Good to see this finished. I have followed this build from the start and enjoyed being a passenger and what a great car at the end of the build.
Regards Dennis

Thank you Gents.

I am going to try and get some walk around videos of the car and when the weather cooperates some driving videos posted on YouTube.

Thank you Bernhard.


As promised guys here's a compilation video of a few R2 shakedown drives. The weather hasn't been cooperating as much as we like. But, as long as the roads have been washed off by the rain and then dry(enough) we will be testing.

I'd also like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Be safe and healthy!

Cheers!


Nick

Hey, Nick. Highest compliments for a well executed and fantastically documented project. Thanks for all the "extra" effort on your part! Can't wait to see what's next in your shop...

That is really impressive. I hope this doesn't sound like an insult but it makes me think this should have been the latest Mustang. Something about the lines make me think Mustang. Very nice

Other guys have told me the same thing when the car has been out and about. You saw first hand in this thread how the car was born over 10 years ago. However, when I give a little back story to strangers some won't hear it insisting it's a Mustang mid-engine concept built by Ford...and that it's all fiberglass.


Anyway, thank you very much for the thumbs up! Here are some more photos. The paint is called 'Tempered Blue Metallic" inspired by colours you see in a HAZ(heat affected zone) zone.














And speaking about Ford concepts, we are currently building a 1940 Ford inspired coupe for a client based on a late model Mustang chassis.




The wireframe buck has just been finished and panel beating is just around the corner. I invite you to check it out on my YouTube channel where the build journey is being documented. https://www.youtube.com/c/iNVisionPrototypes


You can also find some Metelic R2 first starts, shakedown and driving videos.


Thank you again!


Nick
