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.
