    That's the noise it makes just before it tries to kill you.
    I can't imagine how lively one of these things is in a mk1 or mk3.

    Terrifying I think is the word I use in the mk1 "oh it's got loads of grip f@&£&k in bastards tried to kill me again" I must be mad wanting more torque and bhp lol.

    Bringing this build to a close, the customer from France finally finished the replica and sent me this video.

    I hate all southerners. As a point of reference, I'm stood at the north pole.

    that's a pretty nice replica - everything slightly smaller than the original. I don't think any exhaust in the world can make a v6 sound like a v10 though.

    Yes I noticed it all looked a bit too small particularly the windscreen which also doesn't look quite right as the rake is far too high. Front on it actually looks more like a Ferrari California.

    In all fairness though, it doesn't look too bad compared with some of the rep kits.
