That fiberglass hood was SERIOUSLY lightweight. Used all stock mounts, too.

MORE PICTURES HAVE BEEN ADDED!!!!11

Plus I am sad to report that there will be no more under hood shots of the TT until it hits the staging area. the hood was locked down again and they added this sign next to it.

Just like a USbody without the center groove... That's a trademark line on a USbody cowl, I think that's the only reason why they are there since the stock hood doesn't have that.

True but the lines on the AWD Beretta are smoother, or it looks that way to me. I like the smooth look, kind of like the slight cowl look the Corsi hoods have.

So did you buy it or what? :D

Oh, and I can't believe the typo with the 5.1 thing.. It was supposed to be a 3.3

No but the guy who did buy it knows about this site and the BS. He was pretty cool.

Congratulations on the purchase. It's a very interesting car.
You must be very proud to have this one of a kind!
I wonder how fast it is. Did you run it at Great Lakes dragaway?
It's inter-cooled via a water system for that as opposed to direct air.
I wonder how effective that is vs direct air.
A lot of engineering went into that car. I see a lot of parts are one of a kind.
Why did you take stuff apart? Did it run ok when you got it or was it preventative maintenance.
Is that a combo vacuum boost gauge on the dash?
Good luck with it. I hope you enjoy it.

Congradulations! Great find!
I saw a bunch of the photos, that's disappointing seeing some of that rust on the factory lines and a little underneath on the unibody. But the structure looks solid.

That's a unique 1 of a kind car, I'm glad to see its in a nice home!
