bentley Speed 8 prototype race car. And while the Aeromaster LMP clearly wonít have anywhere near the performance of the Bentley, it is a fairly accurate replica from the outside. At the very least it should get you some attention on a trackday! It's also way, way cheaper than the real thing, which is out of the price range of just about everyone except for lottery winners and oil barons.

The Aeromaster LMP features a steel space frame chassis and fiberglass body. Aeromaster say the body panels are all designed to quickly and easily bolt on to the chassis. The body itself was designed using CAD software and is 80 percent accurate to the Bentley. Modifications were made to make it easier to build and maintain. The molds for the bodywork were made using large-scale CNC milling machines for millimetre perfect tolerances.

Sadly the drivetrain of the Aeromaster LMP isnít quite as impressive as that used in the Bentley Speed 8, which was fitted with an Audi-sourced 4.0 litre twin-turbocharged V8. The standard Aeromaster LMP is designed to accept the PRV (Peugeot, Renault, Volvo) V6 engine - oddly the same engine used in the DMC Delorean. However as it is a replica race car with a spaceframe chassis, getting more potent drivetrains to fit shouldn't be too much trouble for experienced builders or mechanics.
