traduction anglaise : The WB Special is a one off prototype, designed in 1956 and first licensed in 1963 after a 7 year home build. The joint designers and builders were Bob White and Dr John Best. It has been built on a tubular steel space-frame with all alloy bodywork. The gearbox is from a 1098cc Austin Healey Sprite. The bodywork was designed as a low drag, aerofoil section where the upper surface creates stability and the full length, curved undertray provides downforce. All other parts are original and castings, including the wheels and the suspension uprights. The reason for the narrow track at the front is to induce mild understeer and allow an adequate turning circle. The engine is placed well back to give equal corner weights on the wheels.
