Peterborough Community Website - www.peterborough.net - is proud to announce it's sponsorship of the newly launched V8 Viento by Luego Sports Cars.

Luego are a hugely successful local Kit Car manufacturer who recently relocated to Peterborough and held the launch event for their new vehicle at Rockingham Raceway on Friday 7 February 2003.

The Community Website, along with many other local businesses have put their names to the Viento to give support to a business run by Mathew Wright and Grant Lockhead, both of whom are local and seen the benefits of moving into Peterborough.

Website Content Editor, Jenny Mogford said, "We're delighted to be supporting a local business in this way, especially one where there's so much enthusiasm and it's evident the team are working at something they really love.

"We hope to help promote brand awareness in the local community."

Luego currently manufacture three Kit Cars. 

  • The original Locost from the book by Ron Champion

  • The Velocity, which is designed for a Pinto engine and their pride and joy 

  • The Viento V8, a Lotus 7 inspired car based on the original Locost chassis. It is 12 inches longer, 6 inches wider and 4 inches higher than the original, enabling it to happily house any V8 engine and a driver as tall as 6ft 7 or 20 stone.

The V8 Viento made it's first appearance as a proto-type at the National Kit Car Show in Stonleigh in May 2002

Driver on the launch day was Mike Swinnerton, Senior Racing Instructor at Silverstone Circuit. Mike commented, "This car, with it's V8 power, is definitely going to make a challenging and exciting care to drive. It required respect, but the 'grin factor' is pretty substantial."

If you want to see the Viento, Luego Sports Cars would welcome a visit from you, their door is always open and you will receive a warm welcome.
