This is the first time I see dual shock absorber used this way. Nice work. Although most of the aesthetics are non-functional, I can't help but applauding the diversity in elements used. I see you used a lot of flex axles for curves and windshield. How rigid is the model?
I had to use dual shock absorbers because turned out single shock absorber would not hold weight of the completed model. Using second absorber this way allowed me to avoid redesign of the front suspension. =)
Some parts of model are flexible, like bumpers and front part of the roof. In the same time the base of the model (stuff that in between front and rear axles) is rigid, since i used technic bricks instead of beams.

I especially like the engine bay detail
Is that a little turbo i see?
I was able to put turbo under the hood, as well as intercooler inside front bumper. But i failed to build full intake manifold and exaust. =(
