    Despite the fact that those headlights should look like shit, I actually kinda like them. Kinda has an :eek3: look to it.

    There's no airbags? I don't think it can be street-legal without airbags, can it?

    Ah, so it's a kit car. No regulations then. That explains it.

    I'd put a big-turboed VW 2.0T in there just to fuck with people. :rofl:

    I don't think that was the plan. If I remember correctly, they ran into production cost issues and the only ended up making a few of them because costs doubled or so.

    I saw one of those several years ago on the highway. It's interesting to say the least.

    Not entirely true. The IP cluster is from a 97-02 F-body (different gauge face with higher speed markings). Headlight switch is from the same. The HVAC controls appear sourced from a GMT400 truck/SUV.

    Those things just smack of early 90's GM quality.

    The interior is definitely meh, but you don't buy a car like that because it has extra cupholders. I dunno why, but looking at that interior I can actually kinda imagine what the car would feel like to drive -- rear-weighted, growly, and ready to set the back wheels on fire at a moment's notice.

    Then again, I still think the Lamborghini Diablo was 10x the car the Murcielago is, so I guess I'm all about minimalist interiors in sports cars.

    I can see that steering wheel and shifter assembly getting replaced about 5 minutes after purchase, though.
