I read old Wheeler did not want to sell them becasue they are just too powerful.

In Evo magazine they stated that they still havent confirmed the exact power rating and the Chairman doesnt find it at all practical infact says "completely pointless as a road car" Strong words from a power hungry Sports car fanatic

Article also mentioned that they had a Speed 12 on a dyno rated 1000bhp and it snapped before a complete reading was taken.

Quote "I knew within 300 yards that it was a silly idea.Over 900bhp in a car weighing just over a ton is plainly ridiculous on the road. It doesnt matter what gear you are in ,you just couldnt get to use the power"

"If someone comes to us and still wants to buy one I can usually talk them out of it,given time"

These are the spect which i have found, sorry about the mess. xxx
