This Iceberg car was declared CAT D in August 2003 early in it's life, although properly repaired by a Renault dealer at the time, I didn't feel quite so bad modifying this one. The idea behind this conversion was to create a road useable mid engined track day car with more power, lower CofG and less weight than the V6.
