    I particularly like the rollbar. Unlike a single driver's hoop, this one says to your passenger "I tried to care a little" :D

    Too bad there's no sound with that video. You can't tell it's anything other than a regular Lotus (or Caterham) Seven.

    Obviously this car is more of a track toy or sunday driver than a "real car". Its closest North American counterpart would be the T-Rex Lightning. Which I still think is fantastically cool.

    The company is based in the Netherlands. I'd like to see the Europeans get into more of this performance EV development -- rather than fixating on diesels and then whining that Tesla won't (yet) sell Roadsters to them.

    CORRECTION: I didn't realize I had the audio muted on my computer. The video is much better with audio on.

    Hey, I like the idea of this. You can buy Westfield (or Caterham) kits sans drive train.

    Flyin' Miata : The Westfield

    Normally you have a donor car for the engine and few other things. I always thought it would be a nice project to put one of these together. Would be cool to do it with an electric drive train.
