  2. The Zolfe was created by Nic Strong, owner of Spatz Arlon, a Tier-one automobile industry supplier and with the assistance of other top engineering firms. Nic’s goal with Zolfe was to design, develop, and manufacture a light-weight sports coupe that rivals cars costing and weighing much more than the Zolfe GTC-4. Development of the Zolfe has been directed by Jez Coates, who was chief engineer for Caterham cars for the past 22 years. The Zolfe GTC-4 will break the traditional specialty car mold, by offering modern day features (air conditioning, stereo, etc.) in a purists performance car. A track days and street legal version will be offered with the same body and chassis (including an FIA approved roll cage) and will differ in a limited number of items, such as fuel cell, suspension, and engine output.

  5. Simpact provides specialized computer aided engineering and 3D digitization. Revised the design of Zolfe’s tubular space-frame chassis to allow fitment of a range of engines. Simpact’s computer model allows optimization of chassis structure, permitting proper gauge and diameter of every tube in the structure. Eliminates redundant tubes that offer no benefit to the chassis. Ensures maximum torsional stiffness, crash prediction, and improvement of crashworthiness of the chassis structure (includes a full FIA approved roll cage, proper placement of fuel tank, and collapsible steering column). Simpact has provided specialty design for companies such as McLaren, Lotus, Chevron, Caterham and Lola. The Role Of Simpact www.simpact.co.uk
