If someone started producing a bare bones roadster with a very stiff suspension, less than 2700 lbs with 550-600 hp, do you think they'd sell at a price of say 50-60k? An open top roadster with a power to weight ratio better than a Ferrari F40. Not a super car, just a throw back to the 427 Cobra, a bare bones roadster with WAY too much power. If it were your ~55k to spend, would you spend it on that or a ZO6/996/M3/imported Lotus Elise?
The Panoz AIV isn't being made anymore is it? Weren't they about 60k?
my uncle has several lil 'kit cars' thats hes put together over the years. the one that i like the most is the '77 beetle that he gutted and dropped a rx7 engine into it. im not sure on the engine type but i do know its fast. He also has a rebuilt 911 that he has turned into a ATV thats pretty friggin fast
I think you're talking about a high-end Lotus 340R.
I'd just get a 210hp turbo conversion ($12,000) for my Elise ($30,000), and add carbon front and rear clamshells ($7,000) to save 36 lbs more. Then I'd go on a diet too.
I'm in Germany, so I don't have to worry about the importing aspect.
