Su­per­car con­tin­ues on its amaz­ing jour­ney

Herald Sun - Motoring - - Australian International Motor Show -

AUS­TRALIA’S very own su­per­car will take an­other step closer to full-scale pro­duc­tion at the Aus­tralian In­ter­na­tional Mo­tor Show.

The JOSS JP1 was first shown as a pro­to­type at the Mel­bourne Mo­tor Show in 2004. Now the com­pany is ready to let en­thu­si­asts take an­other look into the fu­ture with a dis­play fea­tur­ing a com­puter-gen­er­ated pre­view of the new car.

Vis­i­tors will also be able to in­spect its eval­u­a­tion ve­hi­cle and see a wind tun­nel model pre­pared for test­ing, as well as var­i­ous com­po­nents from its tech­ni­cal part­ners.

The JP1 has been mov­ing ahead steadily since 2009 when JOSS De­vel­op­ments opened its tech­ni­cal cen­tre in Mel­bourne.

‘‘We had an amaz­ing re­cep­tion for our JT1 pro­to­type in Mel­bourne sev­eral years ago, but build­ing a car busi­ness is very in­volved,’’ JOSS De­vel­op­ments tech­ni­cal di­rec­tor Matt Thomas says.

‘‘So JOSS De­vel­op­ments has spent the past few years work­ing on the busi­ness so that when we launch JP1 the com­pany will be geared up to de­liver a great prod­uct to the mar­ket.’’
