How many options are there of buying the Zero?
The Zero is available as a kit or fully built ready to drive. The kits can be tailored to the individual builder's needs as we realise that every kit builder is different.
How long will it take to build my kit?
There is no set time scale to build a kit. The time it takes to build your kit depends on skill level, equipment and kit option. The build is straightforward providing you have some basic mechanical knowledge. We offer complete technical support and advice to you during and after your build. For more advice please contact us. Also as a manufacturer we recommend that you join the RHOCaR club as there is a lot of valuable help and advice available for all its members.
How do I order and what is the delivery time?
You can order your kit by phone, email or visit our showroom. We recommend that you come to the GBS factory in person, as we like to give you a more personal service and make sure your kit is the right one for you. Delivery or collection of your kit depends on the type of kit you have ordered. You will be advised on this when you place the order with us.
Can you deliver the kit or is it collection only?
We recommend that you come to the factory and collect your kit, as one of our technical team will help you load your kit and talk you through all the parts and answer any questions you may have. It will also be an excellent opportunity for you to come and look around our workshop and showroom to get more ideas and inspiration for your kit build. If you prefer, we can deliver your kit to you via courier. For more details and prices please contact us.
