It's got four wheels but no doors, side panels, or roof.

It's got a Honda Civic type R engine producing 220bhp

It cost only $35,000

Only 100 are made each year

It'll blow most supercars off the road

It's street-legal in some states

Best. Video. EvAr!

He's wearing a pair of goggles and no helmet, and when he punches it, watching the skin on his face get pushed back is just hilarious!

Might have to find me one of these while I'm in Europe.

Top Gear did a great story on it. He said it was the funnest car he's ever driven. No weight to throw you out of a turn and fast as balls.

Was gonna say that. As mentioned above, Top gear did a great story on this a good while back. I'd get this in a heartbeat if I could. You'd be run over by SUVs tough..
