Height: 39" (1 inch LESS than a Ford Gt-40!)
Clearance: 3" - 5"
Weight: 900-1400 lbs, depending on specification. Motorcycle engined Spyders in racing trim are at the low end, while heavy-engined road cars using the standard body and fully furnished interiors are closer to 1400lbs.
There are now several basic variations of the Fury body:
Fury - with doors and windshield
Fury Spyder - no doors and plexi windscreen
New - July 03 - Fury Spyder Special - Windshield and no doors
In addition there are two different front end options-
Classic hood - low front fenders with exposed headlights
LeMans hood - higher front fenders with plexi covered headlights
Almost any four-cylinder engine (including Ford Zetec, Toyota, Alfa, Fiat) has been used in the Fury, as well as some V6s and the lightweight Buick / Olds / Rover V8.
The Toyota 4AG 1.6L twin cam is a likely candidate for U.S. Furies, as it was widely available matched to a lightweight RWD 5-speed gearbox in mid-'80s Toyota Corollas. Newer, Japanese market versions of these engines are available and cheap from West Coast importers. The 4AG is an excellent basis for hot-rodding, with outputs of up to 220HP @ 10,000RPM achievable. Even higher power levels are possible with forced induction, using OEM parts from the supercharged MR2.
High performance motorcycle drivetrains are a natural fit in the Fury. A bike engined version can weigh as little as 900 lbs, giving a stunning power to weight ratio and sub-four second 0-60 acceleration. Engine mounts for Suzuki Hayabusa, Kawasaki Z-9, and Honda Firblade and Blackbird are available. An additional advantage of the Bike engines is the attached close ratio, sequential six speed gearbox perfectly matched to the powerband. It's a hard combination to beat if pure performance is your goal.
