    Too much gas.
    Lots of go, but why not a Welcome to Ariel Atom which would be much more fun. I mean shit neither of them will be driven in wet conditions...

    Do all of that for under $20,000. Thats cheaper than a Civic Si. Win imho.. assuming you can find someone to insure the thing.

    The kit is ~$20k. Car costs between $30k and $40k depending on parts, paint, and wheel/tire combo used.

    The car is a Ferrari killer. Factory Five puts out some mean machines with this one leading the pack. Honestly the weakest components in their kits are the donor parts.

    That being said, I LOVE this car. I will own one in my lifetime. Of course, if money flows in, I'll own one of each Factory Five.

    Almost forgot, on top of all the performance aspects, this car gets better mpg than a Corvette. 30+ highway.

    Go for it!!!

    What exactly do you guys not like about it(for those that say no)? It looks decent, but those performance numbers are great.
