Neat.
I like the idea of the two-seater (although I don't know if Vanwall ever actually built anything with two seats). Their V12 models on those skinny tires might be *interesting*.

This appears to be a serious attempt at building a "practical" replica of a 50's vintage Formula 1 car. Although there's a reference to road use in the original press release and in the web site's description, the comment on track days caught my attention.

A lot depends on the price, of course. I doubt it'll be cheap.

I don't know Mr. Wolstenholme but I like the way he thinks - note the use of R5's in a vintage size.
