The donor '51 was shortened by 7.5 inches, while its roof got flattened, accompanied by a custom hood, deleted bumpers and drop-down plastic windows. The body got slammed to the ground, sitting on IndyCar-copy magnesium wheels and beefy Goodyears. The added trafficators and the yellow fog lights are there to enhance the European vibe.

Behind the leather straps sits a fully built 368 cubic inch V8 out of a 1956 Lincoln, complete with Hilborn fuel-injection, a modern ignition system, plus plenty of shiny brass and spark plugs to continue with the Le Mans customs. It sends 370 horsepower through a Spyker-style five-speed manual.
