    Anyone ever built one or seen one? I think it would be a neat idea. Not much on the web for a mondial race car other than a few old pics from way back when. I'd love to give it a shot if I could find the right car to build. I can't afford a challenge car yet, but you have to start somewhere, right?

    Not so sure about your statement of "way back when" as a Google search found a number of rather recent examples. Had a great time years ago building a rally car up but sorry, no experience prepping a Mondial.

    Wow that's more like it! I remember searching a while ago for mondial race car or something along those lines and all that came up was a few older (I'm guessing 80s) amatuer shots of what looked like a blue or silver car over in Europe. I haven't searched since then. This idea came into my head last night for some reason. So I guess I jumped before looking again. At least I have some more info to go off of now. Thanks guys!

    I've been building one for 12+ years. Sadly stalled mostly, due to long term health problems.
    I can hopefully give you whatever advice you need.
    Mine is fully stripped out, caged, Electromotive Xdi ignition, custom alloy radiator, electric water pump conversion, air con removed, digital dash, stripped down wiring loom etc etc...

    Here is mine. Bought recently (Oct 17th). RHD Perth Australia. I took it to the track on the weekend (Dec 2nd). Got a few problems but it was fun.... especially passing a 911!

    Great! I think you have a roll bar inside...? can you send pics of how attached...thinking of including one but would like to keep the rear seats (maybe a removal harness bar but a fixed rollbar)

    There was a tv show out of England that bought a Mondial track car and redid it for resale it was kind of like Wheeler Dealers but I can’t recall the name of the show. I remember one of the presenters was named Mario. I’ll see if I can dig it up on the web.
