Get acquainted with: SHORTCUT from DB 527
ShortCut - our version of the sports car based on the legendary Lotus Seven. All over the world enthusiasts of motorsports and fans of sports cars know and love the silhouette of the most popular creation of Colin Chapman. It can be found in the performance of world-renowned companies working under the license of Lotus, small assembly companies that produce assembly kits, or in the form of garage gadgets created from improvised materials and spare parts.
We have collected all the best from the world experience of construction and sports operation of such cars and embodied in a safe, affordable, reliable and fast sports car.
“Anthony Colin Bruce Chapman
Adding power makes you faster on the straights. Subtracting weight makes you faster everywhere"
"Adding power makes you faster on the straights. Subtracting weight makes you faster everywhere" - this expression of Colin Chapman served us as a direct guide to action. Every detail or spare part of Shortcut at the design stage has been repeatedly questioned: Is it really needed on the car? If so, can it be smaller? Can it be made of lighter material? Can it perform additional functions of other parts? How much is the gain in weight comparable to the additional costs for its production?
As a result, we got a unique result - 495kg of curb weight with a car engine and safety cage. Yes, there are replicas with a lower weight, but usually they are equipped with motorcycle engines or do not have a safety cage for operation on the track.
Shortcut at the moment is a unique offering, combining high power-to-mass ratio, affordable price and safety.
Sir Colin Chapman would be pleased with us.
