Meet the new Bailey Blade XTR
Perseverance pays off, for six years after the words now also follow the action. Presently developed by Bailey Blade XTR BXR Motors is more than just an ambitious computer drawing.
We are talking about the Bailey Blade XTR, the ferocious sports car that you as the intersection of a Mazda MX-5 and a Dodge Viper could look like. Or if the modern cousin of the AC Cobra. For the founder of BXR Motors, one Neal Bailey, lost but not the necessary funds for its turn ideas into reality.
After an almost deafening silence around the entire XTR project, sounding suddenly hopeful signs from the Bailey-camp. Coming November at the famous SEMA tuning show in the U.S. Las Vegas the thing would still make its appearance. No more computer drawings but a sports car of flesh and blood.
The XTR would carry a 5 liter V8 Ford origin, available with either compressor (550 hp) or biturbo (approx. 750 hp). The generous use of carbon fiber, the weight in the region of 1,200 kilograms must keep making the sprint from 0 to 100 km / h should take. No more than 3.5 seconds to complete A 45/55-gewichtsverdeling and active aerodynamics should ensure that the XTR not only shines on the drag strip, but also a rich trail should be able to turn out.
