I really wish I could afford one of these kits to build...2400lb curb weight...and drivetrain options galore.

Looks like fun. (without the big silly wing) Not so sure about paying up for a v12 ls motor. I suspect the v8 would be more than enough. A FF project would be fun. All new, or newish, parts rather than old rusty grimy stuff.

That’s pretty rad. While I like the styling, I wish it didn’t look so much like a C7 Vette.
Very true. With the C8 out soon. Might be better just to find a C7 at a good price. Heavier but likely more comfortable, better fit and finish, and can drop it off if it breaks. Might be cheaper all said and done too.

An LX V12? Didn't know the made such a thing. I know that Ryan Falconer builds a V12 based on the SBC but those are expensive. I think a BMW V12 would be better suited for something like this.

I think it was an Australian company that was first mashing together 2 LS motors to to make a V12. Yes expensive. Maybe someone else doing it now also. Might say in the article. I just skimmed through it.

The beauty of kit cars though is that its generally a lot easier to use whatever drivertrain you want. I certainly wouldn't use a LS v12 myself though...I think a Voodoo 5.2L with its flat plane crank would be more suitable to that car(dont think you can get a more exotic domestic engine than that).
