@ToyotaSupraMan wonder what else he did to the engine, as I recall reading something about the road-going homologation RS200s still needing an engine rebuild every 30k km or so.

@KSK the 037 wins it for me too, Peugeot on a close second. All the other cars had, while still really great, some flaws. The S1 was hopelessly noseheavy, the S4 was a deathtrap and so on. But choosing between all those cars is hard.

@FunctionFirst @apex_DNA @dem00n from an engineers point of view, a rotary is really great compact motor .. just not for a car. Its just not good for varying revolutions. In a generator or airplane with its constant speeds its still a good choice, since you can adjust the engine for that specific very narrow rev-range. There still are dozens of manufactures for aviation wankels.

@speedhunters_dino if they make it right the result could be better than the old GT500 and DTM. DTM is so boring these days, having to rely on DRS systems to provoke overtaking outside the pits. And all three manufactures seem sort of ok with how the series is running, so at least I don't feel any sort of real rivalry in it. Neither does the media care for it.
But if you throw in another three car makers that our German top dogs do fear its bound to get interesting.

The size of the transmission tunnel hints to an RWD layout, so I'd think, even if it gets the Yukes 1.6 turbo (with its Deltawing racing pedigree) it won't get the Yukes transverse transmissions.

@jjjjj sadly impossible with todays safety regulations on new cars (esp. pedestrian crash safety)
are there videos of the Supercar demonstration? I'd love to see the 911 and the Lambo being thrown around the track

@johnbezt "Rush" pretty much will be one
too bad Speedhunters will have to hype this movie here more or less by contract, I expect no objective features on it :/

@Jordan_Burgess nah, you can't read an article without at least one appearance of a 2JZ swap either, but thats how the tuning world works a the moment. Wondering from year to year which engine the tuners will jump on next, but its still the JZ, and it gets squeezed in whatever engine bay one has to offer ;)

@MrFabulous I so want to see that build

just a little info I'd like to add, those Google Earth pictures were taken during the "Rock Am Ring" music festival. Thats why you can see camp sites all around the GP track, next to Döttinger Höhe and on parts of the Nordschleife

@InnerToxicity that engine looks quite similar to the Zetec, but I don't know anything about working with those engines. Look up some forums for your car, pretty sure someone has done a carb conversion on a 206 before.

@InnerToxicity it really depends on the engine. In this case with the Zetec you just ditch all electronic parts on the engine and just use the "mechanics" left, i.e all the stuff thats rotating.
On a newer engine with variable valve systems, tons of Eco stuff, non-distributor ignition and so on you need to modify a lot more. Technically you could even run a VR38 on carbs. Adjusting of the carbs should be done by a professional, so that you not damage the engine by running lean.
is it only me, or do the Mercedes, Volvo and Vausxhall Concept look extremely alike?

@Curlytop "1000cc injector x 8" makes me think is meant to produce double that if needed o_O But I guess between 700 and 800 is more realistic. GS1 had almost 700 bhp already.
If I see builds like this with moved suspension, extensive aero and such, I often wonder if it wouldn't be easier to just build a tubeframe car from scratch and drape it in some silhouette.

@awholley move you cursor over a photo, the "presentation mode" button should appear then. Am I right that all pics are uploaded in former "Desktop"-resolution now? That great!

like that new style, bit similar to MotoIQ, which's a good thing
