The vendor advises that the previous owner commenced the building of this car in 2012, taking five years to complete. To reduce the amount of modifications to the body in order to fit the engine in the rear, an MG TF subframe was used which is almost identical to that of a Metro but with benefit of coil springs. All parts fitted are either MG or Rover including the engine and gearbox taken from a Rover 600 Turbo. The vendor decided that he wanted lots of power and in 2017 sent the engine to Scholar Racing Engines when racing pistons, Piper cams, larger turbo, a one‑off dry sump kit and programmable ECU were fitted at a cost of £8,415. The gearbox was rebuilt using better racing bearings. At that time, the car was able to reach 500 bhp on full boost. In 2018 new stage 2 racing clutch and new radiator were fitted. At the end of that year, the engine was down‑tuned on a rolling road to a more manageable power which means the engine and turbo are not at full capacity although the car is still amazingly quick. The V5 states the correct 2.0 litre engine. It has been used for track events and hill climb time trials for a few years now. Further details to be updated on car's arrival.
