OK we are having a bit of a clearout so we can finally start on another 246, probably using the Ferrari Mondial 3.2 QV set up we have.
We have taken on board the many requests about using a more readily available engine but thought if we were going to build a show car then it needs to be Ferrari running gear. This will take some time due to all the other work we have on but bare with us as there will be another engine option available as well as possibly another chassis option although not necessarily a cheap option.
Anyway getting back to the point of this post, the old Karma Dino has been listed for sale on ebay, if anyone is interested. I know it is nothing like the real thing, it drives like a beetle but it does sound quite nice with the Alfa 1.7 boxer engine. Not only that but it is correctly registered as a Karma Dino on a 1970 registration and is therefore tax exempt, so no need for IVAs etc. Just a bit of work, then MOT and you're on the road.
The original idea when this was bought was to put one of our correct bodies on but I cannot bring myself to do it, you just cannot have a genuine looking Dino with a beetle floor pan.

We will start a new thread when the new build starts or just have a look at our facebook page.
