umm...IIRC they aren't "doing" anything with the ecotec sc except placing it in a featherlight tube chassis to get those numbers. :D Originally (and still in ariel's european home) they're using honda JDM engines but switched to the ecotec to meet US emissions standards. :thumbs:

Don't think you'll ever see a roots S/C on a Kappa. I think the concept Sol is/will be the only one.

You can't mount a tranverse motor in a RWD car.
