First DDR Motorsport GT Customer Kit Car
First DDR Motorsport GT customer car has been completed in England by its owner James (he wants to be a Ferret), and it looks amazing.
At first glance, you’d be excused if you mistake James’ DDR Motorsport Miami GT4 for a McLaren F1 GTR as it resembles the iconic British sports car.
The DDR is a sports car manufactured by DDR Motorsport Miami Inc. in Miami, FL, US. The design is mid-engined, rear wheel drive with a tubular chassis and fiberglass body.
James started his DDR Motorsport Miami GT4 build in 2013 and has very recently finished the project, however as you browse through his blog you will notice a great deal of preparation has gone into this successful Kit Car.
James’ DDR Motorsport Miami GT Kit Car videos show rolling chassis, walk around before the paint job and the near finished McLaren F1 inspired replica.
James’ DDR Motorsport Miami GT4 weighs a hair over 2,000 lbs and thanks to its 300bhp can achieve a stunning 4.2 seconds 0-60. James has told us that his current car can be upgraded to a V6 which would afford his handbuilt British-American supercar more power and speed.
He has been driving the car reliably for a while now, and we can only guess that he will continue to refine this amazing supercar.
