GC Automobile BMW 1M
Global Concept Automobile aka GC Automobile is a professional French racing team which designs, builds and races silhouette race cars. They have a full engineering department that can accommodate different project levels to suit the needs of their client.
Led by Team Manager Sédrick Viranaïken, their latest race car is the GC10-V8.
The GC10-V8 body started with a standard BMW 1M Coupe exterior design but was then modified and redesign with a very aggressive body work featuring composite wide fender flares.
Everything about the GC10-V8 is functional including the roof scoop which directs air into the intake of – wait for it….
..a good ‘ol American Chevy V8 engine tuned by Sodemo Development to produce a maximum output of 550HP.
A short clip of the GC10-V8 in one of its first outing at the 4-hour VdeV Endurance race in Nogaro circuit in Southwest France. You can hear that unmistakably American V8 towards the end of the video as the car takes off.

GC Automobile is currently looking for drivers in preparation for the upcoming 2012 Dunlop 24-Hour of Dubai. They finished 2nd in class and 17th overall last year with a less powerful car. They are very confident that their brand new and very reliable GC10-V8 race car, set up perfectly for this grueling endurance race, is tuned to improve upon their previous record.
