Emelie AsplundWhen you step inside a racecar trailer, the last thing you expect to find is an interior worthy of a design magazine. But Pure Performance Factory’s custom-built beauty reveals an immaculate finish that many would wish for in their own kitchens.
Avesta-based Pure Performance Factory (PPF) has been tuning prize-winning drag and street racecars for nearly a decade, winning a fan base around the world. PPF’s automotive creations have garnered rave reviews in more than 30 international trade magazines.
Lap of luxury
Famous for its eye-catching tuning work, PPF wanted a trailer to match the luxurious look of the car transported inside. Outokumpu’s Nordic Service Center in Eskilstuna provided PPF with support in converting an old trailer into a mobile workshop for a Pro-Modified turbo-charged Chevrolet Chevelle ‘69.
The optimum finish selected for the workshop interior is a high-performance stainless steel grade from Outokumpu, austenitic Supra 316plus. Thanks to its high chromium content, Supra 316plus delivers a combination of high strength, corrosion resistance and eye appeal, making it the perfect choice for demanding architectural applications such as façades.
The trailer turned heads at its debut at the FIA European Drag Racing Championships at Sweden’s Tierp Arena in August 2015. And small wonder: from floor to ceiling, the surfaces look so flawlessly clean that you could virtually eat off them. “Most trailers aren’t built with the same finish as a regular kitchen. Ours is,” says PPF President Andreas Bäckström. “Supra 316plus makes a clear statement: it’s a high-performance material for a high-performance application.”
