I'd love this as a daily driver. What a sleeper.

Did that used to be an Enzo or was it built by Ferrari around an Enzo tub?

well two minutes on GOOGLE and you will find this;
about 3/4 down the page, Chris Todds' Fiesta Supersport with a 2.5 Impreza engine.

I love that, apart from the interior, doesn't fit at all.

yes

Brand new complete Enzo IIRC straight out of a Ferrari main dealer in LA to Pininfarina where the exterior panels were removed

Confusingly they have built another one for racing based on a scuderia. I'm not too sure how you tell the difference though.

Have a look on youtube - he's posted some videos. There is also a thread in the Ferrari section down the page.

Indeed. It's basically a transplant of a modern Jaguar (XKR, I think) into a Mk2, so they obviously took the dash over too as it would have been too much fabrication to get all of the dials, switchgear and electronics into the original dash.

Chris Todd's Fiesta is indeed sporting an RST engine in that picture.
I'm assuming it's since had the Impreza engine transplant.

Original C110 Skyline, when done up in old jap tuning trim, is one of the coolest cars in history.

That would be great, my only quibble is the interior I don't like the centre console/transmission tunnel, it looks jarringly out of place to me.

Yep. As I said earlier, it's basically a transplant of a modern Jaguar (XKR, I think) into a Mk2, so they just transplanted the whole interior as well.
