Default dna 60's style new model

some info for you guys..
late last year there was an article in a kit mag about dna offering a design/ build service , come with an idea or a sketch and they can make it for you,
spoke to dna at a show a couple of months later and we agreed to do something
I like the old style ferraris , to me they are more timeless in design and you get a bit more acceptance from other car enthusiast than a modern car with a poor performance

my budget was strict so we banded about ideas and we settled on a Ferrari 250 California, ( ferris beuller car )

there was obvious constrictions,
1. the U.K. rules for cutting up a car
2. a single doner
3. my budget
so what evolved is the photos above so far, it's based on a bmw z3, reasons being

1. availability world wide
2. loads available cheaply , well in the uk anyway, I paid £800 for my doner car
3. range of engines from 1.9 - 3.0
4. tuning options are vast with aftermarket products a plenty

it was going to be a one off car for me only but as we went along interest was gathering and dna asked if I would sell kits
DNA were keen to try out new methods of producing and moulding cars which I was happy to let them get on with what they know best
using the new methods cut down the time by months so will make the cost of the kits to be the cheapest entry level DNA
and still get dnas excellent panels and fit and finish

kits will be available, prices are not finalised yet, got to get better prices on wire wheels and make sure there enough stock of door handles ,rear lights etc,
dna like to provide a complete package so the builds are really straight forward and no delays in trying to source parts,which make a quicker build,

Quality looks excellent - really like that the separate sill panel is hidden and the depth of the door has been increased. Also like the stance and the wheels sat properly up in the arches.

Very keen to see price too but know DNA were never cheap!

Can you confirm the donor is not a 1.9 pre-face lift with narrow axle? (thinking in terms of rear wheels sitting in the arches)

I know there are months before its finished but can we have some better photos of it please.
The Gel coat looks thick and shiny and DNA do make quality kits but it does come at a hefty price.

Add a decent donor and all the kits, paint and details and your over 10k before you know it

Amazing. I too would like to see an interior conversion option. I can see myself looking for garage space to construct one of these.
