Me at the Nurburgring, March 2011

The Fury for me represents the ideal compromise between an all out race car, and a car you can still get in and nip out for a pint of milk. In 2010, I found myself with the time and desire to build another car. I use the seven a lot, but i tended to use it when the weather was perfect, and I had lots of time. I wanted a car that I could just get in and go, this meant the need for a windscreen, and a hood, and possibly even a heater. On the other side of the equation was the need for a car that was light and agile. This meant not compromising on weight, and endlessly looking for the lightest, most minimal solution.

The end result is a car that I used all year round, in the rain, in the sun, and in the snow. The car has a heater, (although I’m likely to remove it as its warm enough as it is.) a windscreen, but weighs under 500kg, and has 360BHP/Ton.
