The 1964 Cheetah uses a 383-cubic-inch, 6.3-liter front-mounted V-8
engine positioned at 90 degrees with overhead valve design. The engine is
built with a cast-iron block and head and has 16 total valves with two
valves per cylinder. Brake horsepower measures 470 to
475 with a maximum torque rating of 435 foot-pounds. According to the
Ultimate Car Page website, the Cheetah's engine fuel feed is a proprietary
fuel injection system created by engine designer, Bill Thomas.
Brakes and Transmission
The Cheetah is equipped with four drum brakes. The vehicle's
transmission is a rear-wheel drive system with four manually shifting
gears. According to Ultimate Car Page's website, Cheetah designer Bill
Thomas was forced to use drum brakes on the vehicle because he was
restricted to using only parts that were also used on the 1963 to 1964
Frame and Suspension
The 1964 Cheetah's chassis is a space-frame type composed of
fiberglass and steel. The Cheetah's body is built from aluminum. Front and
rear suspensions for the Cheetah are independent wishbones with coil
springs. The vehicle's roll cage is positioned directly over the rear
suspension, meaning the driver operates the vehicle essentially sitting on
the vehicle's back tires. Wheelbase for the vehicle measures only 90
Cheetah Race Car Chases a Boss-302 Mustang
In this video a 400+ hp Cheetah vintage race car chases a 430 hp Boss 302
Mustang at Inde MotorSports
Ranch near Wilcox, Arizona on a day when the air temperature was 100 F. The
Cheetah seems to leap from corner to corner with little effort, using only
a fraction of it's power. This Cheetah is a very valuable collector car so
the owner does not drive it at 100%, but it still cut a lap on this 2.8-mi
21-turn track at less than 2-min. Only 15 of these magnificent race cars
from the mid-1960s were ever built. This immaculate example was built by
the owner several years ago from the original blue-prints, and is powered
by a small-block Chevy engine with four dual-throat Weber carburetors and
makes in excess of 400 hp.

My entry for the #LoveAudi Contest! :) Comparing two of the greatest

Cheetah Race Car
Born in the '60s, and re-born in recent years; like it's namesake on the
African Savanna, this race car is fast, agile, and very beautiful, and the
example featured here (one of only a half-dozen still run on the track) is
surly one of, if not the finest example out there. I came across this rare
beast over the Labor Day weekend at the new Inde MotorSports Ranch track
near Wilcox, AZ. Here's a link to another very good video featuring this
beautiful car at the Inde MotorSports Ranch race track (a 2.75 mi, 21-turn
natural terrian road course in the high desert of south-central Arizona):

2kCup - Round 3, Race 1 - Onboard Car #24 - Mazda Lantis "The Cockroach"
Starting 8th on the grid, I managed to battle my way up before making a bit
of a hash of trying to get past Ray Williams in the Peugeot 306. I decided
to let that group past so as to not gain any advantage and then with the
car making some concerning noises I had to nurse it to the finish, coming
