    I wanna build this car!.

    Anyone play video games?

    I do and this is a car I've been eyeing since I bought the game "Rage Racer" back in early 1997

    Heres a quick vid of the car

    I've always wanted to build this car using a Dodge Viper V10 but I honestly do not see that happening realistically with that body design and not to mention what type of transaxle would work with that engine. After doing the Lamborghini build that I wanna do I was thinking about doing this instead of a Mclaren F1 or Zonda, Enzo. I do know that there was a kitcar back in 2002 called "D-type" which it was designed by a woman in australia, it used a tube chassis, a 300ZX motor with a renault transmission and transaxle that was remotely close to this design. The last i heard their website was www.cobrakitcars.net but sadly it does not work anymore. :P

    How would you go about designing something like this on your own? Any suggestions?. Does anyone from australia know anything about the D-type kitcar?.

    I'am also currently in the process of building a 1:18 scale model of this car over a Murcielago 1:18 scale model. Not quite the way I want it but its close enough.

    It reminds me of the Vector a true American super car. No kits of it that I know of.

    The car is based on the Lamborghini Countach, Diablo VT and Vector W8. ;D

    Hey can I have more information? Like build pics? or perhaps a video of the car running?.

    How on earth would I design a body like the one in the game?.
