Post Westfield to re-launch GTM
Just seen this on another forum, apparently from Total Kit Car:

WESTFIELD TO RE-LAUNCH GTM IN 2018 …
Several years after they withdrew the GTM Libra and Spyder projects from sale, Westfield Sports Cars are planning to bring back heavily-revised versions in 2018 under the Westfield-GTM model name.

Visually the cars will still be familiar albeit with a few styling amendments but it’s under the skin where the big changes are coming. Out goes the monocoque tub, front and rear subframes and trailing arm suspension at the rear to be replaced by a spaceframe chassis and wishbone suspension, while engine choices will be Ford EcoBoost 2-litre, a hybrid and also full electric.

We’ll bring you more details as we have them although we do know that fully built prices will start at around £30,000 with kit packages also available although prices have yet to be announced

Good they’re doing something with the brand but a shame it won’t be a proper GTM.

Clearly, there’s an awful lot for us to catch up on. The mid-engined sports car will be badged Westfield GTM, taking its name from the 50-year-old independent British firm previously acquired by Westfield


:D

Despite feeling sad that Westfield doesn't continue the GRP monocoque technique, I am quite interested to see with what for kerb weight and stiffness they come up with. When a demonstrator is available, I hope CKC does a back to back test with an original Libra.
