The Making of the Triple Eight: Project Sandman Tribute Edition Holden V8 Supercar
The Triple Eight Project Sandman Tribute Edition is the product of the
combination of one idea, an Australian motoring icon, six months of blood,
sweat and tears and one V8 Supercar team.
Born out of the Triple Eight Race Engineering stable in Brisbane,
Australia, the vehicle is a one-off concept with a twist. With equal parts
tribute and racing technology, the Triple Eight Project Sandman Tribute
Edition is a two-seater, 700HP beast, with more power, straight-line speed
and technology than your standard V8 Supercar.
Taking influence from the pinnacles of modern motorsport, Project Sandman
uses an F1-inspired paddle shift gear box and fly by wire throttle system
ensuring that the vehicle continues to push the boundaries of Australia's
premier motorsports category, V8 Supercars. Project Sandman is capable of
reaching speeds of over 300km/h while maintaining the pure thrill and
adrenaline rush of a Red Bull Racing Australia V8 Supercar.
