I saw that too! There are a couple more pics on his facebook page. If you search time attack on fb the owner has posted a comment on one of the pictures (his personal pics are set to public so there are more to find).

Mid mounted 800bhp Roger Clark built Subaru engine. I'm looking forward to the full feature!

More info stat! This thing looks like an animal and it puts my car to shame. 850hp, 6spd sequential w/ flat shift, and also a fairly nice areo setup at first glance.

Thats about as different as you could get from the first one. from what i remember off the car its a old f5000 chassis with a grp bug body mounted on top. it was built and raced in special saloons in the late 70's early 80's. you had to keep the same basic layout of the car so beetles, type 3 and the odd skoda would turn up with full on race chassis under them.

It looks like it´s based on the "Fun Cup" racing series cars.Fiberglass body,tube frame and the series cars have Golf engines in them with 130bhp.This one is truely awesome and represents what the Fun Cup series should be..
