It features a muscly wide-body bodykit with hugely pumped wheel arches front and rear, a large wing at the back and a range of special vents and air intakes all over the body.

Under the bonnet things are just as flamboyant. There sits a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder producing a mammoth 450kW of power. Hooked up to an all-wheel drive system, the pocket rocket can crack 0-100km/h in just 1.9 seconds.

To finish it all off a Red Bull Racing livery has been applied, so has a set of chunky Cooper tyres fitted on some black racing wheels, while inside it’s stripped out and left with a full roll cage and bucket seats.

The car will be driven by DTM champion Mattias Ekstrom.
