Boxy - correct, so that tells you it is not a production car - something a bit special.

As I said before - add all the answers up - once you do that you don't have much to choose from.

Clue: look at the shape of the bodywork

Well done Hano. All right - except engine is mid, but far back - for a reason

Hano WINS :!:

Well done - that will cost me another beer.

As to why the engine is so far back, unusually for a mid engine car the gearbox in front of the car. Reason: the car is 4 wheel drive.

This car is has one of the best sounding engines ever.

These were quite common on Finnish RC races when I was a kid. It was told that these were a bitch to handle but went like fuck.
