Looks stunning!!!

It's an excellent evolution of the legendary Rally winner.
The only thing I don't like is the split front window.

What is the proposed engine? I hope it's a nice V6. Actually an NSX engine would be sooo nice (hey, even Elise use Toyota engine nowadays).

... and even if it doesn't make it into production, I guess you could ask Hawk cars to build the bodyshell.

Very nice!

Here is the company website:

http://www.fenomenon.com/

The company is based in London and they are planning to start low volume production in 2007 (subject to funding & getting an engine deal). The founder (Chris Hrabalek) has been quoted as saying that the ideal engine would be the 420bhp V8 from the Ferrari 360CS - now that would be great.

Another couple of points of interest:

- Extensive use of Carbon Fibre means a kerb weight under 1000 kgs

- Long travel suspension means the car can even run on dirt roads (like the original Stratos)

As much as I love the 360cs engine I think the car should have a transverse V6 just like the original. A transverse V8 IMHO is too heavy and wide, and from the pics I dont think the car could have a longitudinal V8 installed.

Too bad Ferrari don't make any good V6 anymore.

Can't wait to see this one in white-green Alitalia stickers and yellow wheels



Sandro Munari will be very proud
