A BRIEF HISTORY OF KEATING SUPERCARS
Keating Supercars are celebrating 10 years in business and preparing to drive full-throttle into another decade with the soon to be launched Keating Vipera Berus…
Dr Anthony Keating, CEO of Keating Supercars is a triple graduate of the University of Bolton. It was whilst at the University that his passions for supercars and the town of Bolton were born.
Indeed Keating knows all about power and performance – the Keating TKR has already hit 260mph on a dry lake in the USA. Keating Supercars engineers are constantly pushing the engineering capabilities and agility of their supercars and have an unrivalled knowledge of building engines ranging from 640bhp up to an egregious 2,500bhp.
Having the ability to produce their own carbon prepreg products with one of the largest autoclaves within the industry and also now supplying other manufacturers with advanced material products the company can rapidly meet demand capabilities. Keating Supercars can machine all the necessary parts in-house and 80% of all parts are sourced from the UK with the heart of the car being sourced from other suppliers. We also have our own in-house design teams led by Mr Kingsley Walker Vaughan.
Keating Supercars will be moving into and working with Bolton University at the new NCME (National Centre for Motorsport Engineering) this 13 million pound state of the art building will enable the brightest engineers within the University to work with Keating.
The fourth generation Keating Supercar the ‘Bolt’ was named after the town and will take pride of place in the University’s National Centre for Motorsport for the next generation of advanced performance engineers to develop and drive their passions.
KEATING – TKR
Built for competition and track use, the Keating TKR has hit land-speed records in it’s time – an astonishing 260mph on a dry lake in the USA in 2009.
KEATING – SKR
The road-going version of the Keating TKR supercar with a host of race-styled features available on request.
KEATING – ZKR
Unveiled at the Monaco Top Marquees Show in 2011. The Keating ZKR supercar can reach 0-60mph in 3.6 seconds.
KEATING – BOLT
Keating Supercars have purposely designed The Bolt to outperform supercar competition and future versions are intended to be entered into GT and Le Mans racing.
The Bolt uses an extensive amount of space-age and lightweight materials in its construction to reduce the power to weight ratio, but aiming to always increase the car’s performance figures.
