Looks like they did a better than typical job on the motor design.

They should of spent more time on the interior. The exterior is nice.

Interior is typically a big piece of plastic and adds nothing to the performance of the car plus casting something that big is expensive - I think they used all standard car components so that they are easy to repair - except for the big stuff of course like extruded aluminum chassis. Looks pretty impressive and FINALLY someone has a manual transmission that shifts automatically.

I've read $80 - $100 K US.

And according to someone who was at the unveiling and who posted on the EVDL, people were writing cheques - not for deposits, but for the full amount.
