Yummy 28s3. I didn't realise the motors were longitudely mounted(excuse spelling.Took a guess)but i like it, or has someone shoehorned it in around the other way. That looks just like my old Cosworth engine except mine was the red motor.

Its all been re-designed and the tunnel for the gearbox rebuilt . They changed it from fwd transverse to rwd longditudinal and the interior was keep exactly the same even with the reworked body underneath . Apprently it was all messured up to the milimetre and was one of the tightest installs the boy has done . But then he does run one of the best Cosworth tuners in england!!!!!

Apparently the reason there is no 4wd cossie under it is the gearbox would foul the interior . If they fitted the MT75 and made it four wheel drive they would not be able to keep the original interior and you would know straight away it was modified (like you can't hear the diffirence!!!!! LOL) and not just that it would be less fun!!!!!!!

517 hp.Eye popping and nut numbing spring to mind for acceleration. The rear tyres would be struggling with this but what fun it would be. My Sierra had maybe 300-320 hp and it was dynamite in the wet for fishtailing if you were not real careful.

I say ditch the interior and make it AWD. What a weapon that would be and it has the looks to match. I love my V8s but this thing, this thing I could get used to. I am picturing myself going around some twisty stuff....... Dreaming dreaming

It's pure sweetness!!!! Problem for me is the cost ?? For that kindo money I could be driving something a bit classy , like an original RS500 with some serious mods or possibly a "piss yellow" 32 B coupe doing 9 sec 1/4 miles !!!!!!!! I did not see any actual final price but you should be looking at somewhere around 30k .
