In this update, Team Galag will tell you more about the specifications of their self-built car. The TG1 will be powered by a twinturbo V6. Getting interested? You can read more about this in this article.
So a little more information on us and our one-off concept supercar, the TG1.
We are two-year veterans of the international renowned rally, Gumball 3000, where 120 car fanatics take their cars for a route of 3000 miles. This year will be a special one for us. This year we’ve decided to design and build our own car with the help of SyFy Channel’s Parker Brothers Concepts. The car we’re building is the TG1 (Team Galag 1).
The TG1 is a bespoke build, that incorporates the vision for the design that we have been working on for quite a while, coupled with input provided by some of the Automotive industry’s most renowned consultants to get to where we are today.
The TG1 power will be coming from a 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged 24-valve V6 engine that has been tuned by performance experts to produce 750 bhp with a top speed of 200 mph. The numbers have not been tested on the dyno as of yet (but will be confirmed on launch day), we are expecting to time a 0-60mph sprint in 2.68 seconds and a 0-100mph sprint in only 5.65 seconds.
The TG1 will be accompanied by a second custom built vehicle, our own version of the Dark Knight’s Tumbler.
We wish to keep the information to a minimum until the official launch of both cars in Copenhagen, Denmark prior to the start of the 15th Anniversary Gumball 3000, on May 18th.
We also want to donate an amount of money to local Saudi Charities, this amount of money will reflect the amount of miles that we complete (per car) on the Gumball 3000. On top of that, we match any speeding tickets that we accumulate along the way.
