I've seen the mock up picture, looks stunning. Hope the build gets posted up on here.
It's great to see other peoples builds, but seeing a new car being designed, built and best of all how to work around all the problems is the best bit of the forum.
I love reading Tribute's developments. The 250 was best, the start, the restart and the final result.

My first thought on seeing that was that Bernie and Leepu had been let loose on it.

Looks like a kit m3 to me. It would appear that without something to copy, thete is no flair. As fraser would say, Doomed.

Replicate has always been the easy route for lots of manufacturers ..DNA are excellent at their craft ..that's why I'm waiting to see more as the buck can often not tell the whole story ...
It's a shame they got hit so hard with the Ferrari stuff ...if they could have just kept their heads down a bit ..I think some amazing cars might have come out of their facility ...

What are we (kit car community and potential future enthusiasts) missing though??? If the only route manufacturers take is to replicate, due to belief that only replicas will sell, we then get customers thinking "I don't want a car that isn't a replica, as It'll never be worth anything"
This sad state of affairs leads to the joy of 'something different, something new' being a financial, rather than an emotive decision.
We may miss out on a truly enjoyable and exciting car if only replicas are seen as viable.

New designs that lean heavily towards the cars that many want to replicate MIGHT be the way forward !! ?

Well found indeed. The front is almost the same as an early picture that was sent to me.

The "inspired by" market will do well, the rebody style of build will be the future. IVA will slowly kill the traditional "build from the ground up" style kits in the end.
