I was looking through pics of the latest Canberra hillclimb, and amongst the field was an Ignis Sport and GTi. Pretty cool. Then I saw this:

On first glance I thought it was a series 4 RX7 with the rear glass missing, but on closer inspection I noticed it was a GTi - at least the front 2/3rds! Then there's the engine mounted in the rear. I don't suppose anyone has details?

It's about 3 seconds quicker than a lightly modified GTi around the Canberra circuit. It does 57 seconds, and anything under 60 is considered quick-ish. Towards 50 seconds is damn quick, and under 50 seconds is typically open-wheeler territory.
