JConcepts 190mm touring car body shell – First images

Spotted on the car of Serpent’s Felix Law at the latest round of the CETC at RCI V2 in Shanghai is a 190mm touring car body shell from JConcepts. Still in development it is exciting to see that the off-road specialist is entering the on-road market with a somewhat unique looking shell that features a very characteristic front section that is significantly longer compared to current bodies. The idea behind the design is to do away with the need for extremely forward mounted bodies, which is done to gain further steering emphasis, keeping the overall appearance intact and the wheel houses where they belong. Nevertheless Felix’ prototype body still is being mounted a tad forward here in Shanghai as you can see from our images. Other design elements include a very pronounced grill section, ribbing in front of the windscreen for improved stability as well as an anti-tuck rear bumper section. We are not allowed to do close up photos but we bring you more information on the project’s development as soon as they surface.
