Featured car: Stitch (2019 RF)


2019 RF

Stitch started life as Jones, an FM development car. It was quite likely the first ND2 delivered in North America. It was used for benchmarking and investigation of the new model including dyno and track testing.

After a few years, we didn't have need for an ND2-specific testbed in the FM fleet so we sold Jones to Travis, with an arrangement that allowed FM continued access to the car if needed. Travis renamed the car Stitch and proceeded to put his own stamp on it. Since Travis is also our photographer, Stitch gets some great pictures.
