Was up at Southam having my car set up on their Rolling Road and this was in the car park.

That looks like a giant set of wheel with a small Rebel on top of it.

I suspect the only bit of Rebel is the bodyshell??

I cant decide if the bonnet vents are for engine cooling or (more likely given the stance) it's mid/rear engined with rad(s) in the front? possibly a big bike engine?

It's one highly tuned well setup rebel - last time I saw this it had a very highly tuned 850cc and literally flew (it left a powerful BMW for dead !) - although by the looks of the back of the car that little 850 is gone and something even more powerful is lurking inside.

p.s. You've reminded me I need to make a visit to southam mini centre soon too!
