Looks Like a Fish, Moves Like a Fish, Steers Like a Cow*

This magnificent Octan Space Racer – imagined for the iconic video game ‘Wipeout’ – comes from TLCB favourite David Roberts, who has very much taken the ‘more is more’ route with power, and the ‘it’ll be fine’ route with steering. Kinda like a Camaro.

To quote the builder “Built for speed, it was equipped with two massive engines from Whatt & Pritney. Much of the underside of its nose was given to heat exchanger pipes. This cooling array boosted the power of the engines considerably. If the designers had paid as much attention to the steering it might have been a successful racer.”

Yup, a Camaro then. See more at David’s photosteam via the link above.
