Racing cars[edit]

Funyo 4 RC

Funyo 4[edit]

The Funyo 4 RC and its close relative the Funyo 4 RS are lightweight Group CN sportscars. The car is powered by a 2 liter Peugeot RCC engine. In 2008, 2009 and 2010 this car was the sole model in the V de V Funyo Challenge.

Funyo 5[edit]

In 2011 the Funyo 5 was introduced. Updated aerodynamics are some of many improvements. This makes the car approximately 5 seconds a lap faster than the Funyo 4 on a circuit like Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya.[1] The car is designed to race with the Funyo 4 in the V de V Funyo Challenge.

Funyo 7[edit]

The Funyo 7 is a more powerful Group CN / Group R3T sportscar. This car has a more powerful Peugeot EP6DTS turbo engine. This car is designed to compete in various Group CN classes like the SPEED EuroSeries and the V de V Proto Endurance series. The car made its debut in the 2009 V de V Proto Endurance series, driving a partial season entered by Y.O Concept. Two Funyo 7's were entered by HMC Loheac in the same championship in 2010. None of the Funyo 7's appeared in the following years.
