The 2015 SEMA Show is almost here, so as a build up to the show, we will be releasing a news item or surprise every day until the show starts.
T-Minus 8 Days: Production 818C!
Today, it is only eight days before SEMA, and one of the things we will be showing off is our production version of our new 818C Sports Car. The 818C that we are taking to SEMA was painted Factory Five-Sherwin Williams official color “Sinister Black” (Sherwin Williams paint code FACFIVE1) by Carl’s Collision Center. The car features all current in-production parts. The new nose insert has been released and is in production. The car features a 265 hp WRX turbo engine with a 6-speed STi transmission with optional Factory Five aluminum shifter. It has Factory Five’s optional Wilwood brakes and Factory Five wheels with Toyo R888 tires. The car is en route to SEMA, and will also be shown at the Florida Emerald Coast Cruizin the week after SEMA.
Tooling is complete, and production has begun on the 818C. We are waiting for production glass, but it has been released and we are simply waiting for the inventory to arrive. 818C kits are shipping, and the production schedule is mostly filled through the end of the year.
