hey,
any one know the name of the kit car - looks like a locost (had a very long bonnet), but is made out of fibreglass. Had a motorbike engine in it, plastic (maybe carbon fibre) seats, had a double loop roll bar at back. The name began with a 'T' and ended in a 'Q' - but i canne remember it for the life of me, even though it was on a programme this morning

tar all,
Dom

Had a padle shift gear box and flock covered steering wheel.....

The front slopes down into a lip, that forms the typical kit car front end. It deffo was something like Trioq or something.

nope none of those - i doubt its a well know name like dax rush, robin etc etc. Like i said, it started with a T, ended with a Q, just canne remember the what the rest of it was

google is a piece of shite and none of the kit websites have anything about it Plus the channel 4 website has bugger all about it as well...

Just noticed, they have changed it a bit - it now has a gearbox, instead of the paddle shift the previous prototype had. It also has some dials which the previous model didnt have, but i think they've had to change a lot to get it suitable for SVA/laws etc etc

Still nice car, shame you cant buy it though, yet anyways

edit - piccy of old prototype



brad - yea, in the production version it will have a windscreen and mirrors etc etc Thats just a picture for demo purposes etc
