Looks like it uses a very small V8 engine. You can see the spark plugs on the sides of the engine. There's also a bunch of radiators everywhere. Not sure how much of an actual running model it is, since it has a steering wheel?

I don't really know anything about it, but sure looks interesting as hell.

I read in a street machine magazine about a sprint car model that runs a 1 cubic inch V8, maybe this is the motor?

looks to me like a model of a Chaparral race car from the 60`s, and the v8 motor has been out for quite some time.

It's a McLaren Can-Am from the 60's, the Chapparel had that moving wing to aid in braking. I wish the site had info. Can't be bigger than an 1/8 scale judging from the soldering station in the background.
