Yeah, it was built for the French Toutes Terrain championship - there are a couple still being used there. Cost was on par with its peers (Millington and breathed-on Nissan 350Z motors included)....

Yes. An aquaintance has a Stratos kit car with a Cyclone 40v 2-litre V8 - 320 bhp.

This is a 260mm conversion they did a few years ago, aimed at MGF owners.
So designed for 15" wheels basically (although they will fit under certain 14s).
Pretty sure they won't fit using 13s
