Fierce Wildcat ready to pounce

2012-01-24 09:41

The all-new TDv6 Diesel Wildcat, which enjoyed its worldwide launch at the 2012 Autosport International show, is being prepared for its first race in March, 2012.

Manufactured by Qt Services, this Wildcat is the latest addition to the company’s range of extreme off-road racers.

The Wildcat is powered by a 3.0-litre twin turbo engine sourced from the Land Rover Discovery 4 and Qt Services claims to be the first to integrate the new powerplant into a race car.

WILD POWER

Qt’s MD Dave Marsh said: “This new engine has exceeded our expectations. Delivering 236kW and 696Nm of torque it produces more than enough power to deal with the toughest off road conditions in the world”.

With a little help from electronics and transmission specialists, Qt is looking forward to racing two of the new cars in the Tuareg Rally, starting March 2012, in Spain.
