Odd LR

Ah I don't know I kinda like it? Maybe it just seeing somebody doing interesting LR stuff in a shop, using the sheet metal forming tools. Maybe I'm just jealous they have enough time to spend on a project like that. I will admit though, it's kinda as though Quella Deville had commissioned the build. -Gustaf

So I wonder how the Rover drive train will handle the ROLLS ROYCE “Merlin“ * V 12 cylinder (aircraft engine) 27.0 litre approx 1500 bhp (supercharged)as shown in the engine options section.

I like the long nose, but I'm struggling with the sloped rear.

Im not thrilled with the slope rear either. Its a bit too MG TC for me but the rest of it is really cool kind of like a P40 Warhawk with wheels.

I should be a lot better at altitude than the Allison 12 cyl.... at least it was in the P 51 D.

Cooling may be a concern though considering how a small V 8 3.9 cools.

I think the slope rear would look better than a squared off rear. Not having a cabin top would make it look like you're driving a brick.
