In the Competition: The car built by a farmer that put in check to the WRC

Can provide for the script of the blockbuster american or even to the plot of the eighth installment of the “Fast & Furious”, however it is a very real story. Andrew Burton is a farmer in uk was able to build a rally car you could even put against the ropes to the more advanced World Rally Cars.

But is this Peugeot 306 with paints more than proto or car RallyCross hiding inside a heart of a beast. This abomination, which caused in the islands of terror and admiration in equal parts, was mounted on a V6 Cosworth 2.9 liter (from the cars) that exceeded the non-negligible 400 HP of power.
