I remember this car being built and then it sat in Superspeed's showroom for years! It was a very very special car, badged up as an RS5700 and had been based on a new 3 litre GXL. My father owned the factory next door to Superspeed's and was at one time a small co-sponsor of Colin Hawker's DFVW! I spent many an evening in the Superspeed showroom and workshop!
Good luck with your project, it would be nice to see some photos when you are finished!
