    @James Lowry you are correct, I thought exactly the same thing, it sounds like a WRC engine :nerd:

    Bit of digging later and I found this pic which explains a lot.

    I noted the FMIC in the video, which was kind of a deal breaker for me. Not very period correct. Npt really into if this is serious competition or more show, as stage times varied quite a bit.

    Agreed @tekkerchrede Im not sure exactly what happened to the proper engine in this car but the car was only being driven in a demo class so not competitive.

    Guys I had the pleasure of visiting BGM last year and had a close look at the mighty N555 WRC.
    BGM did an upgrade on the GpA cars for some customers back in the day with the front mount etc but all the original pieces are still with the car
