My next car will be one of these. Or at least it's on my wish list!

YES it's a car, and YES it's street-legal. See it in action here. See it just standing around looking good below :-)

Best thing of all? You can actually build the damn thing yourself. It comes in a mix-and-match kit - and with all the trimmings is a mere US$113,0000. Or at least that's the tally once I'd finished adding features.

So yup, the perfect commute-mobile found. And nope, haven't forgotten my first love - Landies. This one's just really, really zippy and horribly cool.

(hmmm... looking at those components, I'm wondering how much of them I can source/make myself...)
