Holy crap, I aint never seen one of those before. Definitely inspired from the XD/E, or is it the other way around??
Nice car by the way! I wonder how it goes compared to the straight 6's in the XD/E's.

The bonnet/grille area is definitely XD style.

Re: granada 2.8 v6 '82 / estonia / rat_013

its german made car, the model originated basicallt from england, though.
you can check http://www.granada-enthusiasts.org/ for england granada/scorpio guys.
the grille and front spoiler are self-made, originally the model looks like this:


FoMoCo4eva - yes the rubber things in axles are QUITE worn already, gotta change them some time, so you saw it right :)
i havent measured any performance times etc, although i might do that some time, maybe in summer. cuz its winter here :) as you can see from here:
