Racing car manufacturer Zeus Motorsport has designed this SS.200 model as part of its ongoing development programme. The car will first race in the Supersports 200 series (a few rungs down the ladder from Formula One) at the end of the month. Zeus design and engineering director Peter Sneller says it has a tubular aluminium chassis to make it as light as possible – the minimum total weight for a car in the series is 580 kilos and so a lighter vehicle allows a heavier person to drive it. FM Design was brought in to generate the 3D CAD model (above) and to help place the body’s various logos. FM Design and Zeus’s Silverstone factory are now working together on developing the car for other series.
