Canadian startup Dubuc Super Light Car will debut its concept at the 2014 Montreal International Auto Show on January 17. They will show off the Tomahawk - a two seat coupe with a mid mounted engine.
It will be sold as a kit car, and it is said to have an eighteight times faster assembly time than comparable vehicles (250 hours versus 1,500-2,000 hours). It features a bonded and bolted aluminumu monocoque frame weighing 136kg and a lightweight polymer bodywork.
Suspension components come from the Corvette C4 and will be delivered with steering wheel support, pre-pierced for wires and hoses and an ergonomic cockpit that can sit a 6'3" driver.
The kit also includes doors that open at a 75-degree angle, door panels, dashboard, console, seats, a DOT-approved windshield, a see-through Targa roof and side mirrors. The folks from Dubuc SLC say the car weighs under 2,000 lbs (907 kg) fully equipped.
The complete body and frame kit is offered at CAD$19,995 (US$18,904) and requires the installation of mechanical components. The total cost of the car can reach or even exceed CAD$30,000 (US$28,365).
