Contera MD1 is a first fully road legal, born from a love of the Group C vehicles, Contera decided to design and build a mid-engine GT car with this styling and foot print in mind.
Defining the exterior of the MD1 is the Group C inspired teardrop shaped roof with wrap-around windscreen that resides in a curvaceous and attention grabbing body shell.
The MD1 has a wide stance and a dominating road presence and it's really obvious that the Group C DNA was a major factor in the designing process. With external dimensions and footprint of a Group C car, sweeping lines paired with the dihedral (butterfly) style doors, and it’s see through engine cover gives the exotic/supercar identity to the car.
This complete new car was designed from the start to be available to the international market as a three seater. The driver is positioned in the centre - the ultimate driving position.. In order for the driver to get the maximum vision and not lose the sports car senses, it was always going to be designed with the driver in the centre. With passengers seated either side and slightly behind the driver to create a spacious and comfortable interior. The central driving position is essential to get the best vision from the wrap around windscreen whose shape owes its style from the beautiful and purposeful Group C machinery.
This also creates the essential and positive effect to be really user-friendly in left hand or right hand drive countries.
Comes fully loaded with ABS, Speed Sensitive Power Steering, ,air con/heating system,Tilt adjustable steering column, digital dash, CD/MP3 player, reversing camera, electric windows, electric mirrors, central locking (all come as standard).
Powering the Contera MD1 is a 1JZ-GTE 2.5-litre twin turbocharged 6 inline Toyota/Yamaha engine that produces around 300bhp and 363 Nm (268 lb ft ) @ 4800rpm of torque, with the capability of 600-700bhp in upgraded version depending on the customer’s request.
The proportions of a car are crucial as after all, it is these figures that determine the feel of a car - good handling and perfect weight distribution are key ingredients when designing a great sports car.
The MD1 it's created to be a road legal sports car but was also designed with racing applications in mind.
