Description:

For sale is my Westfield Megablade. Originally built by AB Performance based on a 2005 chassis but modified at Westfield to AB Performance specifications. It was raced successfully in the early 750MC RGB series up to 2013/14. I acquired the car in 2016 and replaced the engine with a 2015 Blade SP unit sourced from AB Performance and prepared at the AB Performance workshop. Prior to the 2018 season the car underwent a full re-spray. I am currently the 5th owner of the vehicle and have enjoyed what I have done in the car, however, the car is not being utilised to its full potential at present and so it is time to pass it on to someone who will.

The car has been taken apart and put back together several times with various owners and I am no exception. It is a simple car to understand mechanically but has the power to weight ratio to embarras much more expensive machinery on track. The cornering ability is astonishing, and the acceleration is phenomenal. If you have never driven a bike engine car; then prepare to be amazed.

This is a well sorted race car which would not be able to be built for the asking price. Initially built by AB Performance; the last word in bike engine race cars, the car is completely track focussed and is not road registered.

I am open to any reasonable offer and may be able to deliver the car at the cost of the fuel (and maybe a coffee) to the buyer. The price has been lowered due to me working abroad next year and require the car to be sold. Grab yourself a bargin race car.

AB Performance are no longer in business however, parts are still available from MK Sportscars who took over AB Performance Brand.

More pictures can be made available upon request. Thanks for looking.
