At last year’s busy GBS Christmas Open Day Keith Barker placed his order with us for his GBS Zero Mazda Kit. Keith and his Wife Wendy owned their Mazda MX5 since new and it had been very well looked after, but now it has become the donor for their new Mazda based GBS Zero GT. Their GBS Zero Spec is Zero Mazda GT, Lowered Floor, Standard Roll Bar, GRP Dash and Sport Front Wings.

Today Keith and Wendy came to collect their GBS Zero Mazda Kit, normally the panels come separate to the chassis and are either Aluminium or Stainless Steel. But when Keith & Wendy ordered their GBS Zero Mazda kit they wanted their GBS Zero to be of the same colour as their original Mazda MX5. So we got their Zero GT Mazda chassis into production and the GBS workshop team prepared and fitted the bodywork panels, we had to source the colour code of the original Mazda MX5 green then it was taken to our paint shop where it was painted and it arrive back in our workshop early this week. The finished GBS Zero Mazda GT will also be registered as an age related vehicle and then they hope to get the original plates from the Mazda MX5 onto their Zero. We look forward to receiving photographs of their GBS Zero build as it progresses and see both Keith & Wendy at our GBS Weekend 6th & 7th June.

If any of you out there are looking for a GBS Zero and haven’t got the time to build a Zero… Then we have an opportunity that might interest you!  We are selling a GBS Zero GT on behalf of one of our customers who has been forced to sell his pride and joy due to starting another exciting project!

This 13 Plate GBS Zero is in excellent condition, it is a Ford Based GBS Zero GT Chassis with lowered floor, Cobra Hoops, Oxford Blue GRP and carbon effect wrap. March 2013 was the first date of registration, and the car has only completed 1200 miles from new. It is fitted with a 2.0Ltr Zetec engine on AT Power Direct to Head Throttle bodies and an Emerald K6 ECU producing around 180bhp & a Raceline lowline sump, a MT75 Speed Gearbox, Full Smiths Flight Gauges, Removable Momo Steering Wheel, Rear Diffuser, boot cover and Detachable doors.

Although the car has not been factory built it has been built to the highest standards only using parts supplied by GBS. Please see photographs and for more details and price please contact us on 01623 860990 or email us
