Designed by Canadian firm Dubuc Super Light Car, the Tomahawk car kit offers fans of performance driving to build their own affordable and lightweight sports model.
The basic package ($19,995) consists of just a complete rustproof body and frame. This custom two-seater cabin can comfortably seat a driver as tall as 6'3" and weighing 275 pounds.
The complete kit also includes doors that open at a 75-degree angle, panels for the door innards and dashboard, a DOT-approved windshield, a transparent targa roof, and side mirrors. These additional add-ons will bring the total budget to around $30,000.
The Tomahawk is scheduled to make a debut at the 2014 Montreal Auto Show in mid-January 2014.
