British Sports Car Devon Based Company Avatar unveils The 250BHP Roadster

We met up with Terry Matthews  And spoke about the car and we have to say WOW’

The 250bhp Sports car is something else from the eye to the performance it gives out on the open road. Terry gave me some of the history behind the company, and where it is today, which is based in the South West Devon…

Terry & partner Mark who lost his life to Cancer over a year ago has worked very hard in producing this prototype, and after dealing with such news, Mark would be very proud in what Terry has done with the team around her.

With the car only being 695kg the Roadster has a few nice little toys such as Rota Wheels who we support in the making of the wheels in photos we produce for social media and website. Ford Eco-Boost Engine,Nitron Dampers,Heated Screen,Apple Car-Play, Roof Heater & Air Conditioning

With Budget and demands of the car, it’s been a few stressfull months of mods that needed to be done but eventually it’s been completed and now ready for orders for customers.

We will be visiting the company soon to have a personnal tour and a shoot with the Avatar Roadster 250 in all her glory…

Alongside the 2.0 turbocharged Ecoboost engine, Avatar is also offering a 2.3l 350bhp option that sees 0-60 times cut to just 3.6 seconds with the Ford Focus RS-engined derivative using a six-speed transaxle. Drivers seeking a more frenetic shifting experience can opt for a paddle-shift operated seven-speed sequential Quaife gearbox.

Avatar Sports Car Company LogoCompany founder Terry Matthews has years of experience in customer service and thrives in giving the customers an experience of a life time with meeting the customers requirments.

We looked over the car in more detail, and the bodywork to the stitching inside and the gear stick to flooring is of high standards. This is not only a roadcar though, which is why we are really keen on doing doing alot with this car in 2017.

There is an option for a pure track heart throb experience in having a car with a fully fitted roll cage fitted extinguisher, foam-filled tank, data logger, GoPro HD Camera Kit, Rear Wing and LSD. “With these additions you could have a fully fledge Race Spec car in no time and still be a road legal car!!!

  We spoke with Terry Matthew’s

“We produce and set up every car so the way it performs and handles meets each individual’s requirements,” says Matthews, Avatar founder and Marlin Sports Cars director. “We will create the car around the customer so they feel that it fits them perfectly, like a glove. Maybe they prefer stiffer suspension, a slightly higher ride height is needed to cope with an awkward driveway or the customer has a very specific color or trim design in mind for the leather interior. We offer a bespoke service where the only real limit is imagination.”

Avatar’s sister company Marlin is manufacturing the production models, of which no more than 50 will be built. “All that has been learned from Marlin’s long-standing history is being passed on and incorporated into Avatar – it’s an extremely exciting project for us,” adds Matthews.

Production begins in spring 2017 and prices start at £39,990.
