Much the same shape as an ur-quattro, but a lot more fins and spoilers.
Tubular chassis, with Kevlar bodywork thinner than a cereal box. Driver's
door weighs about four ounces. One-off mechanicals, some of them from
the Sport. Electronics of a medium-sized aircraft. The entire rear of the car
is oil coolers.
600+ bhp - rumoured to be up to 750bhp in competition. Less than 2/3rds the
weight of a Sport and twice the power.
Only a handful exist. If it's even that many.
