Is it? rear looks like a 911 (964) wing and the engine seems to be missing at the front? (admittedly when I crashed my TR7 the engine removed itself, but it left a hole)



 
Yes it's a proper mess but look at the exhaust (the long twin pipes between boxes - For more power / faster flow with the VVT compared to the S2 motor) and just behind the rear
section you can see one of the red tail lights on the pu

Talking of Strength I drove a Jag XF R Sport today (8 Speed flappy paddle Sport Auto) which was on filthy 20" Rims but the ride quality and rigidity was exceptionally good as was the handling for such a large saloon, but a lot of the Bodywork uses aluminium as the primary component of the body structure and chassis and the bodyside panel is a single aluminium pressing.

When I worked for Lola, one of my jobs was riveting and glueing the Indy car and F3000 tubs together.

Ha, it weren't that far back Simon. Carbon fibre with an alloy honeycomb I reckon. Ari Lyendyk won the Indy 500 when I was there, I may have built his tub, wishbones and push rods. Unless they broke, then it wasn't me....
