    Ah the legendary wildcat. It has appeared on TG a few time already. I've sat in a real one and trust me you'll never be ready for the kind of performance it delivers.... it's a beast!

    Its one mean off-roader something like a Mitsu Pajero Evolution.

    Heres a lil something from the links you gave as people are a bit too lazy in opening links.

    The Frame:
    The advanced tubular spaceframe is race and computer designed, using high strength tubing in the roll cage and main braces, means the cab is both strong and extremely safe. Incorporating the damper mounts as an integral part of the frame, gives a highly rigid and stable skeletal base.

    STYLING - The Wildcat could be described as extrovert and purposeful in its appearance,
    far more so than any of the other 4WD production vehicles available to date.
    All the curves and scoops within the body are placed for beneficial purpose.
    The entire external body of the Wildcat is G.R.P. Composite . This material has many benefits, its strong, light weight, flexible and has good anti corrosion properties.
    A minor bump on a G.R.P. panel will usually fair better than on a steel or aluminum counterpart.

    SIDE SCOOPS - Designed to draw air from the body to cool the dampers, giving optimum performance in the extreme temperature of competition.

    BONNET SCOOP - Designed to draw cold air from the wing to cool the front dampers and add extra cooling for the front mounted engine.

    SIDE VENTS - Cut into both the wings and the door these act as exit points for the excess hot air created by the dampers and more importantly the engine.
    ( If an engine is a few degrees in temperature over its optimum running temperature its BHP performance can be dramatically reduced)

    ROOF SCOOP - Available on the Wildcat Signature this has been designed to draw the updrafted air from the windscreen, the air is accelerated over the roof to internally sculpted cowling which is then forced directly onto the rear mounted radiator.

    LIGHTS - The rear lights are place high up the body for maximum visability for road or race.

    ACCESS - The Wildcat has been designed for maximum access to the engine, coolers and dampers by having the wing tops incorporated into the bonnet . The rear of the vehicle can be completely lifted to gain access to spares, dampers and fuel cell or engine depending on the model.
