    I always thought It would be awesome to take a higher mile rough 550 and turn it into a road going GT1.

    With the exception of the car not having a sequential shifter, John Tirrell's 550 GT sounds a lot like Colin McRae's Prodrive 550 at Le Mans...

    I have some vague memories of some cars transformed that way - maybe by Prodrive; there was an article in an old issue of evo magazine (I should look for it, it's somewhere at my home).
