P1010009 (6)

One of the more unassuming entries at the world time attack challenge is the DMW motorsport entry in the Open class. Whilst this may look like the garden variety Suzuki Swift Sport the reality is this car is a long from what it appears as a quick peak under the bonnet will reveal. You see this baby is now powered by a 4G63 Mitsubishi Evolution 6 engine with forged internals and a turbocharger setup rumoured to be capable of in excess of 550hp.

Only the best components have been used in the build with a Motec ECU and suspension by Murray Coote (MCA).Drive train components are completely all Evo with a custom rear cradle being fabricated to house a Rs type rear diff, standard length Evo 6 driveshaft’s have been utilized as the track of the Swift sport and Evo 6 are almost identical, total wheelbase is less than 100mm shorter than Evo 6.

And the big advantage this little car will have is weight, or more precisely  the lack of it tipping the scales at 1075kg wringing wet! This car has been a labour of love for the DMW motorsport crew over the past few years. One thing for sure this is one little car to keep your eye on!
