Not to be confused with the VW Passat Coupé which sold in the US as the Quantum, Quantum Sports Cars (QSC) Coupé was the brainchild of Mark and Harvey Wooldridge who founded QSC in 1987.
The Coupé was the brothers first model and featured an all glass reinforced plastic, grp, shell that benefited from computer analysis to ensure structural rigidity.
The mechanical running gear and many fittings of the Coupé were designed to be sourced from Ford Fiesta Mk 1 donor cars.
The very first Quantum Coupé was scrapped in the interests of safety after it had under gone many modifications during the prototype stage. The second Quantum suffered a similar fate after an accident wrote it off.
The car seen here uses parts from a 1985 donor car.
Only 17 Quantum Coupé’s were built in total, the model was replaced with a more successful saloon which required a Ford Fiesta Mk 2 donor car.
