There was a Cosworth 5 which was rear engined, if you can find anything about it.

i spoke to a guy with a twin engined GTT, he'd had a front subframe with suspension turrets welded into the back of the car, i cant remember what he done about keeping the wheels pointing straight though, it was the grey car that always comes up on ebay.


also, i think this has to be one of the fittest 5's around. and its rear engined.
see what you can dig up on it

I know Bob @ CGB is making a twin engined R5.

Last time i saw it it had just come out the paintshop after all the welding in the rear had been finished. I'm sure he has plenty of information.
