A month ago Shepherd released the “Nineteen” conversion kit for the Velox V10 touring car and today announced the full Nineteen specification car kit.
The Shepherd Velox V10 ‘Nineteen’ is the latest development of the V10 platform and has already proven its capabilities by taking the third place with a pre-production version at the recent IFMAR 200mm Worlds in Miami, Florida is the hands of Edu Escandón.
This new touring car features a new rear axle geometry, which makes the model more controllable when braking even under difficult track conditions or when hard braking is required. This was achieved by a wider rear lower wishbone distance and an updated upper wishbone mount with optimized upper camber link positions.
The updated lower wishbone mounts are manufactured from high-quaility 7075 T6 aluminum and come with blue or black anodizing while the upper wishbone mounts are milled from high-quality German carbon fiber material.
The lower wishbones have been completely redesigned to match the updated geometry and are molded from high quality plastics. The rear stabilizer linkage is located slightly more to the outside of the wishbone for improved responsiveness and softer steering.
Furthermore, the 7075 T6 aluminum chassis of this new touring car bends significantly less, even under heavy loads, which significantly increases its durability. An improved exhaust pipe holder makes the use of different pipe/manifold combinations of all manufacturers significantly easier and more comfortable.
The Shepherd Velox V10 ‘Nineteen’ will be ready in a few days!
