On the way back round to work, I was going over it in my head and thinking about how good it would look with some big wheels, a roll cage and the like.
Something a bit like a 90s touring car but without the stickers, and a little bit taller.
Engine wise though, they lack a little, 1.9tdi, 2.0 and 2.3 petrol boat anchors but then it came to me, the diamond in the rough, the VR6 engine left over from the vw/ford agreement.
This engine is perfect, 2.8 litres, six cylinders and a noise which compares to nothing else, it also proven to be capable of ridiculous power outputs, some of the tuners on the continent are getting nearly 1000hp from them!
The other plus point, as just short of 1000hp is too much for fwd, is that some of them came with a vw sourced 4wd system, which would help. Failing that, I suppose a big set of drag tyres would probably allow you to have the fastest MPV over the 1/4 mile.
Wonder if Renault would be willing to drag the Espace F1 out for a race?

I'm a bit gutted that the turbo technics kit won't fit now. There are a few options for the VR6, turbo conversions, Vortex superchargers and so on. I don't think it would be as fast as a Fiat Coupe' 20V Turbo powered Multipla.

I think it's an interesting idea. Worth bearing in mind that they are a heavy brute but as I said in the old thread, the seats weigh a hell of a lot and would double as a nice load lugger and tow car esp if 4wd.
