Ascari KZ1 is Back
Back by popular demand is the stunning Ascari KZ1, which was a real hit with visitors at Father's Day Supercar Sunday earlier this year. The Oxfordshire manufacturers have kindly agreed to loan the car for display in the museum for the next few months.
This is one of the most exclusive and coveted cars in the world; only 50 will be created, priced at £235,000 each. The KZ1 takes 340 hours to handcraft by 30 specialist engineers with expertise in Formula 1 and Touring Cars.
The carbon-fibre monocoque chassis and body shell weighs 1,330kg and is powered by a V8 engine tuned to deliver 500bhp, combined with power to weight ratio of 376bhp per tonne, enabling the KZ1 to achieve 60mph in just 3.7 seconds and an exhilarating top speed of 200mph.
The KZ1 goes on public display in the museum from today. The museum is open daily (except 24-26 December) from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Each weekend there are a variety of outdoor activities for all the family including go-kart racing, children's roadway and 4x4 off-road rides. Museum entrance fees are £8 adults; £7 concessions; £6 children (5-16 years); under fives FREE. The Heritage Motor Centre is situated in the Midlands, close to Junction 12 of the M40 between Warwick and Banbury.
