...in rural Wisconsin. I saw it at a Zero to 60 Garage (nice guys, too) when I was going to my grandparents house. Even my grandpa asked if he could drive it; they declined.

I found some more photos of it on another forum: nasaforum.com

Looks....slightly cool. Couldn't imagine why you'd want to drive it though?

I would drive that thing as much as I could.

That shop has crazy wicked cars. I've seen there: M-B Mclaren SLR, Ferrari 288 GTO, a rear Shelby Cobra (iirc 289FI).... All in a town of 2000 people in rural Wisconsin.

V8, Webers, and a bundle of snakes. Nothing sounds better.

Definitely cool and not something I'd expect in rural Wisconsin.

I see exotics almost everyday. Within a five mile radius of my house there is a Superformance dealer (with drivable copies of everything), a Ferrari/Maserati dealer, a Porsche dealer, a Tesla dealer (actually Tesla headquarters in the same cirlcle) and several specialty shops that cater to the makes listed above. Unfortunately, I have not procured test drives at any of these places.

If those are webers, its not their carbs. It was definitely fuel injected. The hoosiers with the knock off rims are nice too.

Yeah, you're prolly right. I didn't notice the fuel rails. I bet it sounds as good as it goes anyhow.

Seriously? Do you look at Victoria's Secret and say "why would anyone want to boink that?"

I would. Everyday. The car, honey, I mean the car.

Draw a triangle from Sherwood to Manitowoc to Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin. What a mecca of sports car guys + the cheeseheads over in Madison too.

I hope to retire in this general area. I love Road America and the entire Kettle Moraine area. Call me a FIB - but I still love this area.

I should try and compile a list of every car that used these. It would be a long one.

ISO daytona, numerous abarths, lambos and ferraris, the GT40 and the stratos are just the beginning. Everybody dipped into that parts bin

That thing looks bad ass! Sounds it too.

AE86 hatch and Lotus Esprit turbo use the same tail lights.

If I had a choice between a Ford GT and one of these, it'll be a tough decision. Fort GTs are holding their value, it seems. What's the price of one from Superformance?

Naw, forget it! This is just cooler!

Wow. Cosmetically, everything is just right there. Pure sex (the forbidden kind )

That exhaust looks AWESOME peeking out like that.

I know the purists hate on kit cars, but whatever--that car is a beauty, period.

Sorry but an AE86 doesn't even come close to using those lights.
