Father and Son to enjoy the Zero Build project together....

GBS Customers Jerry & Matt Haller (Father & Son) visited our stand at the Autosports Show earlier this year in January at the NEC in Birmingham where they first saw the Zero’s on display on our stand. They then came to see us at the factory and enjoyed a factory tour, meeting all the team, seeing all the behind the scenes of what we do….. They went away with plenty of ideas and options, as well as both enjoying a test drive in our demonstrator. A few weeks later we got a email to say they have decided on their Zero spec and were ready to place their order, so they came up to the factory on a Saturday and confirmed the spec and options of their kit and payed the deposit. Then last week their stunning painted Zero arrived back at the factory and we had the opportunity to take a few photographs of it before it was delivered to them the next day. 

This is going to be a project for a Father and Son who are going to enjoy together, we look forward to following their build and seeing it progress and sharing photos with you all.

We have lots of Zero self build kits currently being prepared for collection over the few weeks as well as some that are soon to be exported. We are also expecting our new demonstrator to arrive back from the paint shop later this week, so keep a look out on our social media to see more about that!

Another GBS Zero in America & one arrives in Australia…

The Zero range is available in both RHD & LHD and is sold worldwide, we had a Zero kit collected a few weeks ago that will soon be arriving with our new customer in Canada. We are also pleased to hear that the Zero Race kit we sent to New York a few weeks ago got there last week. As did this Zero kit that we sent to Australia a several weeks ago, we now look forward to receiving photos of these Zero builds and following how they progress around the world and sharing with you.

A few weekends back at the factory we had Bruce Coupe come and collect his Zero kit from us, Bruce’s Zero chassis had to be modified to suit his engine choice which was a Kawasaki GTR 1400 motorbike engine. This was no problem for us as we design and manufacturer the Zero chassis in house, we have full control over modifications and developments. So if you are looking for something different or have any questions about what is possible then please get in touch with us, we look forward to hearing from you. Or please click here for more details on the engine options that are available for the Zero range.

We are also looking forward to sharing photographs of our new Generation 2 Zero demonstrator with you hopefully later this week as it is due back from paint very soon! Don’t forget to follow us on Instagram, as it might be shared on there sooner! @gbs_cars


The NEW Second Generation Zero Chassis & New GBS Demonstrator….

The new Second Generation Zero chassis has had a very positive response since it was launched a few months ago and the improvements have been noticed. We have created a short video that walks around and talks about the NEW Second Generation Zero Sports Car.

We are also pleased and very excited to be having a new Zero demonstrator very soon. After 12 hard months of development work, our test vehicle is undergoing a transformation to become the new Gen 2 Zero demonstrator. Fitted with all the latest components from GBS and ATR Products and powered by the amazing Ford 2.5L Duratec, this is going to be something special. Keep an eye out for the final result in the next few weeks, we will be sending it off to be painted very soon! You can follow us on Instagram to see more of what we are up to and follow the build of our new Zero demonstrator. Follow us @gbs_cars

Earlier this morning we had a very nice painted Zero arrive back at the factory. We all love the customer’s choice of colour, and we can't wait to see more photos as the build progresses over the next few months, which is being delivered to its new owners who are a Father and Son next week. Another Zero that also arrived back from our paint shop earlier this week is now in our workshop in its build bay for the rest of the build to be completed.

Yes we offer Finance.... Making it even easier to own a Zero!

D_GjRffWwAI9cfP.jpg

We often get asked the question about finance on the Zero’s and products and for details of what we can offer. We are pleased to have partnered up with Pegasus Finance which can give you an instant online quote and even allows you to complete the agreement online.
Rates may vary depending on the loan amount and individual circumstances but for example, for £3,500.00 on finance for the Zero Mazda starter self build kit monthly payments would be around £85.00 spread over 48 months. (depending on the loan amount and individual circumstances)

We are seeing that finance is already proving popular not just for the Zero kits and factory builds but also for parts. You can also Finance parts which could mean you could upgrade your Zero to the new ATR Throttle Bodies or new brake upgrade kit and spread the costs over months/ years.

For more details on the finance with Pegasus please click below or contact us and we will do our best to advice you.

We also see on forums and social media and get asked about Insurance, who is best to Insure the Zero’s and similar sports cars?….
There are many Insurance companies out there who offer great competitive prices and services for the Zero’s and similar sports cars, but we are pleased to have worked with two popular Insurance companies who offer competitive prices and who we have set up a dealer accounts with.

They are Cherished Vehicle Insurance Service (part of the A-Plan Insurance company) who are a specialist Kit Car Insurance with other benefits which also include Track Day Insurance which might be of interest for a lot of you who do track days in the Zero’s and  Adrian Flux which is another popular Insurance company for the Zero range and other similar sports cars.

Always welcome to come and visit us at the GBS Factory….

Its always great when customers come and see us in their Zero’s and when new customers come to visit and see what we do we always like to show people around, the kettle is always on! We have had our USA representative Paul Barnes with us for a few days over the last few weeks, we have been busy confirming new kit packages for the USA and much more. Paul’s wife Ofelia also joined us for the day at the factory which included an afternoon out with Paul in our Zero demonstrator enjoying the country roads around Derbyshire. Whilst Paul was here at the Factory we also welcomed a USA GBS customer Michael Etzel and his wife to the GBS Factory who were over in the UK. Micheal and his wife spent a morning with us and enjoyed a factory tour and test drive in our Mazda demonstrator... Michael is currently building a Zero over in the USA, we look forward to seeing some photos of Michael’s build and sharing that with you soon. Some of the GBS team will also be in USA later this year, we will share more on this soon.

Amazing views in the South of France with the Zero….

We recently received these stunning photographs from a GBS customer in France of him out in his Zero with his son enjoying the south of France.

GBS Zero owner Anton said “We had to go into the private domain above Villefranche to get this "golden" spot with a view just by the road.”

The Zero is the ideal sports car for touring Europe and enjoying on road trips across the UK. Also recently GBS Customers Bill Bridger and Graham Cousins enjoyed a big road trip in their newly registered Zero around Europe covering lots of miles and many different countries. We will share more on their trip and more stunning photos with you very soon.

If you have any road trips planned this Summer in your Zero, then let us know or send us some photographs. We would love to see them, please visit our contact page for more details on how to contact us.

Busy workshop…. Is your Zero all set up and ready for the summer?

As many of you know we offer a full range of workshop services for your GBS Zero Sports cars and also other sports cars. We offer a wide range of services from upgrades to Mot’s. The new ATR Products brake upgrade has proven very popular as has the ATR Products Suspension upgrade. Our IVA Service is another popular service and we always have several sports cars in the workshop that are here for the IVA Service that we offer. We are able to prepare and present your car to IVA along with registration as well, this week we are presenting  two Zero’s to test with one of them passing this morning.

 We have recently seen an increase in customers having Geometry and corner weight set up done on their sports cars, which can make a big difference to both the performance and handling of your sports car.

We currently have a nice Zero in our workshop with us for the IVA Service and is booked to go to test soon. But last week we took it to be Rolling Road tested, if you visit our GBS Instagram you can see a link to a short video clip taken at 3,500 rpm solid state mapping on an Emerald ECU with a new 2.0Zetec on ATR Products Throttle Bodies. It produced 174 bhp with more to come!

 Whether you use your car for weekend drives, occasional Track Days or Motorsport we will be able to offer you something.

Visit our dedicated Workshop services page that includes the IVA Service to see more details of what we can offer, or contact us to discuss getting your car booked in. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
