Coming to America

The first left hand drive Mirage GT assembled for the US market recently arrived safe and sound at it’s new home in beautiful Florida.

The kit and all its parts apart from the engine and transmission were carefully packed here in the UK and shipped in a container just before the COVID-19 lock down began back in March.

The team worked hard to put together all the documentation required for customs including Department of Transport (DoT) compliant components, and we’re really happy to report that US customs cleared the shipment without any issues or need for inspection.

Now safely delivered to the new owner where he will construct his GT using our build video series and install a USA sourced engine and transmission.

The customer said “The support and communication from the UK during the ordering and manufacturing process was fantastic. I’ve built several cars in the past but I believe this one is going to be the most enjoyable. I’ve watched all the build videos several times already and it really is straightforward.”

Born in the USA

Our first American GT will be registered according to local Florida state rules and regulations, we hope it’s the first of many left hand drive Mirages to make it across the pond.
