Our engineering team evolved a design for a composite chassis that could be used for a variety of vehicles. To highlight the company’s capabilities and the flexibility of the Bio-Chassis design, Berkeley Coachworks has already developed 6 designs, two for the Berkeley brand and four for external clients.
These include mid-engine ICE configurations for i4, V6 and V8 powertrains, as well as a front wheel drive set up for the Berkeley SE328 concept car.
The chassis is also suitable for electric power with designs finalised for front, rear and all wheel drive. Two of these have been specified by customers for an all-wheel drive electric supercar and a school car for race circuits using a single electric motor and integral gearbox differential unit driving the rear wheels.
As well as forming the basis of the Berkeley car range, the chassis is available to customers as a rolling chassis, with or without powertrain.
In the old tradition of coachbuilders, we can take your styling idea and transform it into reality. Using the latest CAD design software, early sketches can be efficiently turned into fully rendered designs on varying backgrounds.
The finished design can then be machined using state of the art CNC milling machines combined with our low investment bodywork construction methods and Bio composites.
