Default New (to me) kitcar company

Just saw this after following a link that Tribute posted on their Facebook page.

This really appeals to me - not sure what I would do with the Caterham though

been around for ages as a kitcar not sure if it’s been rebranded or new management

looks great

but no idea what a 2cv power car is like ??


edit .. same guys running it from the 90’s looks to be a huge company now taking in 2cv spare parts , rebuilt engines etc

I think it depends on which engine is in it.
Anywhere from a claimed 9bhp to the heady heights of 29bhp.
A friend at college claimed to have turboed his to somewhere near 50bhp, but it blew up before I ever had the chance to seat dyno his claims!

bmw motorbike engine swap can be done for more power but it probably beats the point of a cheap effective donor … no more power is always good ha ha
