about zolfe
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.
