Car of the Month May 2011

Submitted by Pete Thorpe

My X1/9 has the Lancia volumex 2 litre twin cam supercharged engine (uprated to give 10psi of boost), ported head, Lancia Beta 2000ie cams and DCNF 40mm carbs mated to a Lancia Monte Carlo gearbox,

Lancia Beta brakes on the rear and Fiat Croma turbo brakes on the front. It sports Revolution 15 inch alloys, has nice wide Abarth style arches, roll cage, Leda coilover suspension and is painted in spectrum green. Power is approximately 200bhp with plenty of torque. It's done less than 150 miles in the last 5 years!
