    Okay All.

    Here are some photos of the "Vanquish Body Kit"

    THESE ARE ONLY THE JIG'S That have been used to make the production molds and NOT THE FINAL PRODUCT. They have been painted and clear coated to protect them. So you can see what they will look like on the car.

    The Rear qurater panels will require a skilled bodyman to install, due to cutting and removing of the orig quarter panels

    The Kit will include:
    (Kit is for off road use only)(Fiberglass)
    1 Front Bumper
    Left and Right Fenders
    Left and Right side Rocker panels
    Left and Right side Quarter panels and rear Door Pieces
    1 Rear Bumper
    ( Parts will be primed and ready to paint )(each kit will have it's own serial number)

    The price for the kit is $4000.00
    (Does not include shipping charges)

    (Not included in the kit)
    The Heat Extractor hood will be $900.00
    The Front Splitter (not shown) will also be optional
    The Rear Wing (not shown) is also optional

    If you are interested in purchasing one of these kits Please "PM" (private message) me to discuss details

    (THE PHOTOS AND DESIGNS ARE THE PROPERTY OF "R&D Motorsports" and not to be used by any other party unless written consent is granted)

    THANK YOU FOR ALL OF YOUR INTEREST!!

    updates will follow on the final completion of this kit.



    And Yes we are looking into "Carbon Fiber"

    That rear is just begging for a properly fit diffuser. I think the rear bumper, particularly near the rear wheel, could come down a bit more so that it's more in line with the lower body level forward of that point.

    How much are you looking at for everything in carbon fiber?

    Being that the rear quarter panel is part of the uni-body, how does replacing that steel panel with fiberglass affect the uni-body's structural integrity/stiffness? Is it just joined with bondo? How would carbon fiber be structurally bonded to the steel uni-body?

    Looking forward to seeing it put together with all of the trim pieces and final details in place.

    The rear diffuser is something we have looked at, but we are going to wait untill we see what it does on the track. We did have one version of the rear bumper lower than it is now but it made the car look like a spaceship.

    No pricing in Carbon Fiber yet, it really is going to depend on the demand for it. But we are looking into it


    The main stucture of the quarter is still there. it is just the skin that gets replaced.

    That looks awesome. I know how much effort it take to do that much quality body work. What size tires will you be able to run?

    Hey zzilla, just a heads up. its a rule here that you have to be vendor in order to sell.

    Looks like its coming along real nice though. It looks mean. I'd like to see the full finished product.
