If you are at all interested in a kit car like that one...and you want to build it yourself and not a turn-key.....do not look anywhere but Factory Five Racing....best kit on the market as far as quality and ease of build....as far as maybe roadtsers or others....jus do a search for kit cars and it'll bring many many companies.....they're alot of fun and worth every penny

It took about 1 year to build....doing it slow and right.....roughly 40K in it....including the kit......Backdraft is nice....Superformance is very nice.....but 1...you dont build it...and 2...its pretty expensive considering you dont get a motor with it....and if you compare a Factory Five with a Superformance right next to each other....almost identical in setups....almost...btw..thanx for all the comments

One of my friends has a factory five cobra, blue with white stripes and black int. He built it himself in 5 months working on it a little every day. It has a 5.0 with a 150 shot of gas and weights 2300 with him in it. Its runs 6.90s on the gas with slicks in the 1/8. It has been built for 3 yrs and has 10k miles on it now and still looks great.
