    When Kiran Halsey set out to build a scene-defining GT86, he had his work cut out - because he hadn’t tried anything like this before. But what he’s achieved here is something mystical, defying the very laws of nature itself…

    Matthew Bell on 29th January 2020

    This pumped-up Zed is a proper little lunatic, dropping purple hearts and making a nuisance of itself. It’s the latest flavour of madness from the scene-kings at Knight Racer, and it loves to bonfire tyres in its own purple haze…
