THE BORZOI'S CHASSIS
Constructed around a box section steel spaceframe, the Borzoi joystick prototype was originally fitted with an injected Peugeot V6 engine of 2.8 litres, giving approximately 200hp.
The car had a double wishbone independent setup, with disc brakes all round and a hybrid twin coil rear, and rubber cone front suspension.

Weighing in at 1,600lbs, the 0-60 time was impressive at around 4 seconds. A top speed of 170mph was limited by the final drive ratio. A Renault electronic three speed automatic gearbox was eventually fitted, mated to a more sedate 2.5 litre unit.
