Kevin bought the original Beattie Clubman project in 1999 and started a company called Redline Performance Cars (RPC). Development on the Beattie has continued and is now known as the Redline Sprint II. The car has a redesigned front suspension geometry and independent rear suspension. The motor (A Toyota Altessa) has been moved further back in the chassis to achieve a 52% rear weight bias.
Originally based on the late 50's early 60's sports race concept the car is still predominantly raced. There is another model which is the more refined road going version which includes doors and a more functional aero screen. This car is called the "Roadsprint". As much of the build as possible is done in house to maintain control of quality and finish. Exceptions being the composite moulding, final paint finish and upholstery. The top half of the bodies are made of hand laid fibreglass, colour impregnated. With the bottom half from aluminium sheet. The cars can be purchased in various levels of component packages right up to the turn key product.
