This video series is automative enginering porn. I've only been watching updates for 3 years, some have watched for over 5 lol.

"We're trying to create one of the fastest Minis on the planet. We're going to rebuild it with the engine and running gear from a Toyota Celica ST185 GT4. Or at least that's the plan. Whether it comes off or not is another matter. We're filming this as it happens so what you see is only a few weeks behind where we're actually at so we're not sure yet whether we can do it. That's kind of the fun though."

Quite a few out in existance

Speaking of which, RWB is launching a 997 kit soon as well, should be interesting though not as extreme as the O&N

So I can buy a cheap 996 and plus £10.5k for the body kit?

I think that'll be perfect for my mid life crisis coolbiggrin

I linked a several of my favourite RWB's 100 pages or so back, but hadn't seen these before.

I like the Honda engined Mini van, any more info on it?

Are there different laws in America for headlight height? Because the bumper lights on the flatnose 911 are 99% probably too low to be legal headlights by UK law.

Trying to work out where to put this, sod it here! 2009 RUF CTR3 Yours for Estimate: $800,000 to $1,000,000
One of just 30 CTR3 cars built, this exotic rarity is seldom seen or offered in the United States, and this particular car is one of just two examples in the world in “Guards Red” Livery. Custom ordered with optional 754 hp engine, the car has had just three private owners and has covered approximately 4,600 miles since new
