The jubilee 5th car was given the name Spitfire. It reflects experience of the old team, successfully handed to the successors. In addition to that, several new ideas were applied in the construction.

In the 2013 season, we decided to further reduce weight of the car and to improve driving performance. We accomplished both, thanks to semi-monocoque chassis and different approach to the suspension kinematics design based on real tire data. The CFRP monocoque was a big step forward. It has been developed since 2010 and only the 94th design was manufactured, after passing FEA stiffness and modal analysis. Weight of the chassis was reduced by 8kg.

Spitfire is our first car to obtain aero package consisting of front and rear two-element wing. Thanks to downforce of 500 N available at 64km/h, the maximum of 2,3 g lateral acceleration was achieved.

The brake system now uses lighter components and floating disc bearings. The entire wheel group has been completely redesigned and the possibilities of setting the suspension geometry and suspension parameters have been increased.
