Fast & Furious Live banner

Fast & Furious Live

Quaife was approached by SHP Engineering, specialists in stunt vehicle preparation, chassis design and development, to manufacture bespoke transmissions for vehicles used in Fast & Furious Live. The box office smash tour enables fans of Universal’s biggest ever film franchise to experience the high-octane stunts that have captivated cinema lovers for years.

SHP requested transmissions and differentials able to cope with the power and traction necessary for the tight arena settings. With such demands, the cars that took part required high performance, robust and reliable driveline components that would cope with the abuse thrown at them, from one show to the next. Products included unique 4-speed versions of the Quaife QBE60G, suitable for short bursts of high power.

Ligier JS P4

Onroak Automotive

The Ligier JS P4 prototype by Onroak Automotive uses a Quaife transverse 6-speed semi-automatic paddle shift transmission. The French based racing firm is currently in the process of testing before an expected launch later this year.

Quaife Engineering has been working closely with the company in developing and manufacturing the vehicle’s bespoke gearbox. The JS P4 uses a 3.7 litre supercharged Ford V6 developing 420 bhp. Weighing in at just 920 kg and featuring a 100-litre fuel tank, performance is expected to be scintillating.
