What's new

The IGT8 2017 version is the ultimate GT platform combining great quality, performance and an outstanding look while still being the most affordable.

New Features

The IGT8 team is continuously working to make this GT platform the best performing GT in the market.

New .8 Pitch Lighter Transmission

Available as an optional in the IGT8 Red, the .8 transmission has proven to be a great success, improving not only acceleration but being a bullet proof transmission with very little maintenance which seems to be a common problem for most GT cars. This upgraded transmission also remains more consistent during the long runs and is 50 grams lighter than the previous one.

V2 Clutch Bell

The new V2 clutch material and design is specifically made to work with our aluminum shoes providing a more suitable clutch engagement while still being able to be adjusted with the 3 tension spring positions.

New Harder Suspension Arms

After improving the harder plastic suspension arms in the IGT8 Red we have now taken it a step further. A solid arm now has less flex to increase response of the car.

New Shock Towers and Extensions Front and Rear

We have changed the front and rear suspension geometry to have less roll and more traction.
With the feedback from our team drivers around the world and factory driver Paolo Morganti we have optimized the suspension geometry of the car to provide more traction while keeping the great corner speed that characterizes our car. This change has also improved tire wear and reduced tire temperatures.
