Amazing New Norris Design Demo Car

The MLR were recently invited to Norris Designs for an exclusive preview of their new demo car. There will be a full write up including an in-depth interview with Simon Norris in the next edition of Wastegate Chatter out on 1st October, but here's a brief rundown of the car and some pictures as the final build nears completion.

Exactly what the new Norris Designs demo car is has been the subject of much speculation and Simon's kept it a closely guarded secret whilst creating what is the most unique Evo ever seen.

Believing that the only way Evo performance can take a big step forward is with drastic weight loss, Norris Designs have built an Evo that should weigh in at just 1080kg. With a power to weight ratio of nearly 800bhp per ton it's almost 300bhp per ton more powerful than the old Norris Design Evo 7 demo car!!

To build an Evo this light has meant the car has undergone some major weight loss and incredible engineering, including a substantial amount of the bodyshell being removed to make the car shorter and lower. In fact it is 10inches shorter and 3inches lower than a standard Evo 9 shell. With the shell customised this much, the rear doors have been removed creating the world's first Short Wheelbase 2-Door Evo....

ND Evo 9 SWB - Basic Spec List:

Power
841Hp & 635LbFt (Klotz 118 Race Fuel)
Target weight 1080Kg (Dry)
Target top speed: 215 Mph+
Target ¼ mile: Sub 9 seconds

Engine, Gearbox, ECU & Brakes
ND 2.3 litre stoker
Garrett GT42R roller bearing turbo
ND 4” WRC style custom exhaust system with side exit
Motec M800 Pro ECU
Holinger dog engagement straight cut gearkit
Ikeya sequential shifter with digital gear indicator
Brembo 8 pot metal matrix calipers front & rear

Body
Acid dipped custom 2 door short wheelbase low roof Evolution 9 shell
Custom T45 full weld in load bearing roll cage
Custom air jack tyre changing system

Interior/Exterior
Carbon everywhere!

Known about this beast a little while now sounded hell of a machine when Simon described it!

Look forward to seeing it in the flesh soon, looks a bit plain Si

Take me for a spin! droools



That green wont be everyones cuppa, but it'll certainly stand out!!

That green is one of Norris Designs corporate colours. The black isn't actually black in real life, it's unpainted carbon fibre.

The work that's gone into this car is incredible. The shell was cut into 3 parts and the height and length removed. The joins are totally seamless. The roof is totally carbon and there's a huge rear diffuser being fitted. A lot of the floor has been cut out and flattened as much as possible.

The roof was lowered to reduce drag and allow for higher top speeds .

The car has not just been built for drag racing, but also to go around corners.

I think this car could get into the 5 seconds for 30-130mph
