Default Donkervoort bonnet/scuttle overlap IVA friendly?

Howdy all i have just seen a real funky idea on a donkervoort. The bonet and scuttle is oversided about 20mm this allows a bit more elbow room and a tad more inles plenum space. I would love to do this as it would allow me to use a Viento scuttle and windscreen (i belive...).
Anyhow here are some pics. Do you guys think this would be iva friendly?

Humm talking about knocking up a set of stuff.... Im going to need cyclewings and rear wings that fit 18" wheels. So might have to give you a ring at some point and see if you might be interested. Looking for the same thing as the pic above. The wheel arch to follow the chassis curve then go down the wheel size. Those rims are 17/7.5j with 225/45/17's, Im going to be using 18/7.5j with 225/40/18 so quite close to that size.

Either way it will be interesting to see what it looks like.

Funny you should say that Alex my steel trailer arches turned up friday afternoon, I can now start playing with some designs for 15" and 17"+18" rims. The flare of the arch from the outer edge to the body work could throw up some interesting shapes though if the body work is followed exactly, might need to change the radious alittle.

Hi

If someone decides to start making a nosecone Donkervoort style and the rest of the body, it interests me, or if you know of a supplier. I appreciate in particular the line of the Donkervoort D8:

What do you think?
