I'm not a big fan of kit cars, but this is one I've grown quiet fond of, mainly because its the closest thing to an exotic I'll ever be able to afford. Personally, I think it looks freakin killer. In short, it has a vette motor, Porsche gearbox, and cost (frame, body, etc...not the motor and tranny) for around $20,000. To have it road ready, about $60-$75,000 (or so I have read, although some go toward $100,000). They're supposively faster than a Veyron to 60 mph, and 100 mph (6 sec flat). What you guys think?

Nice car! I had to click on the kit order page. https://factoryfiveparts.com/orderfo...orderform.html

Looks like a decent kit.

I like the way it looks, though for that amount of dough I'd opt for a GTR...sorry, Godzilla bit me and hasn't let go...

I definitely like the looks. I even like the wing...it's appropriate for this setup. The road-ready price is kinda steep, though. But, if it can at least keep up with Z06 or GTR in the track, I'll be keeping my eyes on this.

Oh, yeah, I forgot, I want to see the Stig get a lap time on this.

I love this company. They are only an hour or so away in Mass. I would love to get a job there as an engineer, but I doubt they are hiring.
