Round tube space frame design that combines a 60's period look, but conforms to modern packaging and engineering requirements. The chasis layout was originally done by Jim Price himself, and then later optimized by the late Bob Negsted and Dan Bamford (of Roush engineering) with the finite element analysis by Wes Shultz of ACT. The torsional stiffness of the chassis alone is in order of 6,000 lbs per degree!
The Coupe is designed to take a Ford 351 Windsor engine that can be stroked to 427 cu in. The chassis was engineered for a six speed Tremac T56 transmission. The Coupe is fitted with a 3.46:1 BTR Hydratrack differential, arguably the most modern slip-controlled differential available for road cars today. Roush Technolgies developed the Roush 402 RC engine for the Beta and Gamma prototypes (Alpha prototype competed in the 2000 One Lap of America with an Olthoff-developed engine). The RC develops 501 bhp at 5,900 rpm and 580 ft/lbs of torque at 4,900 rpm, giving the prototype amazing performance figures: 0-60 mph in 3.8 seconds, the standing quarter mile in 11.5 sec and a top speed in excess of 200 mph.

With shape and form styled by Peter Brock, the composite body is completely new, with advanced aerodynamics.

The front windscreen is a heated and tinted shatterproof unit, the manually operated wind-up side windows are of toughened glasss. The luxurious two-seater leather-trimmed interior is air conditioned, three-point retractable seat belts are standard. Modern Stewart Warner instruments. These and the standard controls are ergonmically laid out. The cockpit, which offers 35.75" headroom and 4" seat travel, features a full custom-made air conditioner with heating and cooling as well as multi-speed fans and directional control.

The dash has a lockable glovebox and space for a radio. A remote immobilzer and remote keyless locks and door opening are standard. A roll bar, a black padded roof liner and a 14"Moto Lita steering wheel complete the all-black interior.
Bob Negstad together with Don and Wes designed the fully independent suspension. The rear suspension is based on the work Bob and Klaus Arning did in the 60's, a truly unique and impressive unequal A arm design front and rear. All the computer simulations were done by Wes using industry standard ANSYS software.
