Have you ever wanted to build your own car? OK, maybe it’s not really building a car, maybe we should call it an experience. Then again, the 2012 Rally Fighter isn’t just a car. It looks more like a post apocalyptic zombie fighting and/or evading machine. The appropriate question is: How would you like to have a life-changing experience? You will also come out on the other side with a really sweet vehicle.
For a mere $74,900, the experience (and vehicle) of a lifetime can be yours. This price tag includes six days in factory with a friend and an expert Builder Trainer building your own Rally Fighter. You will have all of the tools and build space available to you. Also included in the package are a catered lunch with snacks and drinks. You will have snacks and drinks supplied to you. You’ll stay at a local hotel with airport pick-up and drop-off. You will also be trained on how to drive your new beast.
Let’s talk about the car. Calling it a car seems like the understatement of the century. The tubular steel frame is hand built by Local Motors, the manufacturer of the Rally Fighter. The engine is a 6.2 liter V-8 supplying 430 horsepower and 424 foot lbs. of torque. All of that power is transferred to the wheels by an automatic transmission. The front suspension has 18” of travel and the rear suspension has a whopping 20” of travel.
To add to the uniqueness of the Rally Fighter, only 2,000 of them are available. Look for the Rally Fighter on the American version of Top Gear. One word can sum it up: impressive.
