    We will give it new just about everything basicly, as you will see on the pictures attachecd here.

    Engine will be based on a heavily reinforced twin turbo charged koeniggsegg ccx engine.

    No photos of this engine will be shown before the car is comleted, but i can tell you that it looks pretty good
