Belongs to Craig at Top Gear Stockport.  I've seen his build thread on another forum and the amount of custom work he's done and the standard of the car is very impressive. Saw it in the flesh at japfest a few years ago too. Made mine look rather shabby parked just behind it... Great buy for someone.

Yeah.

Cost = Fortune

Given all of the custom work going into that car I am going to guess c.£60-80k right now for parts and labour.

It doesn't need them. I bet it will be over 600hp N/A, maybe beyond 650. With lightened and balanced rotors and rotating assembly it will probably be redlining around 11,000 RPM.

It will be a monster.

Like these beauties.
