    I am really considering it, but would i be able to drive it on the streets and it comes with a supercharged honda type-r civic engine, any mods i should consider?

    uhhhh...

    its street legal...

    hence why it has blinkers and such...anywho...check out honda forums would be ur best bet...but i'm highly doubting that ecu is setup for ur run of the mill type r...so u might have to watch what ur doing if you'd actually modify this car...why i'm not really sure cuz there aren't too many cars u'd need to worry about beatin??

    Try Brammo Motorsport in Oregon. They've just done a deal to start manufacturing the Atom under license for you people in the USA.

    From what I've read, for the basic 160bhp version the expected price is set to be somewhere in the region of $40'000. There is also talk of them using GM sourced engines, but that is as yet unconfirmed.

    I have my sources :bigthumb:

    No, there was an article in this weeks Autocar Magazine, with one of the guys driving an Atom over in California.

    There's no info on the Autocar site as yet, but I would expect there to be some probably in this coming week.
