    Well she has been 12mths in the making and tomorrow I pick her up from
    having the engine rolling road/ mapped.
    Now I've got that little nervous feeling about taking her out on the road for her first
    Having said that I am looking forward to seeing the what power she now makes.
    It's has been fairly straight forward installing the rb25 engine and gearbox albeit it's taken a little longer than a standard restoration with the addition of modern a/c etc
    I've tried to keep the appearance of the car standard inside and out
    Here are a few photos [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    built purely as a road car so have gone with stage one tunning .
    We will see tomorrow what she is putting out the guys at rising sun
    Predict between 3-340hp.
    More than enough for me .

    I've changed my screen theme from Classic to Sinister - there is just too much orange on this site!

    Great car.

    Fantastic looking car. So is this standard suspension? Doesn't look lowered much (if any) and looks perfect stance-wise to me.

    Wonderful workmanship as well! Wouldn't mind seeing some pics of the interior when you have the time.

    I've kept the suspension hight stock just fitted gas shocks. My previous car had front lowering springs because the USA set up was to high but she would grind out over Sleeping policemen .
    I hope I've got the right balance this time .

    That sleeper look is perfect for a street car I think.

    Lots of surprised looks on driver's faces in your future.:cheers:

    What size are the wheels and tyres? Perfect amount of profile.

    Love the fact you have kept the exterior and interior standard. Why spoil a stunning, beautiful design with grotesque spoilers and bolt-on wheel arches? Looks the absolute business and a great colour too. Hope it drives as well as you hope. Enjoy!

    Car looks great and the RB25 makes it the perfect driver car IMO. Looking forward to seeing it at Lemanes.

    I agree, one of the nicest pic of a 918 car I've seen - in fact ANY Z.

    Don't care what monitor you are viewing on, orange yes, 918 noooooo !

    Seem to remember Fairlineguy mentioned it was a VW orange when he did his last one in the same colour. Brighter and less terracotta than 918, let's just call it tangerine dream, very very nice.......

    918 is so last year anyway, future is not orange, it is red........ ask Mr.Palmer, he's on trend for 2018 ;)

    No the future is 918, not orange or red:D
