The purpose of the D2 is to address the need for a lightweight two-seat sportscar that is both track ready and street capable.
This is accomplished by using a 50-state emissions legal engine package and a chromoly space frame chassis architecture. The chassis features significant advances in rigidity and safety.
Roadholding and ability to handle power are enhanced thanks to a patent-pending suspension design.
For street use the D2 is sold as a kit with the customer purchasing and installing the powertrain separately from third-party vendors in order to comply with kit car requirements.
A variety of assembly and assembly assistance options are available including turn-key delivery from third party sources.
The D2 is designed primarily to use the GM LS3 'e-Rod kit' which is 50-state emissions compliant, however the strength and adaptability of the D2 chassis allows numerous other engine options. The design is mid-engine, rear wheel drive, weighing approximately 1,900 lbs with power in the 400-700 hp range depending on engine choice. A large number of transaxle types can be used, including those from Porsche, Mendeola, Subaru, Hewland and others.
The new for 2015 bodywork is available in several configurations including Roadster and Coupe.
Palatov Motorsport is able to configure a D2 precisely to fit a customer's preference and budget.
