STi-based Murtaya Roadster. WTF.

Still being tuned in the UK, but it should find its way over to me early next year.

Based on a 99 STi Type-R, it's going to be LHD and use a US-spec 2.5L along with a US-spec 6-speed for registration purposes.

It's been exciting following the (often slow) progress of the first cars coming out...Can't wait to get it over here. smile

Interesting choice in location for the manufacturing, a remote farm. Doing it truly kit car style. Not a looker thats for sure. The interior is awful.

When Topher drove one, he said the interior was quite elegant and could use little upgrading.

Ok.
I think it looks boring. nothing exciting.  I want to either be amused by the interior or simply relaxed and comfortable. It looks like that interior would provide neither. You spend a lot more time looking at the interior of your car, it better be pleasing.

Re: STi-based Murtaya Roadster. WTF.

So I looked at the website last night, I checked out over 40~50 pages of it.

wow , its an amazing car !

and yea , the website is not Horrible, but def is not what that awesome car desrves it to be IF it is the manufacturer's website, Now .. if it is a personal page, as I was told, then its  a great effort, and a great job.

banana  when can we get a ride in one of those little monsters ????
