Straggler from the Los Angeles Auto Show – GT Malan

December 27th, 2010

The GT Malan, “Your Custom Supercar.” Billed as the “World’s Most Affordable Supercar,” it is also highly customizable by the buyer. There are a variety of options, ranging from cosmetic to performance, for the body, exhaust, wheels, interior, engine and brakes.

Here are the specs on one possible configuration, including some of the options:

Engines

We use GM’s high performance LSx series engines. All available options include the LS1 350hp/365tq, LS2 400hp/400tq, LS3 430hp/424tq, LS6 405hp/400tq, LS7 505hp/470tq, and LS9 638hp,604tq. On the intake side we use custom piping attached to a velocity stack and an intake. The exhaust side uses a set of custom headers to specifically fit the GT Malan chassis topped off with a stainless steel exhaust.

Drivetrain

Drivetrain options are concurrent with power levels. For the base GT Malan, we use a G-50 transaxle that has a 3.44:1 limited slip differential, along with a 9.5″ single disc heavy duty clutch. The output shafts are custom made by Mendeola.

Suspension

On the base model GT Malan, for the front suspension, we use independent SLA forged aluminum upper and pressure-cast aluminum lower control arms; forged aluminum steering knuckle, spindle offset, and KONI one-piece coilover with ride height adjustment. In the rear, we use independent 5-link design with toe and camber adjustment, cast aluminum upper and lower control arms and knuckle, steel stabilizer bar and tie rods, and KONI one-piece coilovers with ride height adjustment.

Vehicle

The GT Malan has a mid-engine rear-wheel drive layout configuration. The weight distribution is 42% in the front, and 58% in the rear. The wheelbase of the car is 101in. and has 4.25in. of ground clearance in its stock form. Read the rest of this entry »
