Did you ever consider putting 2 flat 4's together and having a flat 8? I don't think it would be too much room and that would definately be a "super car"

I totally love the idea of a mid engine car...please make it....please please please...:D

I think if you had really looked at my sketch you'd have seen that there is very little that is the same as the Ford GT. The Ford GT is not powered by a Subaru engine. Wait until I finish the side view and some better sketches before you jump to any comparison.

It reminds me of the ferrari 330 p3/p4 and the porsche 917.

I am really partial to the ferrari 330 p3 and p4, as well as the lamborghini muira. I got a chance to see a muira up close and the fender lines are the sexiest of any car I've seen.

nice drawing.

You should make the seating like a mcclaren F1. Driver in the middle, passengers to the left and right.

Most of my favorite mid engined cars are Ferraris, the 330 P3/4 being one of them, the the 206 SP is probably the sweetest. Actually my fender will be more boxy then those of the 330 P3/4, and be streetable (note, no turn signals on the P3/4). I have drawn several mid engine cars that I would have liked to build, but somehow never got around to it. I think the best one would have been the one powered by a Chevy 454 BB with 4 Webber dual downdraft carbs, that time I had the engine, but not the intake set up. I'm getting closer now, and with building a garage where I can mock-up things, I just might do it this time. here is a link to a photo of the 206SP it is the one with number 196 on the hood http://www.barchetta...002.Spa.001.jpg

I really looked at your sketch.... it looks like a Ford GT40. There are 3 angles to compare too. Take no offense as there is nothing wrong with how the GT40 looks or performs. I'm not the only one in this thread making comparissons :-p
