So what am I missing?

What's shown in that photo - nothing is hooked up?
Looks to me like a bunch of car parts arranged to resemble what a finished vehicle might look like.
So as I said, what am I missing?

How can you tell from that photo that the constituent parts aren't actually linked and functional?

You seem to be under high pressure to find disagreement, don't you?
Not really, no.

I'm just trying to understand the "looks like a bunch of car parts arranged to resemble what a finished vehicle would look like"

I'm asking you to explain to me why you think that, because I'm not seeing it. Maybe you're seeing something I'm not - hence me asking for elaboration.
Thanks for clearing that up. I'm not seeing any functional connection between the drivetrain and the raw shell, nor to the rear axle.
There are three small rectangular profiles visible that keep the parts in position. Many other components, such as a frame, are missing.

What do you see?
I can see a frame, and a connection to the rear axle. The box between the motor gearboxes and the axle, is a 2 into 1 gearbox.

What do you mean by a functional connection between the drive train and the raw shell? Part of building a vehicle like that it to keep it looking clean and simple.

That’s just lovely. Like that these guys take less popular cars to mod, rather than the usual Mustangs, Camaros, Chargers etc

Nice to see a yank with half decent wheels rather than the oversized, blingy, chrome monstrosities that Richard Rawlings and Chip Foose put on.

That's pretty impressive, was behind a gold wrapped mercedes last year and the sun reflecting was blinding.

Was in two minds wether to post this in the badly or decently modified thread chose decently as it's more a homage than replica.
Produced in Kenya using an MR2 as donor, back in the day it was shoddy F355's reps from MR2's which cost almost as much to do as buying the real thing second hand.

Ahem, a perfect candidate I'm sure we all agree - and for anyone who doesn't know, still looking for a new owner I believe.

Phil Morrison/Driftworks Murcielago. Converted to rear wheel drive, with a manual box also. ITB's, full Reiter GT1 bodywork from one of their LM entries. Custom wheels, widened rear 3/4 panels. The amount of work that's gone to make that kit work is insane, whole new suspension arms, hubs etc etc and it's road legal.

I really like the Driftworks builds but agree the Murci is next level. Hats off to Phil and his crew and especially the guy they use for the bodywork. Stunning.

Yeah that is a hell of a car. I read somewhere that the suspensions is 34 (or 38) way adjustable. Bonkers.
