    It a Diablo, NO Wait, it is a Shelby Areo

    Tell me if my eyes are playing tricks or does this thing look like a Diablo Kit that has been modified?

    That started life as an old IFG, you can tell by the rounded front fenders. They used to be an IFG builder if I remember correctly.

    Started as a Kit Car or a Dream and ended in selling for $431,100... NOT BAD!

    they built a few exceptionally good diablo replicas, like JC Hamlin's, but high end replicas have a very small market (over $90k on a replica diablo today is very hard to sell) since you can literally buy an early model diablo with a blown motor, and swap in a cheaper drivetrain for under $100k (not that anyone has, but everyone brings this up).

    so they got out of replicas, modified a diablo body heavily where no one will bother trying to sue, and put in a crazy drivetrain. the price has gone up with the hp, it was $300k.

    PS: the car is 720hp to 1200hp, and has a carbon fiber body and full race tube chassis. its built LIKE a kit car but isnt one (or even close to one)
