Holy crap, dude! GBP33K is a lot of Aussie monopoly money in anyone's book. Wouldn't it be easier (and less costly) to stuff a V8 under the bonnet like these guys?

Not sure how weight distribution works out though.....

What would 1350kgs and 460HP be good for? 11 sec qtr?

11.66 @ 116mph
assuming perfect launch, perfect traction, perfect world....
although 1350 sounds a bit light :?:

Compared to GBP32 575, they're actually cheap. If you go look on their website you will see it includes strengthening of the trans and haldex, additional cooling for haldex etc. They build up the whole car to last under the pressure.
