Trans Axle, is a custom built 4 spd running Nissan gears, R230 Nissan LSD with a 10" Winters R&P.

The Body is an exact copy of the original design, running the adjustable wing between the front fenders which was a big design change from the M8s, moving the radiator from the front to the hip side mount made this possible and improved the front grip greatly the added bonus was the hot air from the radiator no longer when straight into the cockpit. The huge rear wing is mounted in the same way as the original cars with the side fences that become the rear fins and the mounts inside the fin's that are also connected to the roll Bar. The engine is connected to the rear of the tub with a front engine plate, Tripods either side connect to the Bell Housing, The roll bar mounts to the inlet manifold and the structural sump ties the bottom of the car together and that is how the engine becomes a "Stressed Member" of the chassis, all the rear suspension is tied to the Trans and trailing arms from the tub.

The car has a Motorsport NZ Log Book and is Homologated with MSNZ for the Roll Bar.

The sale will include a second set of wheels with wet tyres, Full set of body molds, and the Patterns that all the alloy parts, ie Uprights, Bell Housing and Wheel Centre's were made from. Also another Trans option is available by negotiation

The M20 was the last Can-Am car from McLaren and as such was never offered as a "Customer" car and only 3 were ever built which makes them the rarest of the breed, The last one to change hands was sold at Auction in 2014 for US$2,000,000. This is not one of the 3 originals, but with the same specs and performance it will give the driver the same rush for a fraction of the price.

Reduced to US$150000
