"Nitro Nick" Boninfante, of ..., 8 May 2011 [cached]
"Nitro Nick" Boninfante, of Boninfante Performance Racing Clutches, the industry leader in clutches for pro nitro drag racing teams and many other forms of motorsports, announced that the company has entered the specialty/custom clutch market and their first new product is a clutch assembly for the Lamborghini Mirua.
The Lambo Mirua was only built from 1967 until 1973 with three different models, the Mirua P400, the P400 S and the P400 SV and replacement parts for these models are very hard to get, especially the clutch assembly.
"I had a friend of mine who owns one of these cars who came to me and asked for our help with the clutch," Boninfante said. "After I looked at it I knew that with all the technology we have today that we could recondition the pressure plate and flywheel and build a new clutch disc that would be better than the factory unit and would be a vastly superior to what's currently available for these cars."
"We built a prototype and it worked perfectly," Boninfante continued.
If you're interested in having a custom built clutch for your Lambo or any other make or model of vehicle or race car call Nick Boninfante on his cell phone (610) 909-8957 or visit:

Nick Boninfante, Sr. founded ..., 31 Mar 2009 [cached]
Nick Boninfante, Sr. founded the Company in 1988. Being a professional nitro funny car team owner and tuner for many years prior, he, like other team owners of the late 1980s and early 1990s, where unhappy with the current clutch companies he and others purchased their clutch parts. He decided to enter into the drag racing clutch market because the industry participants at the time were not providing quality parts nor were they interested in quality service. Since only a few small companies participated in this market, these providers of drag racing clutches were high-priced as well. Mr. Boninfante thought that he could do better, so he started the Company with these goals and objectives:
Since every professional drag race team uses something with little variations, such as size, hardness, and material, Boninfante can offer the customer the largest and most variable product selection in the industry.
