The New Generation NZV8
A document produced in 2012...
Welcome to the NEW GENERATION car to contest Motorsport New Zealand's Goldstar V8 Championship.
All new cars in the category are manufactured using the same tubular frame construction, so that only the outer body panels will define the chosen manufacturer - Ford or Holden. The possibilities are endless.
What about a Japanese 'brand'? A Toyota or a Nissan? Perhaps even a Mercedes Benz body shape? This new chassis is future-proofed and will accommodate a wide range of body panel options.
Competing in the new generation NZV8 category means racing in the most successful saloon car category in New Zealand.
What started as production based car racing then developed into the hugely successful NZV8s, and is now poised to enter a new era of true race car technology and tubular frame construction. Over the years the racing has evolved from modified saloons to the all-new purpose built NZV8 race cars!
