This was built subsequent to the McLaren F1, and you can see some F1 elements in it (driver sits front-and-center like the McLaren), but still, it's really a shame this was never produced. I'm sure someone here would've shoehorned that little 3.5 liter V-12 into a Mk2 by now; I bet it would fit too!








Make sure you watch the last 15 secs. of this video:

This is either a stripped OX 99-11, or a formula-style car based on the OX 99-11, it's difficult to tell, but either way it's the same 3.5 liter V-12 used in the OX 99. If you look hard enough at the photos in the first post, you can see what appears to be same front section under the raised hood of the car with bodywork. It also looks like the engine mounts directly to the rear bulkhead as per the specs shown above:
