XPower rally car

200bhp 6 speed box. 1.6 - how comes they can rally 1.6 ZRs when they don't even sell them as a production model? does that mean that these super 1600s are actually Rovers on their homologation papers?

Tried to get some pics of the lush carbon doorcards but they didn't come out, shame

It actually is a 25 and not a ZR.

The ZR is actually too long for the regulations, so they used a 25 with the trim on the bumpers.

You should have heard that Viper when it was fired up!

It was an import and had a competiton exhaust fitted. Even at idle it broke the noise limits so imagine what it sould like indoors when they blipped the throttle.

I think if God had a voice it would have sounded like that. Cant remeber who it was, but one of the guys had a soundclip recorded on his phone. All you could hear at the end was this insane laugh.

Classic

A few but they are on my computer at home and I am at work at the moment so cant get access.

I am guessing if you hunt back through the threads there is probably one with all the photos on
