I started building this car about two years ago. I have worked many years restoring classics and building race cars for profit. When I started this project, I had planned on using a Fiero chassis. After buying a used 1989 Fiero and beginning to chop it up, I came to the conclusion that it was a crappy way to go. So, I scrapped it entirely. I had bought the fiberglass body, and had it sitting there, so I decided to use my experience and help from other industry friends, and began constructing and tubular chassis. It turned out great, I used 1" and 2" steel tubing for all the framework. Then, to save on weight, I constructed all the panels with 18 gauge aluminum. Then I decided to go a little further and make the cockpit as quiet as possible. So I put double panels with insulation. On each side of the frame surrounding the cockpit is a layer of 18 gauge aluminum with several inches of insulation between them. The front suspension is a mustang II style coil over system. It is fully adjustable. The rear suspension is a five link custom built configuration with a coil over system and a rear control arm. I had planned on using a LS9 Corvette engine, and a Porsche G50/50 transaxle. I built the engine bay to accommodate. It is VERY large indeed. However you could choose any smaller configuration if you wanted. I also decided I could make the rear end of the car look a little better than factory so I redesigned and fabricated the rear panels including the rear bumper, and deck lid. This is a kit car and there is still a lot to be done, however the hardest parts are complete. The buyer of this project should know how to build cars or be willing to hire someone to build it for them. The wheels are Porsche racing rims from Victor Equipment Rims and the tires are all Nitto NT 01 315/35/zr18. They are absolutely huge! Included are a few extras like the power rack and pinion, steering column, Wilwood four piston super light forged brake calipers, pedal assembly, and a few others. I'm willing to crate the entire car and ship via common carrier at whatever the shipping costs are plus $500 for crating and packaging. Things to be done are drivetrain installation, final bodywork, trunk and engine bay panelling and details, door mounting, glass and interior. The interior body panels are included and will need upholstery. The pictures of this project are of the car as it sits right now. What you see is what you get. The reason I'm selling this is because of two things. First is I don't have the time in my daily life to finish it. It's taken countless hours to get it to this stage and with my new family and work, I just don't have the time. Secondly is I'm moving this October to another country and really don't want to take it with me or pay for storage. If you have any questions, you can call me direct at 540-221-5826 but please read this description before calling me. The car is located near Winchester VA. The body alone cost $4500, tires were $500 per tire, wheels were nearly $2000, and I lost track of all the other expenses. The doors on the car are only temporarily attached right now for alignment purposes. They will require hinge installation and final alignments. This is a great find for someone who loves building cars and has the means.
I will accept cash, cashiers check, personal check (car is released once check clears), or major credit cards or debit cards through PayPal
Thank you and happy bidding!

Lamborghini, not finished celebrating its 50th anniversary with special models like the Veneno, has subtracted two wheels for the next stage of the party. The BMC Lamborghini 50th Anniversary Edition Impec is the second go-round of the collaboration between Swiss bicycle maker BMC and the Italian carmaker, both based on linking the carbon-fiber framed Impec to the carbon-fiber bodied Aventador.
Tue, 26 Nov 2013 19:00:00 EST
Last year's run-of-30 Impecs has become this year's run of 50, each one built to order, and each costing 25,000 euros (about $32,000 US). BMC's special framebuilding technique is graced by a paint job unique to the model, Italian components and the same leather used in that taurean coupe. As with the car, you can order it at your local Lamborghini dealer and take delivery there.
If you're keen, the press release below can tell you what it will take to throw a leg over.
Lamborghini has launched a website for something it calls the Hexagon Project. The mysterious page asks that you submit your email address, and then it gives you a taste of glorious V10 engine noise, with the message: "Listen to your instinct. Discover the roar of a new creature from Lamborghini. That will be just the beginning."

But where is that wonderful noise going to come from? Since we don't see Lambo launching a front-engined, front-drive minivan in the near future, we're guessing it'll be found in the back of some low-slung, edgy super car.
In our minds, that leaves two candidates. The popular opinion, perpetuated by our friends at Jalopnik, is that this is the engine for Lambo's Gallardo replacement, rumored to be called the Cabrera. This is a sound guess, although the naming of the site, Hexagon Project, makes us think that there's more to it all than just the Cabrera's new engine.
The Lamborghini Countach was the dream car for many teens and pre-teens in the 1980s, but at least one Japanese man thought there was room for improvement. As the story goes, Ryoji Yamazaki had a dream of a supercar as a 13-year-old, and at the age of 41, he used his design studio, Art & Tech, to create the Sogna in 1991.
Yamazaki unveiled the Sogna at the 1991 Geneva Motor Show as a rebodied Countach with intentions of selling it in limited production, but thankfully - or sadly, depending how you look at it - the $1.6 million (1991 price) coachbuilt supercar never made it into production. The Geneva show car was a rolling chassis, and the only other example that was produced was a fully operational version, shown above, which was unveiled at the 1994 Essen Motor Show. This car from Essen is now listed for sale on James Edition for 2.38 million euros, or around $3.25 million USD.
With its oddball styling and kiwi green paint, the Sogna was likely doomed from the start, but it still boasts the Countach's full powertrain including the 448-horsepower, 5.2-liter V12 and a claimed top speed of 186 miles per hour. Check out more images of the 1994 Sogna at James Edition and Enmann, and we also found a couple videos, which are posted below, of the car's early development.
