AK 40 Demonstrator “ANTIONETTE”

The AK40 Demonstrator is based on a Southern GT chassis designed by Mick Sollis.

AK will be further developing the AK40 to accept the modern Ford Coyote quad cam engine and a more modern transaxle. It will be available in both modular form and factory built.

We now have the AK40’s in full production, following our purchase of the project from Southern GT. The standard chassis takes the well proven Ford 302 small block V8 but we’ve been able to modify the engine cradle to take the modern Ford Coyote quad cam engine.

We can build the chassis to take either a ZFQ or a Renault UN 1 transaxle, though the latter is getting increasingly hard to find now. Mountings for a Porsche G50 transaxle is something we’re looking at for the future.

The first stage in building the car is to attach the 70 odd aluminium panels and floor and these are now available to get you started. This is no small task and will take you some time to complete. The next stage is to build up the 4 corners. The floor pan comes flat as standard with a floor dropped by 25mm available at extra cost.

Suspension arms and wishbones are available now, with items to complete the 4 corners – uprights, shocks and springs, wheels and tyres available to order. There is currently quite a long lead time for wheels and tyres – 12-16 weeks – so you will need to order these well in advance. We will continue to use Lee Dawson’s bodies as his are of first-class quality.
