About this project

This project has been inspired by the fire breathing big BHP Group B rally cars that were banned in the mid 1980's. With a love for these cars in mind I'm creating a mid engine RWD track day car using a MK6 Escort as the base car and a Subaru Impreza turbo engine/gearbox to power it.

With the Subaru engine being quite light and having a low centre of gravity, (due to the flat 4 configuration) the car should have a good power to weight ratio and hopefully handle well, with a good suspension setup.

Stripped out and cut up.

The peugeot has been completly stripped out to a bare shell and the whole floor section with the bulkhead,suspension turrets and front chassis legs cut out, i have braced the shell to keep it nice and solid and bolted it to a perfectly square jig that i have made so everything can be aligned up nice and true later on. The next step is to completly weld in the subaru floor pan, bulkhead and engine bay section which to my supprise fits like a glove after a LOT trial and error trimming down.


  1. You should be fine. It is a small car but most cars are deegsnid to accomodate people up to 6 6 . My buddy is 6 tall and fits fine into his Impreza with few inches to spare.
