Forget The 355 Replica, This Is The 360 !

That does look pretty good, but wouldn't that cost a fair amount? (as in save a bit more and buy a real one?) :blink:

Its still an MR2 at the end of the day......

Impressive though that is it. Looks great, but shame the new MR2s don't go like a Ferrari!

Are these cars road legal when they've been modified to this extent?

Well seeing as they're dicking about with the chassis like the subframe and all the external bodywork then I'm assuming this hasn't been crash tested etc - like everything in Europe has to be TUV certified, just wondered if there were standards that these replicas had to adhere to in the UK...

Thought that sort of thing would have been obvious?

Quick look on Google:

Kit Conversions

This is where a kit of new parts is added to an existing vehicle or old parts are added to a kit comprising a manufactured body, chassis or monocoque bodyshell. The general appearance of the vehicle will change and result in a revised description on the registration certificate.

A vehicle will retain its donor registration mark if either the original unmodified chassis or unaltered monocoque bodyshell and two other major components are used. If a new monocoque bodyshell or chassis from a specialist kit manufacturer is used (or an altered chassis or bodyshell from an existing vehicle) together with two major components from a donor vehicle, an age related mark will be assigned. The mark will be based on the age of the donor vehicle. An ESVA, SVA or MSVA test will be required to register the vehicle.

Where there are insufficient parts from a donor vehicle or in cases where the original registration mark is unknown, an ESVA, SVA or MSVA certificate will be required to register the vehicle and a 'Q' prefix registration number will be allocated.

Now we know :)
