2012 AK 427 (Wheelchair Friendly)

WE HAVE A VERY SPECIAL CAR BUILT IN THE MOST PART BY MARK HIMSELF. WHAT’S SO SPECIAL ABOUT THAT I HEAR YOU ASK!!… WELL MARK FOLLOWING A MOTOCROSS ACCIDENT LOST THE USE OF HIS LEGS AND BUILT 95% OF THE CAR HIMSELF IN HIS WHEELCHAIR, HE DONE THE HARD PART AND WE HERE AT THE AK FACTORY FINISHED OFF THE CAR FOR HIM. NOW EVEN HAVING KNOWN MARK FOR A NUMBER OF YEARS NOW I AM STILL BLOWN AWAY WITH THIS FACT. IT’S NOT AN EASY TASK PHYSICALLY BUILDING AN AK 427 AND MARK DOES HAVE THE ODD TALE OF BUILDING THE CAR IN A COLD BARN MID WINTER WHEN HAVING DRAGGED HIMELF ON TOP OF THE WING TO TWEAK SOMETHING IN THE ENGINE BAY HE THEN DROPS THE SPANNER!! FRUSTRATION ON A WHOLE NEW LEVEL I’D SAY!!!
