Thought you might like this car...



Not sure if this will work (I tried following the tutorial, honest I did!)

Anyway, mate has just finished building this beast.

Robnel Cobra
Runs a 460ci Alloy Block imported from the U.S.
Only tuned (at this stage) to about 5000rpm from memory, a little more work to go when he gets back from the states later this year.
When finished it should be putting out a little over 600hp
As for the finer details
Fabricated the side pipes himself
Couldn't find any carpet he liked through Robnel so fabricated checkerplate for the footwells (incl neon lighting to match the dials)
leather interior
a completely redundant stereo given the noise of the engine (it does sound good when the car is stationary and not running though)
paint about 15 coats
public appearances so far include a stint in the Grand Prix drivers parade, although Frentzen wouldn't even sign an autograph for him!!!

It's up on blocks at present, but i'll see if I can get him to head along to one of your cruises when he gets back from OS.

Looks the business, especially with those stripes! I presume he is running fuel injection?

Right click on the link to the picture, not the link to the thumbnail, easy mistake to make. :>

Damn. I bet it hauls ass . . . :)
Robnell do some good cars, but the motor should be something very special. The standard big block robnell's would be a handful, but that would be insane

Lovely paint as well... Looks like a really well completed car all round . . .

They are somewhat illegal.

Rego earned with a straight through system

Side pipes added after registration and engineering testing.

He definitely doesn't want to get pulled over by the EPA!!
