Cool but bit to much of different eras for my liking

Hah streetfighter AW.

Oddly enough i was discussing doing streetfighter style cars with a friend the other day, what you can and cant get away with.

With some of the prices you see on TM you could probably make up the cost of the car in the parts you remove!

(Though id totally have replaced that side vent, those things are in all reality actually a good 2kg)

Ill have to dig up some old photoshops i have, got an AW11 with a big bug-catcher intake sticking above the roof, blower sticking from the engine cover like some strange mashup of AW11 and Blown V8 Culture. and another of my AW with a very wide bodykit reminiscent of the 80's Group b and touring cars.(wiiide arches with flat tops)
