Aside from limited space, something like this looks frighteningly close to the perfect vehicle to me...AWD, manual, light, fun, reliable components.


...though in my case with probably 200-300hp so insurance (and maintenance) isn't stupidly high. These things also get good gas mileage with an engine swap because of how light they are. (In a comment, the shop says 45mpg highway with the setup in the video).

Of course the issue would be cost to build or finding one built in good condition for sale (ha!).

The biggest problem would be, how ugly it is.

Also, those transmissions aren't very reliable when you approach the 300hp range.
Looks don't matter behind the wheel, and little attention from passersby ;)

Which transmission? It's not the stock Insight one.
