Anyone else seen this? Looks exciting. I wonder if any of the assemblies are available separately?

So cool but unlikely to happen. $250k or more.

I was sworn to secrecy about this six months ago, and I think it will happen. He is very serious about it, and so far he is finding the funds to get it done.

It’s a big ask, A lot of hurdles.
Hope he can make it happen.

My feeling is, to make it viable, may have to offer it as kit car versions aswell. Not only can buy a complete car can also buy the chassis and do the rest yourself.
If he can supply parts that can be made to fit originals, that would also help.

He has been asked about manufacturing parts for the original cars, but nothing on the new one will fit the old one.
