    Could this be the perfect donor for a 458???

    How about a peugeot rcz as a donor for a 458? It almost has the same wheelbase, long front and short rear overhang, cabinforward look, sloping nose, etc. It might have a few points that need to be changed but those would be minor. The only drawbacks are that it is a front engined car with small 4 cilinder engines and that they are maybe difficult to find outside Europe. The reason that i chose this car is that it need minor cosmetic changes (framestretch, and structural modifications are forbidden over here).

    I know that there are going to be diffrences, but i think that the rcz is a better donor than for example the cougar based dn8 (my personal opinion). I live in Belgium and we have very tight rules about carmodifications, that is the main reason that i chose the rcz as a possible donor.

    I know that the windshield might be a bit different but in general i think it could be an ideal donor, better than for example the cougar based dn8 (it is an amazing kit and the guys from dna have done an incredible job but in my opinion they have used the wrong donor) I live in Belgium and over here we have very tight rules about carmodifications, that is actually the main reason that i chose the rcz
