I clicked the BUY button. I'm using my Wife's computer. She's been asking what I wanted for Christmas.

$33K is very reasonable I think. It would need the biggest engine option however, maybe even an American BIG BLOCK.

No, the 6 litre V12 out of Aston Martin's DB9 would do just fine.

Super cool. England has always had a large number of DIY kit cars. Lotus builds part of the Tesla I think. Something about England's Tax code got this started.$ 33K sounds to cheap ,can't to much for that money. I would sure want to see and drive one before buying.

I always wanted a copy of the Mercedes 300 gull wing. Tony Ostermier built them in Gardena Ca. I almost bought one but after I drove it changed my mind.. Nice to look at awful to drive. He wanted $80 K for a coupe. They sold for about $200K used recently.

Good thing I didn't buy. Mercedes now has a copy right/art thing that on the 300Sl they are enforcing. They will seize your replica and destroy it. How that works in this country I don't know yet but I sure would not wish to mess with a mad Auto company.

That's for sure. When I saw that the cool factor went way down for me.

In the good old days in the UK, there was purchase tax on complete cars but not on spare parts. So kit car manufacturers shipped you a crate containing all the spare parts needed, with or without an engine (usually the Ford side valve affair). You assembled it for an effectively duty free car. Tho early Lotuses were one of several. New tax regulations and vehicle certification procedures put an end to it.
