Classic with LED Technology: Lucas 542 Cobra Replica Lamp

Available since autumn 2012: Replica of the classic Lucas-542 tail light, retrofit with modern LED technology. Originally designed for motorsport use, meanwhile our customers have employed this shapely lamp in many Cobra and Super-7 road cars. Due to separated brake light, indicator and tail light function, a public streets approval by local authorities usually is
no problem.

50 Years and Still in Duty: Racing Engine Ford Cosworth DFV

Real classics of motorsport history: Ford Cosworth racing engines of the DFV family. Already with its debut in Zandvoort 1967 the powerplant of British engine specialist Cosworth gained its first of more that a hundred racing victories in Formula 1. With the following years, the alliance of the Lotus 49 and the Cosworth DFV became legendary and the DFV engine got the most successful racing engine ever.

Until the early 90th, miscellaneous variants and derivatives of the DFV have been used in Formula 3000 and many racing sports cars. A special DFL endurance version was used at the sports car world championship and at the 24h of Le Mans.

New 2019: Programmable Head Light Blink Module SU251

It's a classic in our programme: Headlight flasher/ TipFlash module.

Amongst others, the headlight flasher is used at endurance races for automatic head light / high beam flashing while lapping a car ahead. A quick fingertip on the flash button makes the headlight blinking for several times. New: The blink count can be programmed by the user without additional tools even when completely installed in the car. The module is short-circuit proof and can be used with all common headlight units (bulb / halogen / LED).
