    That's the body kit that Fchatter WILLIAM H has on his track car.

    Recently shown in FCA Newsletter, lets you go with wider rear tires.

    Maybe WILLIAM H can give more info.

    Is it possessed? Appears to be doing it's own thing with nobody behind the wheel.

    I've seen that car a bunch of times before. I think it might be a Koenig conversion. Pretty badass. I might even have an article on it somewhere.

    I also think this car is awesome.

    But this car has a pretty outlandish color, has a body kit, and some bling-bling wheels. Yet I don't here "RICER" being shouted about.

    What is the distinction?

    Granted, a lot of modded import (Japanese) cars are very distasteful to me. But some are pretty cool. Just curious where the line is drawn.

    here is a pic of it from Norwood's shop in Dallas from years back. Yes Koenig conversion. I have asked about this car before and got nowhere. I think somebody said the car might be in florida???

    That car was ruined, it was burned in a fire here in palm beach gardens Florida.

    The owner was a client of mine and it was featured in Road and Track.

    Forget the purple car... I am demanding information on the car next to it. I see what I think are drag chutes!

    Could that be the Norwood prepared 308 GTB with a 288 GTO body that broke some landspeed records? If so, this car was featured in an issue of Forza magazine.

    I saw that very car at FAF Motorcars at least 12 years ago. I have some pics of me next to the car. The guy who owned it here in GA was Buddy Wilkins, he had 3 Koenig TRs.

    Is is indeed a spider conversion done by Koenig Competetion of Germany.

    The chassisnr. is 75321

    See attached pictures; the 4th photo shows a person in the car but he's

    not the driver but the passenger (compare it with photo 3).

    I must say the engine looks pretty impressive seen through the plexiglass.

    Azzurro328, I would be very interested in that particular article!

    I wonder if this is where Ferrari got the idea to display the 360 engine? or was it from the 250TR?

    The picture from our shop was taken in 1989 I believe. The car was owned by a guy named Milestone form the east coast. We installed a Haltech on the car and a motor rebuild. It was set up with twin turbos and a blower, very complicated but well done. I did not know this car to have burned, but Buddy Wilkins did have a yellow Koenig wide body roadster with a twin turbo Koenig motor that buned in a house fire. We did a motor job and a Motec install on it in 1997, it was distroyed about a year later.
