Suspension and Braking

   No matter how powerful or what type of engine you hang onto the rear of a VW Speedster the heavy rear weight bias creates some real driving and braking challenges that even the pros find daunting.  Throw in a little inexperience, wet weather or sandy conditions and you may have a problem.

Take a look

The answer to those challenges is a mid-engine configuration just like Ferrari, Maserati, Jaguar, Lamborghini, Lotus use and even Porsche finally admitted with their 550 Spyder, 914, Boxster, and Cayman

You can now join that elite group with our lineup of 356A replicas.
