Bailey Blade project hits the rocks

Bailey Blade project hits the rocks

Bailey Blade fq

We would all love to build our own supercar, but determined American Neal Bailey is making it happen. Bailey has been working on his Bailey Blade project for well over a year now and has recently hit a snag. Like the Detroit three money has become very scarce for Bailey and he is asking for donations to keep the dream alive, and to help with funding he is taking the project in a green direction.

Visitors to the Bailey Blade website can keep help Neal with a little cash while reading about the newest trim levels of the exotic Blade. If all goes as planned, Neal hopes to not only offer the Blade XTR, a 750 hp, 5.4L, Roush-powered supercar, but also the Blade EVR and Blade HDR.

The EVR is an all-electric version of the Blade with dual electric motors feeding off lithium ion phosphate batteries. Neal claims “big block performance but all electric.” The HDR would be a 600 hp Roush supercharged V8 with an on-demand hydrogen system. Theoretically, owners would see a 20% fuel-savings over a gasoline-only engine.

At this stage Bailey should probably keep concentrating on the basic model Blade which stats are as impressive as its looks. Powered by a Roush 353 with 480 hp. Fiberglass over box steel frame with a target weight of 2,200 pounds. Four-wheel independent suspension and six-way adjustable shocks and adjustable coil-overs. The Price? Bailey only says he hopes to make it “affordable”

Donors to the Blade project will get their names posted on the Baily Blade Web site, as well as on displays accompanying the car at shows. They’ll also be added to a newsletter list to get the latest news on the project’s progress.
