Notes:- FW400 (Fw meaning "Featherweight" & 400 the weight in kgs) has an all Carbon fibre monocoque chassis which is up to 5 time stiffer than the standard space-frame. Lightening quick and handles like a dream although the straightcut gearbox is noisy. I believe not more than 10 were made so a rare car indeed.
