British engineering company Tour De Force has revealed its TDF-1 track car. Comprising a 2011 Marussia or 2012 Sauber chassis, suspension and associated mechanicals, the private racer will generate 600bhp at 9,000rpm.

Engineered and developed by ex-F1 engineers, the TDF-1 is equipped with a 1730cc turbocharged four-cylinder mated to a 6-speed semi-automatic gearbox.

Matt Faulks, director of TDF, said, “With TDF-1, we wanted to create a package that allows driving enthusiasts the ability to have a genuine F1 experience that is more accessible and cost-effective.”
