LMP360: How To Turn a Subaru 360 Into a Le Mans Prototype | Your $2000 Challenge Cars

Why just enter a car you bought for cheap into the $2000 Challenge, when you can enter a Subaru 360 turned into a Le Mans Prototype? That’s exactly what forum user nocones is doing after observing the $2000 Challenge for a number of years from the sidelines.

Most recently, nocones ran into some trouble figuring out the toe control mounts, though the whole project still looks plenty promising with fenders and wheels mocked up.

Be sure to check out nocones’s entire build thread to see how one makes an LMP car out of a lowly Subaru 360, and head over to the $2000 Challenge website to enter your car now.
