As track machines, buying and having one of these built makes a lot more sense than racing something not old in technology but old physically.

Weight was low, but power was lower—in most cases, less than 90 hp ever left the engine bay, and the slowest versions of the poor car didn't even make forty horsepower at the crank, let alone the wheels.

Every panel, frame rail, tire tread, tail light, side mirror, window, and of course engine component is identical to the original racers in every way.

53 pounds per corner.

At least this kit comes closer to making an improvement on its donor car's looks than the Belaro does. Mud.

But there's a reason those supercars do it that way: for a performance car with an internal combustion engine, it's the best layout, period. The Lister Bell is another kit car replica that's far and above the better car when compared to the original. Beach Buggy. This is the same engine used in various high-performance Lotus cars, for example, and is often swapped into MR2s whose owners want real power without turbo lag. It's certainly an attention getter, butterfly doors and all, but the attention a March Hare's owner would draw is likely fifty percent curiosity and fifty percent revulsion. The engine, of course, wasn't the only dismal part of these little boxes of poverty, as the power plant alone is a good reason not to build another car around a 2CV. Take the road less traveled.

Features 15" of total wheel travel with 8" droop and 7" bump. 1st Place: Mazda Miata Not to mention, the selection of modern Ford V8s available to put in it is much easier to live with than the solid lifter lumps of the old days.

Optimized suspension setup for ideal off-road wheel frequencies, wheel rates, camber curves, bump steer, Ackermann geometry, and caster. Those who built the kit likely were already of age when the boxy '80s S10 was introduced and so see it as just a boring shape.

14" of ground clearance to satisfy your go-anywhere attitude. Original VW Beetles were the original massively popular base for these bodies, but more recently, other cars like the Fiero and even the MR2 and the Boxter have been used. That's what Ultima exists for, and the tiny British company has been succeeding in that front for a very long time now.

The originals were downright dangerous machines, but thanks to modern suspension, brakes, and tires, the Roadster can keep itself on the road with much more ease. Ice. An expansion to the proven Exocet chassis with new ABS side panels and optional steel bulkheads. 1st Place: Mazda Miata The Vario isn't the worse car on this list, but it's far from the best, even considering its low cost. 1st Place: Mazda Miata The front clip kit is actually quite close in mimicking a classic Ford's body while on the frame of a malaise-era Ford Thunderbird. While Factory Five has been selling proper kits of V8-engined muscle cars for years, when it came time to release something for the new generation, they decided to take a WRX and put it backward into a mid-engined all-wheel-drive sports car for less than 20 grand.

Here are 10 Pics Of Kit Cars That Make No Sense (10 We'd Actually Buy). Motorsport replicas are one of the best types of kit cars, and if one buys from the right company, one can get not only a hot deal but also a scorching car.

But one has to remember, for every pristine Factory Five, there are several companies that sell kits like what you see above. But for every one of these masterpieces, there are a dozen companies who sell a badly made chintzy bodyshell built to drop over a chassis from a car undeserving of being made worse by said bodyshell. If they're actually similar to the real thing in any way, there's something mildly impressive about that, but obviously, the car above is more than a little bit divorced from a Ferrari Enzo by looks alone. These guys were generally fanboys back in the day when these monsters actually roamed racetracks looking for their next victory and since have grown up and gotten the cash to do it themselves. The GTM is perhaps the extreme of this concept, as it's a bonafide supercar that can be ready to go for thirty grand. Not bad for a kit people can buy for less than the cost of an up-optioned Honda Civic and can build themselves in their garage. The car in question with the Evo200 kit is the RS200, the famous Group B rally car that continued to dominate rallycross races after the series it was built for was shut down due to excessive death and destruction. The Roadster is Factory Five's take on the infamous Shelby Cobra, a car built with the simple ethos of the biggest engine in the smallest car. #exocetrace #exomotiveexoc, Finally, some dry laps today! This package is truly the ultimate choice for a no-compromise off-road suspension with enough wheel travel and ground clearance to do some serious high speed off-roading and still be streetable.

At the very least, it's most certainly original, but originality and beauty are very different things. 300 horsepower in a 2,000-pound car sounds pretty good. This package is truly the ultimate choice for a no-compromise off-road suspension with enough wheel travel and ground clearance to do some serious high speed off-roading and still be streetable. The stumpy, ugly look of the exterior is less than reassuring, and the company's website is missing supposedly easily accessible details for engines, performance, and so on. That's pretty crazy—in a bad way. Stock Miata-based components translate to a wide variety of choices for both new and used parts from a multitude of vendors across the world. The 818C, a rough analog to something like a Porsche Cayman, could set you back less than twenty thousand dollars all in, including the Impreza donor car. Speaking of knockoff fiberglass, EasyRods doesn't just produce displeasing kits for catfish Camaros but ones for '90s Thunderbirds as well. But the kit ends at the pillar and the distinctly square body shape of the Thunderbird are pretty hard to mistake for anything else. More durability and protection so you can go off the beaten path.
The actual car made about nine, which makes the later versions that presumably power this roadster sound monstrously powerful at 30 horsepower. That kind of power in a car that weighs less than an original Miata is absolutely terrifying in all the best ways possible. Yet, even when there are many creating monstrosities out of formerly good cars—or at least not painfully ugly ones—there are a few whose kits will redefine what many think they can build. Some of these cars are painfully authentic replicas of the great racers of old, literally pulling their bodywork from the same molds as the originals and having every bolt and part underneath that bodywork made exactly to the original car’s specifications. Sand. And that’s if the owner isn’t trying to pass off a re-bodied VW Bug as an Aventador.

2nd Place: Mazda Miata The most LOL-worthy things the Internet has to offer.

The Evo200 is essentially the same car underneath the bodywork pulled from only slightly modified molds, meaning this is a four-wheel-drive mid-engine rally car—tube chassis, jump-capable suspension, and all. The high end of motorsport replicas is a more than a slightly harrowing place.
