So myself and Quinborders just acquired the carbon fiber skin of the 2009-2012 K-Pax Volvo S60 Race cars driven by Randy Pobst/Andy Pilgrim in the World Challange GT Class for 4 Years and won the 2010 season including Manufacture Award of the year.

We are attempting to reconstruct a visual replication of this car with suspension/drivetrain mods not quite to the standards of the race car version but ours will be street legal.

We begin with a stock 2004 S60R with 250k miles with an M66 Transmission.





and here we are going with it...


this will be a several month project so check in and we'll have updates...

Best of luck with this! These cars look great with a wide-body layout. May I ask what you paid for the panels?

Can't wait to see this finished!

If that's a silver metallic R I'd buy the hood/front bumper if you were interested in selling.

Wait, does this mean you're going to re-create these panels for sale?

Please do NOT do that wing.
Just too big for the street unless you plan on 500 hp!

I can't disclose the cost of the panels. Not planning to reduplicate them, too labor intensive and expensive.

Got a TD05 20G turbo to go on it...http://www.ardideas.com/ARD-TD05-20G_p_227.html, got a local tuner, JZWtuning.com to tune it.

I was thinking this spoiler...http://www.ebay.com/itm/GT-55-LIGHT...Parts_Accessories&hash=item2c6ef24095&vxp=mtr

JJ

We are going to try to acquire the CF dash if possible...

The car needs lots of mechanical repairs, bought it for only $1k -Timing belt, water pump, full suspension, clutch, etc...

We are going to try to do this as cheap as possible, budget race car!

Quin will post some wheel options we are think of..

We are looking all of you guys/gals to please give feedback and ideas to complete this project :)

If you have someone come out here and make molds of them that would be fine, so long as we get a full spare set of spare body panels in case something were to happen.

Basically this cars goal is to be what Volvo should have made the S60R to compete with M3 and RS4s, widebody and 500 hp. And still be sexy.

I like this. I recommend you ship it to Sweden after she's done and drive it up to Volvo headquarters, let them know what an R is

Please no. That's Chinese crap and will do nothing but look tacky. You went all out on body, don't skimp out on the wing. Do some research in aero. If you look at GT wings, they're all more or less the same. For a reason. Put some work into it.
He did say "JJ" which I believe means "Just Joking". I would hope he's got better taste than some aluminum ebay crap, haha.

I think www.aprperformance.com would provide a nice wing with excellent results.
