Here's another new take on the 7. This time Ford V8 powered.

They did some interesting things with the body & frame.

But not LOW COST!

Expected production launch date was a couple of years ago.
But they have a line of custom clothes and accessories for their fans. :roll:

Looks slightly incomplete and I despise the headlamps.

Didn't those guys have a build log here for the prototype?

I hate to be cynical, but talk is cheap.

Cheers,

Whether they made it or not, there are some design & construction cues that might be helpful to someone.

Notice how much higher the side rails are.

How are they packaging the exhaust system for that V8? Does not show anything in the tech/specs. It's inside the body? DaveW
