It is reverse-engineered from original historical data and references, with 95% of components digitally designed in CAD (Catia by Dassault Systèmes) with component manufacture by specialist ICON partners.

Digital CAD accuracy achieved in chassis and suspension has build tolerance of +/-5mm to nominal.

This recreation of the legendary Porsche 917 is hand-assembled on multiple ICON jigs for 100% consistency. The track day variant remains fully compliant with UK road vehicle registration with equipment and specifications optimised for trackday usage.
