EM Motors exhibiting at Carlisle Import/Kit-Replicar Nationals May 16-18
Interested in seeing what is new in the Replicar market? Looking for excitement and affordability all in one sports car? Visit EM Motors at the Carlisle Import/Kit-Replicar Nationals to experience the EM578 Performance Component Vehicle in person.
The EM 578 sports car is designed to take you out on the road with the styling and performance of the great LeMans racers of yesteryear, but with all the advantages of modern technology, componentry and reliability. Each EM578 performance component vehicle is painstakingly hand crafted to your specifications with the highest degree of attention to detail and pride of assembly. The EM578, simply put, is a street legal race car. Designed to capture the bygone era of the LeMans and Can-Am greats, the EM578 brings the feeling of all out endurance racing to your garage! Now, you can go for a drive and feel like you're on the Mulsane straight! The EM578 is a 2 seat, mid-engine, nimble, exhilarating sports car. Once you climb into the driver's seat you're met with a new and exiting driving experience. Press the engine start button, and just behind you the car roars to life. Designed to accept a standard Chevrolet small block V8 engine coupled to a Porsche 930/4 transaxle, the horsepower is only limited by your imagination!
Available as a completed rolling chassis or a turnkey package, the EM578's standard equipment includes a hand laid fiberglass body finished with DuPont Chromabase basecoat / clearcoat paint system, 4 wheel unequal length double wishbone suspension, 4 wheel vented disc brakes, twin brake master cylinders with adjustable bias, a complete hydraulic clutch system, Carrera adjustable coilover shock absorbers, Porsche 930 CV joints with Empi racing axles, 1 1/2" diameter adjustable sway bars, rack and pinion steering with a tiltable column, a fully upholstered interior with VDO instruments installed, a 15.5 gallon safety fuel cell with twin monza style filler caps, a full compliment of DOT approved lights with a fully labeled and coded wiring harness, a competition Schoenfeld exhaust header set with Flowmaster muffler and much, much more.
The EM578 performance component vehicle uses a jig welded GT style tubular chassis. The perimeter space frame chassis design allows for maximum rigidity, strength and safety while at the same time minimizing weight. The ultimate goal for the chassis design was to create a stable and responsive car. With this goal accomplished, the fun and exhilaration of driving the EM578 comes automatically!
The complete EM578 full rolling chassis includes an assembled and fully tested chassis, an assembled body set finished in choice of solid basecoat/clearcoat paint system, buffed and waxed. The EM578 comes fully plumbed and wired, ready for engine and transaxle installation.
At $34,500.00, the complete rolling chassis is ready to receive your engine and transmission assembly. Turnkeys start at a very affordable $40,800.00. Everything necessary to complete your car is included.
