There is a filler flap cut into the bonnet.

I would assume someone was going to try and get it road legal as there is a plate holder on the rear.

Apart from the bodywork not a bad attempted.

He's obviously used the full subframe complete with suspension.

Hope I make a better fist of the bodywork on my midi!! Although knowing my hatred of body panels its bound to be as much a pigs ear as that! Lol...

It's not the first time a mid/rear engined 7 style car has been attempted, but it's the first time I've seen one with a 5 cylinder longitudinal engine and transaxle
