    Advice Please:Selling Kit cars/VWBeetle based kit cars in Europe

    Hi All, Can anyone out there help me please.. Does anyone know what the score is with selling Kit cars in Europe? I am looking at designing a new kit but I don't know what to base it on? The previous ones I have done have been based on the original VW Beetle because you can get a donor quite easily and the parts available are immense!! However I am looking at doing something which is based on a newer parts and I don't know what the ins and outs are involved as far as selling it in a different country? As I'm in England, Europe is the easiest place at the moment eventually going to the States.. Big Idea I know but you have to think big!! With a bug based kit you have the V5 documentation which you can use but with an all new chassis and donor parts do I have to get Sva'd before I can sell it abroad? It's a bit of a minefield for me at the moment but any help would be greatly appreciated, a case of Stella too if it's good!!! Many thanks, looking forard to hearing from anyone in the know...
