i see.....and i guess it costs an arm and a leg unless u mass produce and make profit out of it. cheers

phong =P~


Yeah it's hugely expensive. To do a car completely from scratch it would be upwards of 5 grand, quite a bit upwards. Think they charge about 200 an hour or something ridiculous.

yes that's correct. arguably you'd be able to race it on track too, provided it passes scrutineering.

I have seen images of both the arrow and the 300+ models, and I always have to ask "why didnt Ford produce these vehicles" :( . They are soooooo it! I have to be honest the Holden Manaro is utter rubbish compared to those concepts (not that it was great design any ways).

LOL what the hell man.
There were to hat i know the arrow coupe, and also that 300+ coupe.
By the looks of things that is a custom, and they ran outta money so had to sell it.


family friends 1/2 own sprintex, who own(ed) the 2 300+ AU Coupes - one was sold, i believe they still have the other around somewhere - both were R&D cars as couldn't be rego'd!

Some questions from ebay link:

Q: will it come with a RWC AND REGO

A: No

Q: CAN I ROAD TEST IT

A: No. It is a bare body shell with no running gear.


if they are asking those sort of questions . . . . . why the f**k are they considering buying a shell? they wont know the front from the back with a brain that considers asking questions like that!
