Aaah OK thanks found the chapter. very little info on it is there?? I understand it was done as a racer for the Japanese market? As you say Phil no bodywork for it. Could make an interesting hillclimber maybe?

yes haven't found any further info on a quick check.
when I saw the pics of your post Pete and had a look into the book I first thought it was a prototype for the GTR but that looks different.

might be a good base for a hillclimber with decent motor and a different wheel / tire combination.

any idea where the vehicle is now?
