That’s the Palatov D2 in the picture. They collaborated with Cascadia Motion on their latest (and first EV) entry for the Pikes Peak hill climb. Palatov, which has been featured previously on Jalopnik, is a fascinating operation.
Low profile, big wheels are the BIGGEST problem I have with resto-mods. Sometimes I am fully on board with the execution, but then 99.9% of the resto-mods I see just have AWFUL wheel/tire set-ups. Sidewalls that thin don’t work with the proportions of these cars.
Exactly! FWD makes the car handle like a forklift when driving in reverse; really not much different than setting a RWD car into a slide with appropriate RPM diving into the apex.
Finally! A hypercar with affordable replacement parts.
talking about EV, I wish there was at least a minor coverage about the new Yamaha EC-05, made to work with Gogoro swappable battery system, I know it’s still limited to Taiwan, but since 2015 Gogoro have been delivering such a great product and a good system that proved it could be done

That’s a cool rend— wait a minute...
CHMSL was mandatory on vehicles sold in the US beginning with model year 1986.
I can tell you that the core of the giant hasn’t changed one iota. They’re doing some nasty things to linux under the hood ATM that will lead to its eventual demise. Seems preposterous, how can Microsoft kill an open source project like Linux? They’re on the Linux Foundation board, giving it MONEY. “But isn’t it… Read more

OH, FOR GOD’S SAKE.
Oh, right! I remember that one. Didn’t it have a single-seat, which could slide out to form a bench? You can kind of see the slats interlocking here.
Always been a fan of the NT03, that and the TE37 look great on BMW’s. Especially with a bbk.
What? The fact that this is auto only proves that it absolutely takes outright performance as a priority over enjoyment and connection.
The Miata is the car you are talking about, not the A110.
