MOD CAR BOLT GT70 FOR BEAMNG.DRIVE
Bolt GT70 - Bolt Motors' First Race Car Created to compete in the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1965. Taking part and winning Le Mans was a great way for Bolt to raise its popularity not only in America, but also over the hill. The first prototype, called the MK1, had a Giant, heavy carbureted 7-liter V8 under the hood, pumping a whopping 420 horses to the rear axle. Even then, the GT70 behaved very stubborn and unstable, obeying only the best drivers with extensive driving experience. The prototype, although it possessed the maneuverability inherent for racing cars, lost to competitors on the straight line. Both GT70 MK1s from the 1964 Le Mans retired. The first is due to a transmission failure and the second is due to an accident. The first pancake is always lumpy. Therefore, immediately after the failure in the 64th year, a plan for the MK2 prototype is created. The most significant change in the technical part was the Engine - the 7-liter V8. It got new Camshafts, which increased the power to a fabulous 485 horsepower! After all the modifications, the GT70 did 0-100 in just 4.1 seconds with proper gearbox handling, and the top speed on the Mulsan line was 320 km / h. The MK2's handling became even more dangerous and unpredictable, but this did not prevent him from winning a landslide victory at Le Mans in 1965, as well as in several races earlier.
