Default Lynx XKSS

OK, I'll kick this thread off. While not a "real" XKSS, this is a full alloy bodied car made by Lynx. In fact it is even rarer than the real car (but not of course the same value!) since I believe there to be but 11 in existence.









The car engine is much modified and is actually more powerful than an original, putting out over 300bhp and more importantly over 400 lb/ft of torque. Just don't ask about the fuel consumption.

Very nice indeed. The only one I have ever seen in the flesh is the 'Green Rat' and I posted a photo of an unfortunate occurrence in the thread on it. I really need to read up and educate myself on these. What are the engine mods?

Profiled cams, Venolia pistons at 9.5:1 compression, big valves and carefully balanced and put together. I had it done 10 years back and I guess today's price would be in the region of 20,000.
