The updated Westfield Sport
All the exciting news from the factory as we develop what will be the most complete Westfield to hit the road!
Why are we continuing to develop the Westfield Sport?
Westfield have always built a market leading kit-car. For 30 years the Sport has been developed and perfected not only by the factory, but by the army of enthusiastic owners and supporting companies world-wide.
Legislation has pushed major manufacturers down a very specific development route for their drivetrains, making them heavy, low revving and very complex. None of these attributes work well in a stripped back sports car that weighs less than 750kgs.
We have just a few goals for the Sport's re-design. Keep it light, with an engaging, sonorous engine and improve the quality and finish of our car so it is truly market leading.
