We've seen our fair share of shooting-break concepts that have been jacked up a few inches to "redefine the sport utility segment." Most are pie-in-the-sky turntable models that are the brainchild of a forward-thinking designer, but the McRae team is finally bringing the concept to production.

The McRae Enduro was created by Jimmy and Alister McRae and is currently undergoing testing by the former, a five-time British Rally Champ. Powered by the same 240 hp, 2.7-liter diesel V6 found in a handful of Land Rovers, Jags and Peugeots, the caged monster will likely find a home in the garages of wealthy Middle Easterns and private teams that will be running the one-make Pirelli McRae Enduro Trofeo.

The "S-SUV" is currently being produced in race guise and more refined, road-ready versions are likely to go on sale later in 2009 at a cost of around £100,000.

      Or if you don't want to wait, you can just buy a BOWLER and have essentially the same thing:

      100k # doesn't sound too outlandish for a race-ready vehicle, as long as its put together to meet all potential FIA standards.
      Speaking of that 2.7L (lion) diesel- since it's really a ford motor, I wonder if Jag and LR will be looking for a new engine soon. Cheers!
