Kyle Kloewer Nov 10, 2012
WTF, 55kg? Has to be a typo
Dillon Magee Nov 09, 2012
Actually, maybe not.
Dillon Magee Nov 09, 2012
That has to be a typo.

What the chassis weighs 55kg and its made of stainless steel and aluminium. If it weighs that much it made of cardboard
Description: The GRP-made body is a tad heavier at 57kg and can be completely removed in five minutes. All in, the Sport 1000 has a curb weight of just 400kg and thanks to an aerodynamic body developed in the wind...

BMW 180hp engine
Richard Nichols Nov 09, 2012
Nice, but I would much rather have a radical or the new(ish) Caterham sp300.
Daniel Eads Nov 09, 2012
That's a lot of downforce!
Justin Routh Nov 09, 2012
CBR1000RR motor for me
Bryan Horowitz Nov 09, 2012
How much... I gotta have one
Carlton Sofocusedon Green Nov 09, 2012
Ill take mine with a Suzuki Gsxr 1000 engine
Michael Davidson Nov 09, 2012
I was building a go kart with a GSXR 600 engine on it, so I can't even imagine how fun and wild this one will be.
Jared Oteri Nov 09, 2012
Really fast track oriented......... Go cart lol
Nodnarb Ydil Nov 09, 2012
Haha wing
Nodnarb Ydil Nov 09, 2012
A wing is functional and generally much larger. A spoiler is usually not functional and flows with the body. It's safe to call this a Wong
Eric Anthony Nov 09, 2012
Spoiler? That's a Wing
Alex Medvedev Nov 09, 2012
Needs bigger spoiler hahaha jk
Ben Webb Nov 09, 2012
So apparently this is road legal
Daniel Eads Nov 09, 2012
It looks like it's about to fall off at any moment.
Alex Medvedev Nov 09, 2012
Hella downforce
Sam Sexton Nov 10, 2012
very ugly
Jorge Gonzalez Nov 10, 2012
How about one of those spoilers for your clean ass celica?
Ian Ragsdale Nov 10, 2012
I would rather have a Factory Five 818 for $15,000, including the wrecked WRX donor car.
Alex Medvedev Nov 09, 2012
What a joke on the price
Trent Griffin Nov 09, 2012
They start at $32,000....smh
Michael Davidson Nov 09, 2012
They have to tear apart a $15k motorcycle just for the engine, so it will be well over that. Probably closer to 50k if not more.
Noah Gavurin Nov 09, 2012
if they charge any more than 15k for this, its not worth it
Taylor Addison Nov 09, 2012
@michael It looks like some sort of Renault?
Michael Davidson Nov 09, 2012
What the heck is that silver car in the back????
Logan Delony Nov 09, 2012
And toss banana peels! :3
Darian Vorlick Nov 09, 2012
As long as I can throw blue shells and collect mushrooms for speed boosts, I'm good.
