Monogram Lotus Sport 300 with a Revell 600bhp Audi R8 V10 swapped for the 300bph Lotus 2.2 turbo four cylinder.

Solder exhaust headers with heat shrink collectors and candle heated and reshaped final exhaust from the Audi kit and aluminum tips.

Box stock other than the drive train and adjusted ride height both front and rear.

Next to some other super cars build in the past. (the kit decals registration is terrible. even worse on close up)

Doubling the HP should make it a thrilling ride.

Thanks Curt.

Yeah Paul, the fiberglass body on that galvanized I frame would be so light.

A beautiful build - and it makes for a very nice trio.

Not only did you do an excellent job, the engine swap and fit looks like a real world possibility.
