Jakabi Design Abster • Anudimension GTB

Anudimension GTB

Keep an eye out for a couple cool new Brit body conversions to be featured in an upcoming issue. Our car guy in the U.K., Steve Hole, who publishes TKC Magazine, sent us some photos of two rebodies that have unusual donor cars. The Abster from Jakabi Design uses an MGF, a mid-engine car produced by MG Rover from 1996 to 2002. The body kit reduces the already light weight of the car, and it’s powered by a K-Series, 1.8-liter, inline four-cylinder engine that can be pushed to 200 horses if desired, Steve says. An interesting feature of the MGF is its Hydragas suspension, a system employing interconnected fluid and gas displacers, which provide a surprisingly compliant ride but can be tuned to provide excellent handling characteristics. The other Brit kit, the Anudimension GTB, gives a ’96 to 2004 Porsche Boxster the look of high-performance Porsche, the 911 GT3. A 2004 and later 987 Boxster can also be used as well, but requires custom fitting by the Anudimension. On a related note, we’ve come across LS engine swaps for the Boxster, in case you want to enhance more than just the exterior of the car and give it some American V8 horsepower. Both companies do not have U.S. reps as of this writing, but no doubt these rebodies could be exported stateside as auto parts.
