If Ford had built that from day one, I'd have one in the driveway. Awesome job by the builder!

Beautiful. I'm a sucker for cars with number plate covers too. I'm ignoring the part where he said he has "an S2K". It's S two thousand.

According to the DVLA, the original 49 FXN is still on the road.

Pretty sure that Rolls Royce aero engines were all 6, 12 or 24 cylinder and that's quite clearly a V8.

Because "TUV" are party poopers

Originally designed to accommodate a 1,500hp 27 litre Rolls Royce Merlin V12 out of a WWII era Spitfire, the Bell Aurens Longnose was set to be revolutionary. Sadly the German road licensing authority had serious reservations about safety and left the designers with the option of using a more traditional 235 HP Rover V8.
