Two weeks and about 160 hours later and things are coming together nicely. So far a Westfield Se7en kit car has been used for the front end, headlights were taken from a Peugeot
207, an old Hillman Imp offered up its steering rack, the rear deck is a combination of a Fiat
126 and Morris 1000, while a Ford
Escort provided the rear axle. Nissan uses a 300hp mid-mounted 1.6-liter four-pot in their 500kg contraption, and Top Gear did their best to ape the engine in plumping for a similar-sized unit from an old Ford sans the turbochargers. Equaling the game-changing car's power-to-weight ratio is clearly not something on Saunders' agenda.
