That includes a frame outback that held the mid mounted engine and fully adjustable all round suspension!!!! Initially it was offered with a 1.4ltr "K" Series engine however there was room back there to fit up to the 1.8ltr VVC engine out of the MGF or even Honda VTEC's all were offered as an options. Back in 1998 not only was it offered as a built car, if you had the skill it was also available at a kit car, all you needed was a donor Rover Metro for bits and registration!!!!!
So how much would you pay for a mid engined lightweight sports car? well back in the day the one below was offered built with a new engine fitted and registered from £14,995 or as a kit for £10,995. Unfortunately the company was sold in 2003 to RDM and later in 2007 to Potenza. Yes it is now on my list of possible project cars.
