Bailey Sports/ Racing Cars for the Racing Enthusiast and the Collector
This is what separates Bailey Cars from the rest of the Classic Racing Replica market
Limited Production:Other replica manufacturers aim to maintain “mass production” at its fullest, keeping their cost down while saturating the market. We at Bailey Cars believe such a goal contradicts the essence of what a respectable car fabricator is, and what a true enthusiast wants. Our designers maintain a personal touch with their products, and you can rest assured that our highly skilled fabricators take special care in producing your machine. You won’t be disappointed - not when you receive and drive the car -and not when you decide to sell it.
Suspension Materials: Many Replica car makers use standard everyday aluminum, but Bailey cars are made from aircraft strength aluminum. Billet Aluminum 7075 uprights with easy bearing change and quick set up adjustments. Aurora rod ends fitted as standard equipment.
Brakes: While Most Replica Car Mfg’s use Willwood brakes, Bailey cars use four piston AP Racing Brakes for their Racing and Street cars for extra performance and safety.
Chassis: High performance race proven design. Laser cut carbon steel space frame chassis (which has a torsional stiffness of 18,500 Nm/deg). Laser cur aluminum panels which are then bonded and riveted to the chassis.
Performance: Last year at Zwartkopts Raceway in South Africa the Bailey GT 40 won 24 out of 27 races, beating the top performing Superformance GT 40.
917 Safety: The Bailey Team has strengthened the front of the 917 chassis over the original and most competitor’s, to protect the drivers feet if an accident occurs. Complete welded in roll cage, standard on all models with removable side bars on road cars.
P 4 Design: Unlike their Competitors, the Bailey designers use a tubular chassis that can easily fit a V 12 engine, so the passenger compartment is full size.
