The Racer X Design will soon reveal the KC-427 as not long ago released he first sketches. We expect to see it by the end of the year. The 12-2 model was designed as an example of a luxurious four-seat GT by Reuben Zammit. The model is powered by a VW derived V12 engine with turbo layout. This engine is actually powerful enough to allow the car to reach a top speed of over 200 mph. There are a lot of options when it comes to design. Different design services are available ranging from show car design to full concept car design to any individual whether he needs to modify a car for competition use, or companies looking for a design that will be in alliance with what they really need.

A few months ago Racer X Design released the sketches of the KC-427, which is currently being built and expected to be shown as a fully built car by the end of the year.

The streamliner is not intended for production, and is just one of the many designs that Racer X Design have come up with.

Designed as an example of a luxurious four seater GT, the type 12-2 is the artwork of Reuben Zammit. The aim was to get the type 12-2 immediately recognizable, yet make a signature of it™s own for a specific marquee. A classic front engine rear wheel drive layout. The shape allows for a boot bigger than its rivals, yet keeping the lines flowing. The doors take a large part of the side and the roof for easier access.

The idea is to use a VW derived W12 engine with a twin turbo layout hence the name 12-2. Although not as extravagant as the W16 used in the Veyron, there would be enough power to propel the Type 12-2 to over 200 mph.

Racer X Design is a company that has designed and built some of the best show cars in the business winning first place awards in the XLR-8 live competition every time it competed with 4 different demo cars in 2 different classes for bodystyling.
