It would need a lot of work, cooling systems, HV cabling loads more room needed at the back, chassis strengthening (to take the torque).

Then you might get the combined Motor/Gearbox/Inverter in.  :y

Your lot seem to know quite a lot about throwing a washing machine motor into an old car ;)

I'm a massive fan of the bolt in replacements that do no damage to the original car.

Want!  :-* :-* :-*

The washing machine would do wonders for my whites, too, I'm sure*.


* - unless it comes with traditional E-type oil leaks.

That's because its an engine replacement unit which pics up the engine structural points, its an interesting bit of kit to see in the under flesh..

I would rather like one of the new build D-Types......

As far as I can see on their website Jaaag are rather coy about how much such a conversation costs - any ideas Mr Fuse?

It's one of those products where if they said 50k plus the donor car, or 150k plus the donor car, neither would surprise me.  :-\

I watched last Sunday's Top Gear last night. I wish they wouldn't wreck rare cars  >:( I've only ever seen 1 Matra Bagerra (sp? ) and that was years ago when I bought my Cavalier Coupe in Pompey.

I watched a few episodes and found it to have all the childishness, but little of the warmth or charm of the old days of Clarkson/ Hammond/ May.
Maybe Im just getting too old for it.  :-\

Hats  off to Flintoff driving that buggy in Iceland.

Despite not wanting to, we have enjoyed this series. All too short.
