It needs to do the London - Cape Town run stat! I saw drawings somewhere of that as a concept. Very cool, although with a V8, wouldn't run it without a roll cage of some type.

This did the rounds about 5-6 years ago. Seems like most hate it but I think it's great. I'd love to put one together with a jag V12 or a '53 Buick straight-8.

Originally it was to house the 27ltr 1500bhp Merlin engine out of a spitfire but getting that road legal wasn’t possible!!!!!!

You'll need a telephone pole for a drive shaft.

Without the Merlin engine, I feel like its pointless.

If you are gonna do it, go all out.

No, my idea about the Buick inline-8 is awesome!

In all honesty, I've researched building and tuning this motor and tried to figure out the right t-case fit etc. there is just no point going any further until I can actually get some parts. Breaks my heart every time I see a pile of series parts for sale. This thing totally needs to be rallyed.

At some point I think I saw this for sale for $155k. Now listed at € 199,000.- here:
http://www.autoscout24.com/Details.a...000&asrc=st|fs

What does this mean? Land Rover Defender 109 Longnose 1 er von 2.

One of two? They built two of these?

Yes, they built a second one with a hard top and matte paint called the "Aqaba" which is kind of sad Lawrence of Arabia fanboy stuff.

I still want to build one, but my new idea is to install a Rolls Royce B80/B81 straight 8.
