Nice...for some reason the headlamps remind me of some new audi cars, which is a good thing. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif">

I like it... For some reason it brought the new Austin Mini to mind. It's the first thing that popped into my head when I saw the pic. Completely different cars, I know, but maybe it's the wheels or something.<P>Jay<BR>--<BR>83 242 Turbo<BR>98 S70 T5 SE

It's the limited edition Ford Racing Puma. The Puma is Ka based I believe. <P>Anyhow, it's a cool car. They're also fun to build out on Gran Turismo. You can beat much higher hp cars if you pick a track that doesn't have too many long straights.

I think the puma is based on the Fiesta chassis with a wider track and thid one has a 8" wider track than the standard Puma.<P>Gran Turismo have got it pretty much spot on because the car isn't all the quick in a straight line, but there isn't much that will catch it round the twisty bits!!!

Don't know for sure, but I would assume so. Would be very expensive to make an all new chassis etc for a small car which sells for under £10k
