So... though long and hard about going back to my tried and tested V6 with silly power (my noble with its ford mondeo V6 has over 700bhp).... had to go right back to my original dream for the car, and that was for it to be a real oddball exotic, its not all about speed as I already have that covered with the Noble and to my ears the noble simply sounds meaty, not exotic.
Plus V6 in a capri has been done before a few times
So I'm back to the original plan... started making the chassis in Feb, long way to go and i can't finalise the position of the roll cage until i have made the moulds of the tub as i want it a close fit to the new bodywork.
Driving position has been the biggest challenge as i have pushed the engine way back to get it behind the wheel C/L (making it mid engined). I need the driving position to be 100% bang on as its main use is going to be road trips around euro
Made the front uprights, just go to fabricate the wishbones and then the chassis can become a roller
