That's sad. How can he even see the road in front of him?

This looks like one of those images that used to show up in Spitfire & GT6 Magazine where they asked for captions. I miss those.

I think his oil is overheating!
She handles like a dream.

I suspect the points out front are flame throwers; looks like most of the exhaust might normally come out just in front of the wheel, but seems there's an electric diverter valve on those points. I'd like to see that in action!

So the question is "still running the stock diff"?

We had a guy show up at The Roadster Factory Summer Party one year with a Spitfire which had a Olds Jetfire 3.5 Turbocharged V8 (the ancestor of the later Rover V8) "installed" into a Spitfire. He had just got it running and it was a basically bolted into a stock 1980 Spitfire with stock (read old) brakes, suspension, rear end, etc... the bonnet was cut to fit it all in and the exhaust was interesting with the old turbo system, but kind of reminds me of this car.

Of course my old Grassroots Challenge car also had the engine partially exposed, so who am I to judge :-)

I wouldn't be amazed to discover a tiny electric motor tucked away under all that 3D printed movie-prop stuff.

I'm curious how the bonnet lifts.

I think the hardtop was needed so that his toupee wouldn't get sucked into the intake.

Its weight ballance is a perfect 50/50 , the aerodynamics are outstanding and it stops on a dime . Everything is wonderful just don't step on the brakes to hard .

Is it just me, or does it look like the front end is riding a bit low; with some negative camber on the front wheels? Did he modify the front suspension/brakes? (I hope).

What is up with the skirts over the rear arches?

It almost looks like something Snidely Whiplash would concoct.

I'm guessing it doesn't move under it's own power. Pull it onto the trailer, roll it off.
