BASED ON THE WINNER OF THE 2012 PIKES PEAK INTERNATIONAL HILLCLIMB UNLIMITED CLASS
Designed specifically for hillclimb competition, the D1PPS (Pikes Peak Special) uses the longer D1-derived chassis and bodywork, with substantial additional rollcage and other reinforcements to comply with unique requirements of the Pikes Peak hillclimb.
The D1PPS can use either Hartley H1 V8 or Hartley H2 4-cylinder, either turbocharged or normally aspirated, with other powertrain configurations possible.
The engine is coupled to a custom Hewland sequential gearbox with Geartronics electronic paddle shift and the Palatov proprietary lightweight AWD system.
Carbon body, floor and pilot pod complete the spec. The D1 incorporates all the modularity and safety features of the Palatov Modular platform, shared with other Palatov cars.
Palatov Motorsport can custom-build and configure a D1PPS to a customer's precise specifications. Factory engineering, fabrication and development support is available.
