Default Body Conversions

The Ferrari 355 body conversion for a Mk2 MR2 is well known but I came across this body conversion for a Mk3 MR2

http://www.rs200r.com/









These things divide opinion like almost nothing else but I just thought that it looked great

There's a guy in Lincoln with the V6 in the back, not the 1MZ but the 2GE (I think it is), I think he was also talking about supercharging it

Agreed. Something like the Hawk Stratos however, has the same power as an original. If a rep looks and goes like it should, for a fraction of the cost, then it's all good!

Yes. An aquaintance has a Stratos kit car with a Cyclone 40v 2-litre V8 - 320 bhp.
That's a worthy replica for sure

Just had a Google of that engine and an old video of that Stratos popped up. Engine looks incredible but the company doesn't seem to exist any more, not that surprising when apparently the engine cost 14,000!

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). Many innovations in that series - 2-litre V16 using four Yamaha R6 heads/barrels, three-rotor Wankel to name a couple.
The Cyclone is still available I think through Mark Pemble in Dorset
