Hey Koen, is this for track or road? Definitly a weapon with that power, thou quite a big engine for a 23, I thought the Audi 1.8T i am planning was big for this car.

I'm building a Martyni 23 ( have been for 10 years - alomost finished ) The company ceased trading 2 years ago and the whole project was sold to a chap in California but I have never been able to track him down. The original owner of the project wouldn'y tell me who he sold it to. Didi you buy your 23 in USa or was it shipped from the UK? I can send suspension photo's if required

You know it's a bad day when the wheel's fallen off your race car and the trailer's been clamped :lol:

Nice looking car and thanks for the offer.
The Noble 23 is actually quite different to the Lotus 23 under the skin. Different suspension and chassis, different donor parts etc.. Mine is starting out to be fairly authentic except for the engine and tranny.

You guys are looking at probably twice the weight (engine etc.) and even more then that for power then a 23, so I would think it will turn out rather different. Despite the displacement, your closer to a GT40...
