Rhys Millen will run this dramatic Le Mans style car at this year's Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, as he bids to claim the record time.
The car will run in the Unlimited Class, which has no restrictions on tyres, suspension, drivetrain weight or horsepower.
It is powered by a 4.1-litre Hyundai Lambda turbocharged V6 engine, which will have around 675bhp. The car will weigh around 840kg.
Power will be distrubuted via active differentials, which allow a torque split of between 10 to 100 per cent between the front wheels, which will help Millen cope as the track switches between asphalt and the loose.
To achieve the low weight the car is has a carbonfibre body. It also has an active rear wing which rises in corners and falls on straights.
"We are building a car for today's road," said Millen "The car will have a sleek aerodynamic body, the grip of Toyo Proxy tires and the power and durability of a Hyundai engine. This is the package I need to break the record."
The record on the 12.42-mile course is held by Nobuhiro Tajima, who set a time of 10m 01.408sec in his Suzuki XL7 Hill Climb Special in 2007. Prior to that, Rod Millen - father of Rhys - had held the record for 13 years, with a time of 10 min 04.06sec.
This year's event is on 27 June.
