Gardner Douglas T70moda
Gardner Douglas Sports Cars Ltd. is proud to announce the introduction of the GD T70moda. The well-established GD T70, a car which can boast to be within the top 50 fastest laps of the Nurburgring, has been given an all-weather beating, beautifully designed panoramic canopy along with other subtle styling revisions for 2012. The GD T70moda canopy was designed using the latest Computer Aided Design software; their in-house design team worked meticulously to sculpt the curves and perfect every detail.Continuing the modern design approach, a state-of-the-art 5-axis milling machine carved high density modeling foam to the exact shape. Gardner Douglas are known for their outstanding GRP work and this latest project is no exception. The finished product uses a combination of GRP structures and pressure-formed polycarbonate, the latter chosen for its strength, clarity and scratch resistance.
The canopy system is comprised of a tail screen with integrated high-level brake light, rear bulkhead partition, roll-bar support, gullwing doors and T-bar connecting piece. This uniquely engineered solution allows the owner to use all or any of these components in which ever configuration they choose. With the full system in place, the T70moda can be used in all-weather conditions whilst providing the iconic body a coupe profile. The original doors are complimented by a pair of gull-wing windows which can be locked in position for security. These can be fully removed turning the car in to a targa-top, bringing the elements closer, along with the sensual excitement of wind in your hair. Complete removal of the roof is quick and easy and leaves very little trace behind should you wish to give your car the classic open-racer appearance. As an added comfort measure the upper most areas of the gull-wing windows and tail screen are tinted, providing vital shade and helps to visually lower the roofline giving a sleeker profile. A fully functional air intake guides much needed air through to the engine bay whilst adding a unique aesthetic touch which further boosts the GD T70moda’s desirability.
