Chasing his dream of constructing beautiful performance vehicles for track car enthusiasts, chairman of Vandal Cars Jeremy Sutton has been working diligently for years to bring his dream to fruition. According to Sutton, his new Vandal One Track Car is the closest a motoring fanatic will get to sitting behind the wheel of an F1 vehicle without being a professional racer.
Although Vandal is new, the crew isn’t, as the company’s employees come from McLaren, Ford Racing, and Lola. The race track-focused vehicle packs a 2.0L turbo engine putting out 340 hp or 560 hp, depending on the package, and a Sadev six-speed full sequential transaxle with a paddle shift system. It also has an F1-style pushrod front and rear suspension complete with JRi adjustable racing dampers, custom spring rates, and anti-roll bars. The stunning vehicle has a pre-preg autoclave carbon fiber body and weighs in at 1,220 lb, leading to a power-to-weight ratio of 3.59 lbs per pony. In comparison, the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ has a power-to-weight ratio of 4.37 lbs per hp. The base model will start at $119,700 and requires a $1,000 refundable deposit.
