  1. Design your own car.

    Thanks, some day I actually plan to build it, but at this point it will be years into the future.
  2. Design your own car.

    Use Volvo 740 estate bodyshell as a template from which carbon fiber body panels can be produced. These will surround a carbon fiber monocoque as opposed to the usual floor pan, then it will be something like this:

    - McLaren F1 seating arrangement
    - Bulkhead behind passenger seats to separate cockpit from "engine room" (hence needing an estate <A BORDER="0" HREF=""><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/wink.gif"></A>)
    - Power comes from a 5 litre twin turbo V10... running on diesel (yes, THAT 5 litre V10 <A BORDER="0" HREF=""><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/wink.gif"></A>), with appropriate mods to take it over 500hp and 1000Nm
    - 6 speed DSG gearbox
    - RWD
    - Ferrari's F1 Trac system/active diff with switchable modes.
    - lashings of leather, alcantara, real wood and metal for the interior appointments - luxury finish.
    - stock as possible on the outside
  3. Design your own car.

    That would be hot. 33 Stradale is one of the best looking high performance cars ever built (3rd best looking in my opinion, after F40 and Miura).
