FIA Fastback

Chassis No 002

The FIA Fastback was designed as a "gentleman's racer" and is heavily inspired by the amazing Shelby FIA Cobras that raced in Europe.

We start with an original, clean California car, strip it down to bare metal and rebuild it to your specs. The only aftermarket panels used are our own lightweight carbon parts.

Our demo car is powered by a 500hp, 364ci lightweight aluminum small block Shelby motor backed by a TKX 5-speed. 3.5" side pipes call back to that instantly recognizable Trans Am era race car sound.

Beautiful hand shaped fender flares widen the car by five inches, covering rear centerlock Shelby wheels at all four corners that are wrapped in 275 and 295/50/15 series Avon radial tires.

Weighing under 3000 lbs, our 67/68 Mustangs definitely qualify as lightweights but that doesn't mean we skimp on the details and craftsmanship. An optional full size race spare is stored under the back glass, made accessible by removable "floating" head rests. The horn button is from a vintage arcade machine, a nod to Chris's career as a video game designer and the beautiful pistol grip shifter and ebrake lever is hand made by a knife maker.

The car drives like a dream. Comfortable, simple, fast and smooth. It's what we all hope for in a classic car, but never got until now.
