SPARTAN - Le Mans Coupes
Wakefield Racing

THE PUREST DRIVING EXPERIENCE.

With a passion for perfection, twin brothers Nick and Peter Pap have designed and built a supercar with a voluptuous body to rival a Ferrari and performance to surpass most supercars. Their dedication has seen them develop one of the quickest and lightest track cars in the world today, the Spartan.

The Spartan has been born and bred as a true roadster with no roof, no doors and just a small speedster-style windscreen. The car has been designed with a laser focus…to be quick, fun and offer the driver a huge adrenalin rush.

The aesthetic design of the Spartan is based on 60’s race cars with a modern retro look and styling that is raw and minimalistic – spartan. Carbon-fibre body panels with quick-release fasteners, fully adjustable active racing shock absorbers and exposed suspension components reinforce the aggressive form and function of the car. The chassis is not only lightweight but extremely tough with its tubular spaceframe design providing superior stiffness. The Honda 2.4 litre engine is at the heart and soul of this very special car.

With its super-lightweight construction, low centre of gravity and spectacular braking, the Spartan makes for one hell of an engaging drive. There are no driver aids – it’s like a big go-kart with driver involvement paramount. You feel the grip through the seat and every ridge and nuance through your fingertips. That coupled with its amazing mechanical grip makes for the most pure and thrilling driving experience imaginable.

The Spartan will be limited to just 300 units.

THE SPARTAN ENGINEERING & MORE

The Spartan is powered by a Honda 2.4 litre engine and offers spectacular braking and cornering levels you would normally only experience in formula vehicles. Thanks to its light weight and power, the performance of the Spartan outstrips that of super-sport cars with many times the power, cost and maintenance.

The Spartan will deliver a pure driving experience – an unfiltered adventure aided by no roof or doors and only a bike-inspired windscreen leaving you completely immersed with your surroundings. The Spartan experience is as close to driving a formula car as you will ever get.

The ambition is for the Spartan to be affordable, lightweight, easily maintainable, and perform to the highest standards by using the best quality components in combination with clever and innovative engineering. The Spartan is built to a standard and not a price, period.

The suspension is designed, engineered and tested to allow for a ride that is supple, predictable and confidence inspiring right up to the limit and deliver great feedback to the driver, a testament to development driver Barton Mawer.

The damper kit is a Tractive Suspension ACE Kit. This kit is a stand-alone damper kit that wires into the supplied TracTive Control Unit (TCU) mounted in the centre of the car. The TCU is a G-Force sensor that is constantly sending the dampers information about the attitude of the car. They can completely soften the ride over ripple strips yet stiffen up in an instant as the car builds G-Force. Think of them as a 4-way shock that can be programmed to react to your driving style through a touch screen with 5 memory settings. Using these memory settings, the driver is effectively dictating the stiffness range that the dampers are permitted to work in. As the car enters a corner and builds G-force the dampers will stiffen. If for some reason the G-signature of the car drops, ie. there is slip, the dampers will soften to assist in re-establishing grip. TracTive’s patented valve can move from full hard to full soft in 6-10 milliseconds.

The downforce of the Spartan at 200km/h and 250km/h is 299kg and 467kg respectively thanks to it’s front splitter, rear diffuser and wing. CFD development has been undertaken to maximise the aerodynamic potential of the underbody of the vehicle without compromising the mechanical nature of the vehicle. The aerodynamic balance of the vehicle has been designed to ensure that it compliments the weight distribution of the vehicle and to provide excellent high speed cornering adjustability to accommodate all driver’s preferences. By altering a combination of front ride height, rear wing position (5 setting) and rear wing gurney orientation it is possible to achieve a highly dynamic aero balance of 48% down to a more stable and forgiving value of 32%. This adjustability will also ensure that the vehicle is desirable to drive at high speed circuits independent of the weather or track conditions.

Safety is of paramount importance to Spartan Motor Company – a safety cell incorporated into the design exceeds current CAMS/FIA safety standards. Complementing the world-class chassis are many CNC machined billet suspension and chassis components. All parts on the Spartan are carefully selected with quality and safety in mind.

The Spartan’s hand-crafted carbon fibre body, weighing less than 20kg, is a testament to the degree to which Spartan Motor Company will pursue to decrease the weight to achieve the highest performance attainable. A painted fiberglass body will be available on the base model.

A unique feature to the Spartan is its ambidextrous driving configuration, the foot pedal unit and steering column are interchangeable from right to left-hand drive.

The combination of quality products, innovative engineering and lightweight materials contribute to the unrivalled chassis balance. Additionally, they result in lower running costs for the short and long term future ownership of the customer.

The Spartan will be road legal in the UK – available with light package, handbrake and lift kit.

The emotion of driving a GT40 on an iconic racetrack is hard to beat. But the thrill on the road is equally evocative. Driving this 1960s icon home after @motorsportdays in the rain at night was in stark contrast to the running on Friday on a dry Silverstone track yet still a thrill in its own right. The simplicity of the cockpit only giving you the information you need to know while looking out over the sculpted front arches makes you feel like you’re about to take on Le Mans. The eager rumble of the V8 over your shoulder motivates you to play with the throttle as intended! A great car and a real event each time it is driven.

There is simple no words that can describe driving iconic cars on the public roads

Oliver, I remember you taking me around Donington in the ‘Braun’ coloured GT40, & Nigel taking Gerry Bagshaw, I thought that Cobras were fun, but the GT40 is another level! 😎😎😎

Love to see an onboard video if there's any. 😊

I can't afford one but I'd like to have a go 😂

What a stunning bit of kit , chassis set up by pressing a button. Absolutely stunning even quick with a old racer in the wet 😂

Looking forwards to seeing this on track and Road
