Designed by Dennis Palatov, whose Palatov Motorsport company was founded in 2008 to create affordable high-performance vehicles for recreational track day use, the Palatov D1 is the flagship of the manufacturer's embryonic range.

The awesome combination of its featherweight build (the car weighs in at an incredible 1,100 lbs), its advanced underbody aerodynamics, and the custom-built 430-bhp 3.0-liter Hartley V8 engine ensconced beneath its distinctive one-piece carbon body shell, means that the single-seater can boast a daunting power-to-weight ratio of 1,000 bhp-per-ton.

The result is a car that, thanks also to its proprietary all-wheel drive system and five-speed sequential gearbox, can give a Porsche RS Spyder LMP2 racer a run for its money for only a tenth of the purchase price and running costs of its illustrious rival, and it's this accessibility that brings the Palatov D1 within reach of dedicated track enthusiasts around the world.
