Apparently it's fully street legal, uses a Kawasaki engine and also MR2 parts.

By the look of it there's a lot of custom parts, an non-mr2 parts only, but just goes to show what can be achieved when you put your mind to it. Would love to see some pics of the engine/gearbox arrangement.

Also apparently it is a two seater??

If you're suffering from lag, you're either in the wrong gear or the wrong car!

Actually now that I look at the picture there is a white one just behind him also so maybe they have a little club for these cars??

Good spot Anto!

I came across a youtube vid before where some guy wanted an Aerial Atom, but they where so expensive, he built his own from scratch in his garage using a new Camaro for the engine, gearbox and suspension etc. Looked and sounded incredible. DMV passed it and it was road legal.

Imagine all the power of a 6.1 HEMI V8 in something that is basically just a tubular frame buggy!
