Nice to see they've kept the chrome bumper on. Not sure what the Bugatti grills needed for but nice twist. Classic style ,modern aerodynamics. Low and wide

Having just come back from a week long trip around Germany visiting more car museums than I care to mention I have fallen in love with this:



Wonder if Chris fancies branching out into kits to fit a Beetle chassis?

I would like Chris to build me a robot that could do all the shitty fiddly jobs on my build. Come to think of it that would be most of it!

Mmmmmmmm perhaps not.............

Don't laugh. A 5 door lotus exige tribute. Love the flowing design and thin vertical lights and wide arches. I've been looking at it for a while . The Mrs couldn't moan then as it has five doors which would have poppers put in the rear doors so no door handles. Raised door panels. 16+17inch alloys lowered to match the exige. Only difference is i would have a ford fiesta grill l

Thanks Mr Towed found that and another company in the US. They look stunning but are way out of my price range. I suppose by hard top MX250C looks a bit like this, albeit that the engine is in the wrong end.

I wonder if the Porsche could be made to fit on this



The prices seem to be dropping below 6K and they should handle ok

How about this Ferrari Monza replica on Ebay.

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2012070203...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

Maybe on a TVR 350 V8 wedge chassis?

I wonder if that porsche could be fitted to a boxster ?

What I'd really love is a jaguar XJ13 - maybe that could be fitted to a boxster with the mid engine layout?

I just purchased a complete set of molds for this body. Looks like it will be a fun winter if my health holds out. 2 heart attacks this year.

That's nice, where do you get a windscreen from, though?

Very pretty car and I love those Cromodora alloys. Reminds me of the Ferrari P4.

Good luck with the health thing, hope all is well.

I wonder if you could use these guys to shorten the mould development.

Take in a model of the car you want to build, get them to knock out a polystyrene model and slap a mould off that.

The other thing you could do is scan a car and then modify the file to make the car fit your donor.
