The Almac Sabre is a two seat, two door convertible, with individual styling and bags of performance. It has been designed as a complete sports car, with all the classic ingredients, low, set back driving position, a powerful motor driving the rear wheels and independent suspension all round.

Body. The body is manufactured in glass reinforced polyester resin with the addition of coremat, Kevlar and carbon fibre to give extra strength and stiffness where required.

The floors and bulkheads are bonded to the outer shell while it is still in the mould. This ensures accuracy when fitting the body to the chassis. A steel frame is fitted around the windscreen and then down to the chassis in front of the door, the door hinges are fitted to this. Another steel frame surrounds the rear of the cockpit, attached to this frame are the door latches and the boot hinges. Bonnet, boot lid and doors are all double skinned with side intrusion beams in the doors, headlight pods are bonded in and the body is completed with detachable front and rear bumpers.

Suspension: Suspension is independent all round.

The front is by top and bottom wishbones with adjustable coil over shocks, anti roll bar.

The rear suspension is by lower transverse wishbones with drive shafts acting as upper links, twin adjustable coil over shocks.

Steering: Steering is by power assisted rack and pinion

Brakes: Front:   284mm dia. with 4 piston callipers

Rear:    263mm dia. with 2 piston callipers

Engine and gearbox: First choice for the engine is the Lexus 4litre V8 shown here with the with manual box, though an auto can also be fitted, this engine gives 250 hp upwards and is front mounted behind the axle line and drives through the rear wheels.

 




    
             
 
 

 

 

 

 

 

In developing this sports car, Almac has worked hard on producing a quality kit in a series of self contained packages. With the Sabre available as a turnkey car, we also appreciate many enthusiasts take great pleasure in personally assembling parts of their car, with this in mind we have embodied a basic layout that allows it to be offered in easily assembled component packages.


 

 

 

 

Chassis: A multi tubular steel space-frame backbone chassis with outriggers set to the width of the car. Fully bracketed for all suspension points, engine and gearbox mounts, seat belts, roll bar and body fixing mounts.



The Sabre is equipped with full weather protection with detachable roof panels and fold down rear header. A comprehensive heating and ventilation system is fitted.
