The RS200 Replica
Finally, but certainly not least, is the ultimate RS200 Replica, the "200ME-a".
This car is a mid-engine, permanent 4 wheel drive version, with 6 speed sequential (interchangeable drop gear) box, remote transfer box and VC, double wishbone, double coil-over suspension, all powered by the engine of your choice up to 400bhp (and more if neccessary).
This purists version is only available in comprehensive kit (or part/fully built) fomat, with build budget easily approaching that of a Ford original (if you can find one).
The advantage of the "200ME-a" being ease of maintenance and readily available spare parts.
