Sadly no longer mine, this is my Maestro T16 turbo. Used a transplanted and forged engine from a Rover 620ti. Standard-ish looks concealed 280+bhp and 300+lbft torque for lots of fun, both on road and track:-

That would be Andy Nicholls. Same set-up as mine with a T16 engine but much more developed at about 650bhp, IIRC. Car was white first and then re-sprayed blue with 'AN Racing' decals all over it.

Mine was actually the first T16 Maestro in the UK, built in 1996 and shown on 'Top Gear' shortly after that. 8)
