This has an 1108cc Renault 4 engine in it. This particular one has a big valve head, lightened and balanced bottom end and rods, and a reprofiled camshaft. I've had over 110 mph out of it.Zelandeth wrote:Oh that's sad to see, looks like a lovely car too.Audi_Mike wrote:£10k will buy you a burnt out DRK (one of only 59 ever made) and enough left over to rebuild it!
At least the fire was put out pretty quickly so it sounds like the car can be saved. What engine do these run?
I'm waiting for the insurance assessor to come this week and see what he says. It needs for sure all the engine ancillaries, brake master cylinder, gear linkage, all fuel piping, carburettor, battery and dizzy replacing. It needs a complete rewire of most of the front end, then it needs the engine out, the bulkhead aluminum sheet removing or blasting and cleaning up, and a front end respray. It won't be cheap as it's all glass fibre, wood and aluminium and it's presumably more skilled than just flopping a couple of steel panels on.
